Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 20 July 2017
In the early years the company had a family like culture, but as the company grew this changed. It became very corporate driven. The company went through many reorganizations which made it difficult at times to feel connected. Flex-able with work life balance.

There is no job security and it seems that the longer you are with them the more likely they are to let them go before someone you has been there for a shorter period of time. It costs them less in benefits. Also if you disagree with anything they look at you as not being a "team player".

Environmental Technician/Supervisor (Former Employee) – Cold Lake, AB – 31 May 2017
I’m a former employee of the Cold Lake office. The company and job allowed me to pursue interests outside of work. It was never an issue to get a few days off here or there, if a personal emergency occurred. The local client kept us pretty busy, but opportunities to try out a different project would pop up.

Quality Assurance Document Checker / Controller (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 May 2017
WorleyParsons is far better than its EPCM competitors. It truly values its employees, offering good wages and outstanding benefits, but carries a gigantic management team, which contributes negatively to the company's overhead and limits the chance of advancement.
The company's line of business is extremely risky, not offering any job security. But this is at least recognized by the management, who pays the employees well while there are projects.
Great work-life balance, pay and benefits. Treats employees with respect
Well balanced work environment that I enjoyed for 9 years.

IM Program Director (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 May 2017
Was a great place to work with a growth outlook in several industries. Recent economic downturn has resulted in the company taking drastic cost cutting measures and no longer taking an employee first approach which was a key feature of the company previously.
Good salaries previous to downturn
No longer has a growth outlook and has turned inwards to survive in current economic downturn
IT Technician (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 1 May 2017
The place is falling apart at the seams and no one seems to care about the people that actually do the work at the locations. Unfortunately, the IT OH staff are treated with such disrespect by global IT management that you'll be shown the door just to save the shareholders of WorleyParsons regardless of your value to the business. very sad state of affairs.
