Management needs to be revamped!
1st year apprentice pipefitter (Former Employee) –  Blackfalds, ABJanuary 12, 2016
Overall great place to work! Start out with morning stretches etc to limber up and get ready for the day. Learned a lot about pipefitting in general. They preach safety safety safety until it infringes on production then they turn a blind eye then wonder why someone gets hurt. Spend most of the day trying to get the proper tools to do the job on a multi million dollar contract. Would perform daily inspections on equipment and pull out of service due to not passing and then would have nothing to replace it with. Certain bosses have big attitude and need to be knocked down a few pegs.
Pros
Local
Cons
Terrible management

Advisor - Health, Safety and Environment (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABDecember 8, 2015
Consulting work requires work to be available or to be searched out unfortunately at this time there is no demand or projects.

When there is work you must have the ability to work quickly and be agile to changing environments and client expectations.

Its a good place to work have more opportunities for Piping Design Jobs both for Major and Maintenance projects
Piping Designer (Former Employee) –  Fort Saskatchewan, ABDecember 7, 2015
Worleyparsons Is a good company, with lots of good and hard working people. Have lots of opportunities to Learn.
Typical Work day is focusing on the task at hand, Design to review and Isometric to produce depending on the schedule.
Learning is continuos process , different design perspective of both the maintenance and operation point of view and safety as well.
Management company wide , there are too many managers, but project wise its good.
Hardest part or challenging part are the different changes in the design which is usually resolve up to the 60% milestone of the project.
Enjoyable part is designing and producing drawings.. and eventually seeing the work that I designed being constructed at field.
Pros
Good People and Lead
Cons
To many management people

A good company gone bad
Geotechnical Engineer E.I.T (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABNovember 30, 2015
With recent changes, all the talented individuals have left the company and immature and arrogant people have been placed in charge. This has ruined the work environment and moral of the whole company.

Terrible place if you are not in the "click" or related to someone for advancement
office administrator (Former Employee) –  Nanticoke, ONNovember 25, 2015
The big problem with this company is a total dishonesty of what you can achieve. If you go over and above your duties they are not recognized, nor do lower positions get the increases they deserve. The Management is totally incompetent in relation to recognizing value personnel, and you are or can be discarded at a moments notice. If you want to get somewhere, don't go here! They seem to only understand their own babble. The reason their size and share prices have gone down is not only the economic situation, they have been overpaying for people in positions they shouldn't be in (and it appears you see relentless weekly emails where someone else has been appointed) in higher positions, and unnecessary travel, expenses etc, the incredible dollar amounts spent on meetings and Townhalls which seldomly produced any further improvement to the people who will be affected, which is the worker bees, due to no one truly speaking their minds, and ridiculous markups on their services. When you have the client telling you to reduce your mark up, looks to me like you may have a problem.

Good Luck!
Pros
Some truly awesome people (perhaps a handful of trusted ones)
Cons
Too many Chiefs, waste of finances, lousy management, too many self absorbed managers

Good Job Work/Life Balance
Project Manager Engineering (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, ABNovember 20, 2015
Excellent Work/Life balance at WorleyParsons with great mentorship and support from immediate supervisors and management. A company with a full range of diversity and equal opportunity. Most enjoyable part was the camaraderie with coworkers and work atmosphere of a second family. Unfortunate mass number of layoffs and attrition due to collapse of crude oil prices and downturn in economy.

WorleyParsons was a great company prior to the economic downturn.
Project Accounting Lead, Services Canada West (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, ABNovember 5, 2015
I have worked for WorleyParsons for 5 years and the first 4 years were great, lots of job security, responsibility and opportunities. With the decline in oil prices, the company has cut staffing levels drastically and managers have had to take lesser roles in order to maintain a position with the company. Morale is very low within the company at the moment.

Typical Oil and Gas company
Intermediate Document Controller (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABNovember 1, 2015
Pay and benefits were excellent. However, job security was non-existent - as is the case with all Oil and Gas companies. Co-workers were usually helpful. They should have tried a lot harder to avoid layoffs.
Pros
Good pay and benefits.
Cons
No job security, especially with the low price of oil.

A day at work
Vibroacoustics & Pipeline Engineer (Current Employee) –  Calgary, ABOctober 21, 2015
- 1 greeting co-workers
- 2 meeting young engineers at there stations or at coffee place (talking casually about problems, resolution, etc.)
-3 starting up computer and checking mail, sorting, answering
-4 taking time to work on assignment
-5 learning new problems or resolutions
-6 brief meeting with young engineers and delegating or asking for a check of work done so far
-7 making sure young engineers understand what they are working on
-8 hardest part is when somebody fails and we need to "fix work" for that person. If hat happens more than a few times a persona must take responsibility and that i the hardest part of my job
-9 enjoying success of my group or personal achievements - the best
Pros
