Productive small town mentality
Environmental Technician/Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Cold Lake, AB31 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.
Pros
Small town culture
Cons
That steep hill at the river valley during a freak snow storm

Better than its competitors
Quality Assurance Document Checker / Controller (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 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.
Pros
Great work-life balance, pay and benefits. Treats employees with respect
Cons
No job security. Enjoy it while employed

Going downhill
IM Program Director (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB9 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.
Pros
Good salaries previous to downturn
Cons
No longer has a growth outlook and has turned inwards to survive in current economic downturn

Excellent place to work
Fort Hills Expeditor / Close Out Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB2 May 2017
Everyday was different from the previous day. Working with various leads and managers provided insightful overviews to the entire project process.
Employees were friendly and cooperative. We all saw common goal and worked towards it.
The hardest part of the job was reconciling client requests to the agreed contracts as sometimes they did not coincide.
The most enjoyable part of the job was accomplishing tasks that were previously though of as unattainable.

not the most comfortatble place to work
IT Technician (Former Employee) –  Markham, ON1 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.

Fantastic Management and Incredible people to work with
Projects Executive Administrator (FIFO) (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB6 April 2017
This was probably the best company I have ever had the pleasure to work with. Not only the people in Management but the people in the office and on site were very professional and well organized. I learned so many things and had a lot of good challenges and experiences both in the office in Edmonton and on site in Ft.McMurray. I honestly can't say enough good things about working for them and all the knowledge that I gained.
Here I was responsible for all VP Administration work as well as lead contact for contractors on site. Stock intake and reordering. Document Control, Blueprint intake and deliveries on site. Control of all travel and car rentals for VP's and onsite contractors.
