This is the old Brits Boy Club where only men get promoted. It is a toxic environment where you never know if you have a job. Management are arrogant, incompetent and inappropriate. Trying to run the company like it is in the UK when this is Canada and things are done differently. The hardest part of the job is trying to order parts when the vendor has put us on hold because the bills have not been paid. I learned how not to treat people.
Working for Babcock Canada was a great experience. The warehouse can be a very demanding job as there are very specific and tight deadlines that need to be met in order not to delay the work process. It has a great family like work structure with great support and fantastic benefits. I would recommend this company to anyone. There are always many job opportunities throughout the company, across Canada and throughout their international branches.
Babcock Canada engages in interesting and very challenging engineering work that are often long running and difficult. As a member of the Project Management team, I had the opportunity to enhance my PM skills in a new field.
Very nice offices, smart group of people
Stressful at times given the nature of the work
Babcock Canada is a great place for your retirement or longterm career. The company prefers advancement based on experience and education rather than competency. Lots of bureaucracy. However if you take a laid back approach to everything and get your work done, compensation is adequate and is a nice atmosphere to spend 8 hours of your day.
Bureaucracy, Lack of Culture
Confusing and ever changing leadership and corporate structure. North American Team was reliable and positive enviroment
North American team could not operate independently from the UK operations, the structure of the organization from the top down changed at least 3 times during my time there. There was a considerable lack of transparency from leadership in the UK.
Babcock was a great company to work for.management was very good from VP to GM.. great team effort. for a company with a lot of moving parts it was a great place to have worked.
great place to work good benefits as well ..
company shut down!
Babcock Canada is not an enjoyable place to work. Management typically focus solely on schedule and pressuring staff to meet deadlines without providing enough resources, support or communication. There is no team atmosphere or encouragement to collaborate. Staff and projects are routinely segregated into silos. Many people quit to move on to other more appreciative and supportive employers. The only positive I can add is the compensation is generally good.
micro management, under resourced, bullying managers, rushed and pressured atmosphere
High paced environment that requires a deep understanding of supply chain and project management. Complex projects and daily challenges working across multi-functional divisions facilitates professional growth and achievement.

Jobs at Babcock International
Typical day at work start at 6 a.m and mostly busy through out the day because of ongoing project and finished at 6 p.m. I have learned a lot about Job costing, Accounts payable and Accounts receivable. Management was great and helping. Workplace culture was not much friendly because of the busy project schedule. The hardest part of the job is to dealing with employees about pay related questions. The enjoyable part is that day goes pretty fast.
Three days off after 18 days
All this place has to offer is a pay cheque , they encourage back stabbing , very cut throat , safety are lost at there jobs , management blames workers for all failures, they should be closing the doors very soon, they never pay there bills
Poor safety program, just sad place to work
Safety program based on signatures and finding blame, management will tell you that they're trying to make things better but abandon you right after, accounts with vendors frequently get overdue leaving you waiting for parts. Paychecks were steady for me but there was at least a couple of letters sent out company wide stating banking issues and late checks.
Pay was ok for me but not worth the hassle of the management
Management heavy, not enough front line workers, overtime needs approval on a daily basis, safety program used as ways to screw employees, parts constantly unavailable due to bills not being paid, management abandons problems instead of solving them
This is a great company to work for. My direct manager teaches me more about the company every day. He teaches me about the technical part of my job. I have learned that you have to be patient with computers as the computer system is very slow.
Management is a joke, pay checks often have issues, frequently don't pay union dues so benefits get cancelled. Great coworkers in many areas besides management. Tooling for shops is pathetic. Company has major issues paying vendors, often on hold and can't buy any parts or basic shop supplies. Safety program changes daily seems no one knows the black and white rules. Overall it's better than nothing but wouldn't recommend anyone join this organization
None come to mind
Horrible management, frequently not paying union dues so you receive letters saying your benefits are cancelled, zero chance of advancement
Extremely intense environment with targeted work. large work force which is great to be able to meet new trades and people.
A typical day at work would include preparing the location of work and colleting permits where necessary. the job itself can vary from simple installation to fabricating complex fuel lines and high pressure lines. Working on the flagship Aircraft carrier Queen Elizabeth is a very moral boosting experience knowing im one of the pair of hands that help build a majestic piece of technology.
a very wide use of equipment and access to onsite training.
