Typical large industrial construction company
Site Purchaser (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB18 October 2018
The best part of the job was the relationships built with the tradesmen in the field. Management was supportive and expectations were well defined. The only downside was job security was limited to actual work in hand and not on backlog of work to be done at a later date. IE: when the project was finished, you were laid off and not brought in to home office to prepare for the next job.
Pros
Supportive home office supervision
Cons
Disorganized field supervision

HSE Coordinator/Advisor/Trainer (Former Employee) –  Conklin, AB5 October 2018
Awesome Company with a positive and successful safety culture. I learned a new Incident Investigation and Health management program. Hardest part of my job was getting to know the 200 plus workers on my project. The most enjoyable part of my job was the ability to help workers complete their tasks in a safe and productive manor
Pros
Working for a general Contractor with multiple trades and services
Cons
six and a half hour comute to the work site

Interesting work, generally good people, a bit clicky
Administration (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 October 2018
Administrative duties generally included reviewing long technical reports for the consulting staff and preparing them for the client. Few diversions from this work.
Began to learn the task of writing minutes with little direction or useful criticism.
There is a need to train admin staff a little better however, there may have been two contributing factors to this challenge. 1,a language barrier between one of the two people that trained me and myself and 2, the second person training me had applied and was denied my position. These two factors may have been contributors to my discontent and may have kept me from picking things up as quickly as what I would have liked.
Management was mostly absent and took little time to provide instructions, perhaps a style.
Some people were very supportive and helpful others not.
Generally a good place to work.
Pros
Great benefits/pay
Cons
You have to know what you are doing to be successful

I loved working with Worley throughout
Sr. Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB12 June 2018
It was the most enjoyable learning experience of my professional life. Typically everyone is mutually very helpful and work culture is excellent.
Good management supportive and encouraging to engineers whether young or old. Also providing lots of learning opportunities and continuous training.
In nut shell I liked Worley too much without any hiccups and did not find any hardest part in job to describe.
I enjoyed all along, so no complaints except they let go people like me due to sudden downturn in the engineering sector.
Pros
Very good work culture, very supportive bosses and colleagues, good Salary and recognition, Respectful atmosphere
Cons
Nothings come to mind except shortage of some technical standard of their own

Lead Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Sarnia, ON29 October 2018
It is a good place to start, but if you need better salaries you need to switch to other companies after a while.

The work environment is often professional and less of office politics as compared to other big EPCs.

Great company, hard times
iM Support Technician II (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL4 May 2018
Great company, met a lot of amazing people.

Unfortunately during hard times, management was disorganized, and employees were asked to work multiple roles when staff were laid off or terminated. No pay raise for years, even when taking on extra work or a promotion. Also took away a lot of benefits. Helpful suggestions were never taken serious or even acknowledged.

Company did what was needed to survive during hard times, hopefully it has bounced back.
Pros
Relaxing environment, lots of support
Cons
Reorganization during hard times took a lot away from employees

Good company with potential to become great again.
SENIOR PROJECT CONTROL LEAD (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB13 March 2018
Days are packed and busy as a project life should be.

Some really great people work within the organization. Some of their main clients are wonderful to work with as well.

Volunteering efforts are embraced as well as family/life/work balance.

Get to know the people in management, they are open door policy people and want to know you. This helps with advancement and knowing what is coming next for projects.

Comprehensive Benefits and a good HR group.

It's expected to reach further do more, do more which compromises the work/life balance. Learn to say no but still deliver quality with efficiency.
Pros
Nice clean work space, fair policies, great people
Cons
All organizations have this, you know what it is... rise above, do your best, go home and leave it behind.

Decreased Benefit packages, Hard to get hired.your more of a number now.

They like social people, not professional people
Principle Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB25 June 2018
This company has the talent to identify good engineers and laid them off. It is full of social people instead of professional people. There's no perfect company, but this company in deed developed kind of culture in a very different way from to be professional.

Poor management and recruiting
Apprentice Pipefitter (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB23 July 2018
They easily black list you from ever regaining work just because you take a few days off for being sick when you come back to work they lay you off. Then when you reapply for work they won't rehire you. They judge you from the past other than work experience. Wages and benefits are good.
Pros
Wages and benefits
Cons
Not recognizing former employees for there work experience and ability to work
