Pros

Multinational workforce & dynamic organisation due to the industry of the company. Many new avenues to further ones career in the shipping and offshore industry with the market leader.

Cons

Too rigid as far as introduction of new comer´sto organisation goes. You are constantly watched. More like the management wants you to make an error rather than help you solve it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lossen up.

    Teekay overhired and underpaid me. The job was not as described. Very disappointing.

    I have been working at Teekay

    Pros

    Good employee programs - health benefit, fresh fruit, good vacation and flexben, nice offices.
    SOme great people and some very bright minds.

    Cons

    Extremely competitive, plastic people. Tough enviornment. People lie and toss others under the bus to create their own advancement. "Stars" are people who fit the clique. Roles are poorly defined, feedback is withheld and reviews are set to be the same for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about fit and what you are really trying to hire and should be paying before you make the move. If you try to hire the "Best" regardless of real needs, you add to turnover.
    Find out the real situation and get involved in what managers are doing. Do you know they are making the right decisions?
