    I have been working at Worley full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Generally speaking, it's a nice bunch of people at the London office. Pay is reasonable, although a little inconsistent in some areas.

    Cons

    The straw that broke the camels back for me, and the reason I'm now looking to leave, was the vision for the London office outlined by senior management in a meeting recently. Operating it like a "car showroom", where customers come to place their orders in a shiny London office, and we then send it off to India to be produced, is not what any of the engineers here want to be hearing. Particularly given the dreadful quality and reliability issues we have experienced on multiple workshares over recent years. As someone with a good 20 years left to work, my future here and all the commitment and enthusiasm I have previously shown, evaporated when I heard this. Things like the lack of training and development opportunities, lack of pay increases, unpaid bonuses etc... are now sources of resentment, where I have previously ignored them. In the interests of completeness, I should also flag up the general incompetency of the senior management. They failed to keep up with the rapid growth of the company during the 2000s, and simply threw money about to fix problems rather than developing solutions and managing them. As a result, now things are not so rosy and their isn't money to throw about, they're drowning in their own mismanagement. I'm not convinced any of them are actually suitably experienced to fill the positions they hold.

    I have been working at Worley

    Pros

    Good international experience available, but they tend to recruit from low cost centres which do not add value to projects and actually cost clients due to their lack of experience.

    Cons

    senior management which does not come from a process background are making catestrophic project decisions which are ruining projects.

    I worked at Worley full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    I am sorry but there is nothing positive that comes to my mind.....

    Cons

    The company recently acquired Jacobs ECR business and looks like they have no idea in how to manage the business. The benefits are so bad that it is shameful to be compared with other organizations. Travel policy is even worst, it seams like you are working for a very cheap organization. Houston office is full of senior management personnel (there are several parallel organizations working within the organization) with no responsibilities or accountability and they are all charging their time to G&A. But for the real workforce, if you dont have a project number to charge you will be sent home regardless of how good you are. Back log and margin numbers were being forged to show that everything is good but the reality is different. Please be very careful and read and review all of their benefits and policies before applying for any position for this company.

    I worked at Worley full-time

    Pros

    Some strong front line resources remain which despite being disengaged, do continue to overachieve in order to meet or exceed customer expectations.

    Cons

    Senior management policy and practices over the last five years have created an environment of alienation with the front line human resources. As the economic climate improves within the hydrocarbons industry as well as Alberta, expect a large exodus from the company.

    I worked at Worley full-time

    Pros

    Project teams are excellent to work with, and the benefits are average.

    Cons

    Senior management gets shuffled around time and time again, only to have some of the same inadequate senior managers still around but in different areas, only concerned with their own well being and not the people that run the day to day operations.
