Always excited to go work. Team spirit is the culture and day-to-day way of life. Management are approachable and care for the welfare of the company. Growth opportunities is unlimited. The salary is far better compare to competitors in the industry. Employees work together as a team to achieve together
Staff business, Yearly bonus, Fantastic renumeration, Work life balance
I have been fortunate to have worked within exceptional groups of employees and can't ask for more.
There are several challenges with management, though. There is a general lack of transparency in performance reviews and hardworking employees are not given adequate encouragement. Performance Review process is a joke, in general.
There is no opportunity for career advancement or training.
Business Development group appears to lack focus.
Great work-life balance; some 'good teams'; several exceptionally professional staff.
No transparency in performance reviews, one-way communication from the top, lack of training and advancement options; not so good Insurance options
Deal with clients and employees and I learned a lot of the 5 years I worked for WorleyParsons. The project managers were great to work for but if the client did not like their political there boss would remove them from the project. The culture was diverse which made it nice to work environment.
Bad CEO he didn't care about getting new projects all he care was about his bonuses to his colleagues. WorleyParsons was either bidding to high on projects or low that we did not receive not one of the projects.
WP used to be a wonderful place to work, but began deteriorating a few years ago when the 'global mindset' crept in, and all employees became numbers. No regard for work/life balance, and the lay-offs were handled poorly. Very unfortunate that a one time people oriented company has dissolved into what it is today - mismanaged, overspent, with no regard for it's employees or their loyalty.
Lack of training; no work/life balance; employees are numbers
Productive work environement with sustainability issues
Project Manager (Former Employee) – Reading, PA – June 2, 2016
Excellent first few years, but impacted by volatile business conditions and high employee turnover, i.e. two successive managers left the company and two more successive managers were laid off. Unwieldy management structure that has a dozen layers communicating with all employees all the time with surveys; layoff, retirement, new hire announcements; organization changes; newsletters; directives; procedures; constantly revised policy documents, etc. Company management structure and positions reorganized each year for the past several years created great deal of uncertainly.
Excellent compensation, benefits, and IT support. Great learning environment.
Major Project Manager (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – October 17, 2016
The loyalty by the Senior Managers to the staff that made them and the company large is not there. I worked a total of 15 years for the company. Made them millions of dollars and saved their clients hundreds of millions. Built a world class Engineering Team in the Anchorage Office and at the end a more Senior Manager let me go so he could take my place on the project team.
Can't think of any
The new CEO has destroyed the company moving the engineering and design work to India and China.
Enjoyed working with a bunch of great people for the past 18 years.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – 575 N. Dairy Ashford, Houston TX 77079 – August 9, 2016
I enjoyed working for the company for the past 18 years. The people there were a great bunch of people. A typical day was doing what ever came across your desk that day. I was always learning new things, which I liked. The management was fair. They tried to do what was best for the employee until the down turn of the economy.
I really enjoyed going to work every day, even though after moving to the Katy Freeway, the drive was a bit much. I really felt that all my coworkers were part of my family. We would do just about anything for each other.
The company moved from Greenway Plaza, to Bellaire to Katy Frwy. and Dairy Ashford
Civil Engineer Engineer (Former Employee) – Arcadia, CA – July 13, 2016
I really enjoyed working with Worleyparsons. Good management and good benefits. Nice co-workers The hardest part is how to prioritize the multiple assignments. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting the job done.
Desktop Support Specialist (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – November 16, 2015
This job started off promising as a contractor and I was hired on within 6 months. The salary compensation is better than most offered but still just above average. They have an awesome work life balance policy and I didn't have to work if I needed to take time off on short notice. My co-workers are great, friendly and helpful. We are not micro-managed and so, expected to work independently and be responsible. The hardest part of my day is probably getting out of bed, but once I'm at work we get our job done then we can relax a bit. Unfortunately, the promise it had no longer exists as any hope I had for advancement had been outsourced.
