Decent company to work for despite the downturn in oil and gas that was occurring during my tenure with them. Had the situation been better I am sure that the working environment would have been better.

Overall Good
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Atlanta, GASeptember 6, 2018
It's an overall good company to work for. Flexible hours, working remotely is a good perk. At the moment work is slow and it has been hard to stay motivated but management is working hard to keep everyone informed of potential work coming.
Pros
Flexible hours, working remotely

Not bad for a large company
Automation Consultant (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXAugust 29, 2018
My particular group was very disorganised. Design help was non-existent. Staff engineers were bad about taking the designers without asking or reviewing workloads or dead lines.
Pros
As a company Worley seemed well run.
Cons
My dept was not typical and soon lost the client.

Saudi is not for everyone and I was a prisoner for 6 weeks
Area Lead Designer (Former Employee) –  Ar RiyāḍAugust 28, 2018
I wouldn’t recommend going to Saudi unless all you want to do is EAT, SHOP, and PRAY. it’s not for anyone who grew up with Western Values because what you witness in Saudi is beyond description. You’re safety is of little concern and the hypocrisy is mind boggling.

Poor company, greed has full control.
Senior Mechanical Designer (Former Employee) –  Reading, PAAugust 25, 2018
You are just a number with this company.
Extreme nepotism along with age and gender discrimination.
Was once a great company, now a terrible place to work.
This company is only in the USA to take millions of dollars worth of work out and give to other countries to line their own pockets.
Pros
You have benifits, good vacation.
Cons
Poor management, all work goes to India or China

Competitive Fast Track environment
Lead Planner / Project Controller (Former Employee) –  Ash SharqīyahAugust 18, 2018
Very Competitive environment with fast track projects. High stress due to the fact that continuity and job security is related to projects at hand. Management swapping at regular basis crates new challenges.

WorleyParsons
Sr. Technical Consultant (Current Employee) –  Reading, PAAugust 10, 2018
WorleyParsons appears not to have a good on-going marketing group as there always seems to be lack of work.

A typical workday consists of developing client engineering documents for construction of major equipment. Most of the work is done on computer and there is little travel opportunity unless it's a large money contract project.

I learned lots of additional computer skills and how an engineering process works and develops a final construction product.

Management is laid low and interacts primarily at weekly meetings with the client. Since there were few employee reviews and few raises/promotions, it was hard to tell where you stood in the company.

Workplace culture was basically every man for himself as far as finding steady work. People were friendly, but protective of the work they had and often seemed standoffish on interaction with projects. There seemed to be little employee loyalty as they came and left the company regularly.

Hardest part of the job was trying to figure out canned computer programs and the engineering process without in-house training seasons or employee orientation.

Most enjoyable part of the job was the travel when it was available. Pay and benefits were excellent.
Pros
Good pay/benefits
Cons
No work security

My take on working at WP for nearly a decade
Engineering Manager, Project Manager (Former Employee) –  IndonesiaJuly 24, 2018
Spending close on a decade working for WorleyParsons on 3 continents, I can honestly say I'm grateful for the time I spent there. The mentoring and training was second to none. The responsibility given afforded me at such a young age, in Kazakhstan was very liberating and WP empowers their own and this method is successful in achieving the best from the workforce.
Pros
Mentoring, Freethinking, Any idea is accepted
Cons
None I can think of
