Good company

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A global engineering consulting firm where you will work with talented people and be exposed to sound engineering and project management skills. Remuneration is generally competitive in comparison with market rates. Job security depends on market conditions. In a boom market, the going is good. In an economic downturn, you may be shown the door.

Pros

Professionalism

Large engineering consultancy

The workplace was relaxed in a typical open plan office of engineers and draughtsmen. Billable hours and timesheets are key to surviving here. There's no rigid framework and there's help and guidance when required.

Pros

Variety of technical work

Cons

You have to keep chasing the hours

Accommodating

The group I work in is very flexible with work hours and location. They strive to give a good work life balance. Management is helpful and understanding that sometimes life gets in the way. Good safety culture.

Supportive place to work

Worley provided good guidance and support for the role which had a very challenging client. There was good facilities and tools available to enable me to complete my role.

Techno nerds

Full of techno nerds and very clique-ey. Little or no teamwork. A lot of internal competition. A fairly repulsive culture. Not many people are useful work companions and not that much real competence either. You have to feel for the clients.

Global company

Global company with many opportunities for development and growth. you can make your own career. Great environment for an enthusiastic and upbeat professional looking to make their mark on the world and help clients achieve their goals

Stressful environment

The company is still trying to find its feed after the merger and the processes are confusing. Some managers are great but some do not know their position, expecting you to take the fall for their incompetence. Engineering team is great and knowledgeable but are unsure on hours required to spend on the projects. The culture is stressful specifically near deadlines.

Not sustainable employment

No value recognition. Manager get the credit for hard work of subordinates. No opportunity for growth. You have to be either the bully to abuse others or hard worker to be abused.

Pros

Nice view at QV1

Cons

Abusive workplace

fun and supportive working environment

Had a wonderful time working in WP just after relocating to Australia. A lot of support blending into my new HR role, which after some time allowed me to progress further into HR systems. Great work-life balance, great location right in the centre of Perth walking distance to the train line.

Pros

great team

Cons

hr function outsourced

Poor workplace culture

Cronyism and favouritism is rampant. Management liking you is more important that your job performance. Promotions, wage increases and other advantages go to individuals who act obsequiously towards management. This breeds a conniving and unhealthy workplace culture where employees throw each other under the bus with abandon.

Cons

Cronyism and favouritism

Friendly engineering environment

Its the best place for any graduate engineer i would say, who will apply the various aspects of engineering learnt during your four years of study to practical applications under the technical guidance of seniors who are stalwarts in their own domain. One of the best work culture in the world.

Cons

the lower level doesn't knows what is happening at the top. Just follow instructions

Good people, questionable strategy in the modern age

Very good people in an industry that is extremely challenged by the emergence and encroachment of new age competitors to create a less engineered future.

Great Learning but questionable leadership

Great start for anyone trying to get into the industry but very questionable leadership decision and direction. More Flexible working hours, sometime free lunches, regular business updates. A lot of "in your on time" complete "Required" safety Q&A which will take hours out of your week.

Pros

as above

Cons

My working time with Worley Parsons was very good

This contract with Worley Parsons on the 155 Port Headland FMG Port Upgrade as an E&I Superintendent was a great position and job. It allowed me to experience the management of electrical contractors, Iron Ore construction, Ship loaders, Ore stackers and reclaimers and HV distrubition

Challenging work environment

Challenging work environment from a point of view of managing a number of Projects' expectations. Constantly we are expediting engineering deliverables.

Engineering restricted by budget.constraints.

Extremely long hours worked, balanced somewhat by reasonable rosters. Other constraints are the procedures and standards that are never updated unless there are some monetary gains.

Pros

Good safety culture.

Cons

Not interested to embrace any new method of working.
Was this review helpful?

Result focussed company.

Exceptionally long hours at work. Working alongside various disciplines and required to interact with them. Client is mainly focussed on budget constraints.

Pros

New types of engineering being introduced.

Cons

Difficult place to introduce new ideas.
