    I have been working at Teekay full-time

    Pros

    Great flexibility. Ability to re-arrange work schedule to balance work and life.
    Good benefits (although they could add a little more to be great).
    The company is once again in growth mode.

    Cons

    Not very many opportunities for advancement.
    Employees work hard and often work long hours. it seems that sometimes only the biggest and the best get recognized for the contribution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current CEO doesn't take the time to get to know the people. Previous CEO knew everyones name

    I worked at Teekay

    Pros

    Structured compensation package, very transparent. Some staff are very nice and professional. Several people are very skilled.

    Cons

    Leadership is inconsistent. Direction/expectations depend 100% on the person to whom you report and it can change regularly. Many poeple were inappropriate or immature; managment tolerated this. Restructuring is common and change seems nonsensical. HR has no power and barely any influence. Opportunties are about who you are friends with not what your capabilities are. Individualism is not welcomed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an eye on your middle managment. Some of them are not upholding good values.

    Solid company and management, but run like an investment fund rather than an operating company

    I worked at Teekay full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    One of the most international companies based in Vancouver, BC, with a truly global presence. Smart and driven management, who also seem to care about the well-being of staff. Interesting industry and market leader position within that industry. Great reputation within the industry.

    Cons

    Investor-driven rather than customer driven. Investors are the target customers, and the company is increasingly run like an investment fund rather than an operating company. Very much a banking perspective on business - which makes sense since the company is run by a banker. This is negative, but only really if you would rather be in a strong customer-focused operating environment.

    At / below market pay for Vancouver, but horribly under-paid on an international basis, which is where most of their competition is from. Limited upside for career progression - most younger employees have to leave for advancement, which is too bad since the rest of the company is solid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider how financially-driven you are. It may make sense from an investor standpoint, but is it the right way to run what is still, in essence, an operating company with customers? Look at how you move younger employees through the organization, and how many you've lost along the way to international firms that actually provide competitive pay. Aside from that, keep it up.

    I worked at Teekay full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent employee benefits, good bonus and company pension plan. Fresh fruit weekly and office support staff are very helpful.

    Cons

    Internal employees are not valued as much as externally recruited employees. No commitment to promotion from within. Lacking feedback and progression planning.

    A lot of overtime is expected. Not much work/life balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Departmental heads to review internal employees' potential for growth and promotion within the company.
