Great company to work for.
Mechanical Engineer (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 31, 2019
This was my first engineering job out of college. Working at Worley has been an overall a positive experience. On the positive, really smart and friendly people to work with. Also, extremely flexible work schedule, I was able to work from home 1-2 days a week if I needed to. On the negative, most of my task were administrative/busy work. Also, the 100% billable system on projects (no overhead expenses for training new engineers) is not a friend to a new engineer. Why, because in order to get on a project you need experience, but, being a new engineer you don't have any experience, the problem is the client (project) is not going to pay for 2 engineers, a senior engineer, and a graduate engineer to learn on his dime. Because at the end of the day money drives the project. Yes safety is first but I would say they run parallel.
Flexible hours, good starting pay, knowledgeable workforce
No mentoring for new engineers, No overhead expenses for training, being 100% billable on a project
