      Dishonest, unfair, disrespectful management team + company integrity

      Pros

      fellow team members were awesome, stuck together, dedicated - met unrealistic deadlines great teamwork, decent pay

      Cons

      Aside from Kentz breaking the Labour Laws by bringing in unqualified irishmen to supervise the team of Canadians, but are not capable to fulfill their role. The biggest disappointment would be when commissioning started, the electricians that championed the project got laid off and the incompetent irishmen left to finish up.

      Interesting work, exposed to many different disciplines in O&G, good colleagues, strong ethics. lots of social events until new management.

      Cons

      Poor senior management, management of change poor when SNC purchased Kentz creating lots of red tape. No social events permitted under SNC such as Christmas party.

      When The old boys are shuffled along

      Pros

      There is very little I can say in support of Kentz, once a strong company it is experiencing what can only be described as a decaying entity.

      Cons

      As SNC Lavalin takes over, the old boys who served for years in Kentz are being shuffled to lesser roles in preparation to the new management. It was clear to me that a couple of these "Old boys" were extremely disgruntled and made it clear that "they hoped SNC would fail". It was also clear to me that they were doing what they could to assist in that failure.

      Pros

      Great rate of pay, good experience, interesting location (Darwin, NT), great group of work mates, FIFO camp is pretty standard compared industry standard

      Cons

      To put it blunt Kentz couldn't organise a root in a brothel. Being a project that is worth over 30 billion the organisation of works and equipment is horrible, spending most days kicking rocks and trying to look busy. Kentz aren't new to the game but show blatant disregard to workers rights, entitlements and safety. Kentz offer the visaed of a strong safety culture but will always put production first. From my experience with supervisors they are egocentric and inexperienced, I'm sure there's a few good ones out there but not in my case. 4&1 roster is becoming very outdated but Kentz seem to support its continuation

      Pros

      It is a good company to work for. Doing fly in fly out with kentz is a good thing, the money is good also.

      Cons

      Sometimes is a little bit hard because some of the site rules look like they don't make sense and you think they are there only to make your life harder.
