    Former Employee - Quality Engineer in Aberdeen, Scotland

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Petrofac full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The access to growth and development was great, the HR team were not proactive in helping you find training other than issuing a brochure which was nice but would have been good to have a team help support this. A lot of autonomy was provided to the role which was great in most cases.

    Cons

    HR team at the time was not helpful and a lot had to be completed with Managers and Senior Managers fighting the system. A little old school in terms or hierarchy remains, admin team were also a little too entitles often forgetting how critical their roles are to the success of supporting other teams and avoiding the need to navigate politics.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that support teams are supporting the critical areas of the business that they were designed to support and not focusing on self promotion.
