Most teams (the ones with good managers) are open to their people moving around departments within the company as long as the talent is retained within the company.

Commissioning Engineer (Former Employee) –  SharjahDecember 18, 2018
within the company there is a good exposure to the projects, technical and commercial skills.
I learned a lot in engineering, procurement and pre-commissioning.
the work environment is OK and the different cultures are all well respected
the worst thing is the job security, people get laid off for almost no reason and no clear criteria

Cons
zero job security

Civil Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Abu Dhabi, AEDecember 4, 2018
You learned to adapt and work with all the subcontractors. You learned from your work and to adjust yourself to work to all the people on the job. Know the different behavior and culture of all the people you work with even though there was a hardship . Achieved some new method on construction management. But beside of all the work and hardship it will benefit me. the mot enjoyable part is the rest and recreation for paid 21 days.
Pros
good rotation
Cons
hard time with the subcontractors

A very fun productive work place.
CMMS ENGINEER (Former Employee) –  UAENovember 8, 2018
Work begins from 8 A.M to 6 P.M with an hour lunch break.
There's not only graduate programs which trains you right away if you're a graduate engineer right off from college but from Senior most staffs to even management staff they help and train you with day to day roles and responsibility which is highly talked off, which in turn creates a good connection with all employees making them a family.
Its a very high reputed , professional , hardworking yet fun place to work at.
Pros
site visits
Cons
9 hrs of working

PROCESS COMMISSIONING ENGINEER (Current Employee) –  SharjahOctober 26, 2018
It could be the best place to work and it could also be the worst. That depends on so many factors. What I must recognise about Petrofac is that a few opportunities are given to young people into leadership and managerial roles as long as he/she performs day in day out.

Strong Experience but without career progression or advancement
Proposal Specialist (Former Employee) –  Sharjah, UAESeptember 10, 2018
I joined Petrofac under the Graduate Program but there was little to no following up on the huge number of graduates they take every year. The graduates ind themselves lost without any clear career plan within the company, no training or following up later on.
Punch-in / timesheet / clock-in system is outdated and does not help employees to perform well and make them always under stress.
Benefits are average and the annual increments do not reflect the actual inflation rate. At least half of the annual bonus is company shares and you can't sell them before 3 years, if you resign before hand you totally lose these shares.
There is no work-life balance and nobody appreciates this, if you don't overstay your 10 hr/day normal business hours you are considered as a bad employee. Managers do not respect your weekends and normal family commitments.
Pros
Health Insurance, Exposure and eperience
Cons
Timesheet, salaries, work-life blanace
