Been over 6 years in this company. The company is good for early development. Other than that, majority of career growth options and promotions are meant for Arabs. Others may need twice the experience and hopefully some manager stepping out for you to get that career growth if you are lucky. Major Wasta system here.
Good for early development
Not much career growth or promotions unless you are an Arab national
In my time I worked on shore at Lagon Tormore plant in Shetland and I advanced In a wealth of knowledge also the shift pattern suited my life style .A very desirable company to work for I would go back any time if the opportunity arose.
All accommodation, meals, washing all there
No cons, you know the shift pattern from the outset
Was recruited by Petrofac in 2009. Recruitment process was very well managed determining me to accept the job. Had a very good two and a half years with Petrofac which I found being an open, multicultural, effective , agile, fair and very well managed organization. Had support from the very top.
good company culture
Anytime best but you have to proved yourself by achieving more targets in less time. Helpful staff and co operative seniors in piping.Best for those who have a ability to achieve targets within time limit and have to adjust work presure.
No man-hours issue
The best company I have worked with. A company that rewards you for hard and sincere work. A company that supports you for career building. A company that gives you free hand to work and demonstrate your skills and suitably reward for those who do. Very good procedures and systems of working.
Picnics, group events, annual partying, career building
Long hours, stressful at times

I was worked with PETROFAC for three projects Turkmenistan , Qatar , and Kuwait for emergency job. Overall was very nice employment and also good management. But since few years I observed that they offer very poor rate of salaries.. as compare with previous years. Superiors are very nice understand and good behavior with employees. Team work was excellent. I had worked with many clients in GCC but no one provide superb quality of food better than Petrofac. Also i appreciate about accommodation facilities was excellent. I was enjoying my worked days with happiness in Petrofac. Thanks for Administration of Petrofac.
Excellent food benefits
Very good caretaker
Freedom of work, enrichment of skills, extremely human touch and policies reflecting compassionate approach. All these resulted in rapid growth while ensuring customer delight. Multi cultural, mulgi national culture very well accommodated and made homogeneous. In nut shell, it was a memorable experience, worth sharing with professional circle. The best organization ever worked
Compassionate leave-when my mother expired, no leave was adjusted, willingness to pay travel cost
Company is devided into gangs based on nationality dominating each function. If you are not one of these your entry or lifetime inside will not be stable. Also even if you work as manager but your grade is not manager grade they will not give you an experience certificate based on your actual work. Better to ask for hardship allownces than facility like hotel if you are promoted for deputy in other location because that will be reflected to your end of service in case of leaving the company.
Salary is not increasing despite the assigned responsibilities
I have been in several world class companies in my life such as ExxonMobil, Petronas, Oman Gas. I found that Petrofac quite encouraging company. For short term employment this company is the second from none. cultures from different countries come together to build a team strength. Needless to say this company is a good company to work with
JOB Security and growth is question mark, particularly in Supply Chain Management. Person based instead of Company policy based for career growth and job security. Very good company to work and learn.
Strong Vision; Good leadership ; Well defined job description
NO Job security, Person based, Performance not linked with your job security.
