    Summer Engineering Intern

    Engineer (Former Employee)

    Pros-Good camp amenities considering the remoteness of the location.
    -Week on/Week off. Great schedule for a student. Good atmosphere in camp among Cameco employees.
    -Very good compensation.
    -Great safety culture.

    Cons-A lot of money wasting for a facility that was still under construction! Suggestions of improved processes were lost in the shuffle.
    -Some communication issues with cross-shift. Inefficient staffing process.
    -Felt underutilized, and supervisors didn't have a response. A lot of other staff seemed underutilized, too.
    -A lot of transient staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA lot of money literally "being thrown down a hole" without a lot of understanding of where it's going. Overall satisfaction would be improved if this was fixed.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    challenging, very conservative, lots of generation gap issues, great health plan, and wasteful on water

    Geological Technician (Former Employee)

    ProsI worked in the exploration and mining operations, a sort of front line soldier, and out looking for new deposits. I enjoyed the northern Saskatchewan climate, terrain and especially the traditional people who still live off the land. Majority of the people I worked with understood team ethics and getting along, make the best of the time away from home. I learned about the whole uranium industry and geology with Cameco from the veteran geologists who were willing to share knowledge.

    ConsEgo's, too many Mr. know it all's. Lack of communication skills from both management and employees.
    Big time generation gap issues.
    Wasteful on water use
    Power struggles
    People bringing home issues to workplace.
    Lack of conflict resolution skills.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNew employees would like to feel valued. When people resign from Cameco, like less than a 2 years, should that not be a concern and ask why.
    Workload during the drilling season did not equal compensation very well. Diamond drillers were making more than Cameco employees!?!?
