    I have been working at Cameco full-time

    Pros

    Good reputation in the community. Lots of volunteer opportunities. The benefits are really good. I have a flexible boss so that works well for me. I really like the work I do and there are lots of opportunities for creativity and advancement.

    Cons

    Corporate office and sites are very different cultures. Corporate is a bit stuffy and sites are quite informal. It makes for a strained relationship between the two.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be more consistency from one department or site to the other. Some managers are very strict and some are flexible. It is hard for the people in the strict groups to see how good others have it.

    I worked at Cameco

    Pros

    Benefit package is second to none, compensation is fair/above-industry standards, bonuses are fitted to the job that you perform and your ability to execute tasks. Work-life balance is encouraged.

    Cons

    You are at the whim of the industry in this company. Upper management team does not seem to be all on the same page, which makes for mixed messages making its way to the workplaces.

    Pros

    Big company can keep people employed.

    Cons

    -top heavy; too many chiefs
    -lack of responsibility on part of supervisors.
    -hires contractors instead of permanent employees so stockholders are not affected.
    -bad communication between mine cross shifts
    -constant changing if chiefs brings in inconsistency. Constant change and no establishment of patterns leads to confusion among employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's going to take a lot of work.

    I have been working at Cameco

    Pros

    Many different sites; however, the people are consistently great. Good benefits and competitive compensation. Fantastic community outreach and support.

    Cons

    Because it is such a big company spread across many sites and a large geographic area there is often a lot of "red tape" when pursuing new ideas or ways to improve business operations. That being said it is a fairly typical complaint in the corporate world...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can be disassociated from their employees; some lack leadership and the ability to encourage new ideas that create positive change and growth within their department.
