    To keep your skilled employees ensure that they are happy and involved with their work and camp life. Do not be top heavy- less management and more people on the floor.

    I worked at Cameco

    Pros

    Great support and assistance in building capacity. Fantastic and second to none Industrial Aboriginal recruiting policy . Strong community engagement program.

    Cons

    Improving the number of Aboriginal Apprentices and underground miner, even though they are Industry leaders. This would make you untouchable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing. Thank you for all your support in the last 20 years.

    I have been working at Cameco

    Pros

    pay, benefits, leadership, commitment to family and education, commitment to health, safety, environment and people. Initiative in community programs is second to no one

    Cons

    This site is a very hazardous environment to work in. The chemicals on site are probably some of the worst on the planet and not to mention the radiation from the uranium is very high at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen a little more to your employees who are doing the work. Also keep an open mind when it comes to change.
