    I have been working at Canadian Natural full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I started as a Co-op student and before completing the 8 months term I was hired.
    The company offeres lots of opportunity to grow, good salary, Calgary office is well located and good benefits (stock)
    My manager is flexible with vacation or personal time off.

    Cons

    Sometimes its a little slow. Not too easy to climb the ladder as it is in smaller companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better planning to make sure that everybody in the team has enough work to do and responsibility.

    I have been working at Canadian Natural as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to gain insight and knowledge of the oil and gas industry. People are friendly and helpful. You will be given real responsibilities and projects that will impact directly the workings of the plant. Hence, it is a very good learning experience.

    Cons

    Long work hours (6:30am-4:30pm). Lack of an established program in place to develop students into knowledgeable engineers.
