    Teck is a great company overall. CESL, one of its technology divisions is not a great long term place to work.

    I worked at Teck Cominco

    Pros

    The people in the company are relatively easy to work with and reasonable.

    Cons

    No training, No expectations, No one to tell you how things are done. Have to figure everything out by yourself. No recognition of good work, but anything bad is on your permanent record.
