    I worked at Teck Cominco

    Pros

    Good Pay, not much else.

    Cons

    Management gives promises they cannot follow through. They will work you to death, lack of work and life balance,. They preach safety but do not follow through with it, production is rated higher than safety. Getting a transfer is an act of congress. No real career growth potential.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont be such tools.

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