    I worked at Cenovus as an intern (less than a year)


    Cenovus is one of the best run companies I have worked at. They have a great work culture, interesting work for chemical or mechanical engineers, and a commitment to helping their employees. If I had chosen to go down the path of one of those disciplines, I would definitely have applied for a full time job.


    The biggest con for me, as I decided to look more at finance positions, was that Cenovus does not have a significant focus on finance roles for students.
