    Former Employee - Group Lead in Denver, CO

    I worked at Encana full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Great benefits, especially the vacation
    - Team work as a whole was very good when people welcomed you in but... see cons for the other side
    - Training opportunities are some of the best I have seen in companies
    - Management changes got rid of a lot of issues still some room for major changes but Doug Suttles is the best thing that happened to the upper management
    - Always willing to try new things
    - Encourage creativity, stretch and reach for the best

    Cons

    - Autonomous area operations need to be removed, the strategy of 'run your own company' in each location led to so many differences that it was even difficult to know the safety rules at each area and sometimes within each area
    - Still room for improvement in the very upper ranks but what company doesn't leave something to be desired
    - Laid off but was treated right and understand the situation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put responsibility for safety in the workers hands, you have good safety but it could be great safety with better programs such as Safe Start that put safety in the workers hands and not some corporate program with paperwork and processes to make safety records & reports look good. The cuts of existing VPs didn't go far enough. Previous ties to the old rank and file leave a lot of problem spots in the organization causing serious pain for those in the field trying to do the right things.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Encana.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was actually very enjoyable. I made contact at a university career fair. I was lucky enough to be called back for a pre-interview dinner and then the interview the next day. Dinner was awesome and as you know, an interview in itself. The dinner made the interview a lot more enjoyable and they smiled a lot. I joked a lot and still managed to maintain a professional approach. They contacted me about two days after my interview. And told me I got the job! I am so excited!!
