    I have been working at Vermilion Energy full-time (more than 3 years)


    The company is very involved in the communities they operate in and try to do more than just throw money at a problem. The compensation is excellent, the reputation is top-notch, management is very professional and methodical. Although very conservative, there is little threat of losing your job so long as you contribute accordingly. I loved going to work every day.


    Largely due to the structure of the long-term incentives (and the significant value of it), it is rare that people leave the company. Because they grow very carefully and slowly, there is not much opportunity to be promoted or move between groups.
    Along with the significant compensation is an unwritten expectation of 'getting the job done'. That often encompasses a substantial amount of overtime during some periods. Although tiresome, I did not feel as though this was too much to ask in the grand scheme of things. Again, this is a great company. Definitely more pros than cons.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Vermilion Energy in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    Very thorough and lengthy. I don't think any of the interview process was redundant; however, the hiring process took too long. If I hadn't had my heart set on working there, I likely would have accepted another one of the offers I had.
