Very political - be prepared for red tape (and lots of it)

Manager (Former Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

ProsLots of opportunities for skilled/experienced professionals.
Many sites/locations to choose from.

ConsHigh turnover in organization is one reason for lots of opportunities.
Compensation is ok.
Union environment for non-management and exempt staff can be exhausting at time (both time wise and mentally, since many union employees only does the bare minimum to make sure they get a pay check).
Some decisions may be politically based rather than what is the right thing to do.

Advice to Senior ManagementLet decisions and leadership be driven by skill set and experience, not by the social hierarchy.
For example: doctors are skilled at delivering clinical care, and often most are not good leaders.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
