I have been working at Cenovus

Pros

Vacation policy and 1st and 3rd Fridays off
Involved in some very interesting projects
One of the largest Producers which makes them the big player

Cons

No room for advancement in the company - too many older people (because of the great vacation policy) that will not leave.
Too many people are put into positions that they have no business being in (not enough knowledge or oil background). As a result, senior people are expected to do far too much training because so many people are in positions they should be in.
Senior management and executive team is mostly clueless with regard to the oil industry (mostly ex-gas people from EnCana with no idea about oil.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Newflash: You are now an Oil company! Stop taking incompetent gas people and putting them into oil jobs that require experience and knowledge.
