Overall experience will depend on which department you work in

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

ProsVacation policy- a positive and a negative.
Far too many 55+ people still working there because they get almost half the year off. This leaves little room for advancement.

ConsFar too many people in positions that they shouldn't be in because they are sadly lacking in experience. The company won't hire many experienced people and ends up with poorly trained people lacking knowledge and understanding. It leans too heavily on senior people to train people and it is never ending.

The company could care less about making money or losing money especially in commercial departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementRealize that you are no longer a gas company and stop putting gas people into crude oil positions that they have no business being in.

Far too many people in the company think it is a country club and don't know what hard work is.

Some of senior management are great. Most of them are sadly lacking in crude oil experience and knowledge.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
