I worked at Cenovus as an intern for less than a year

Pros

They're laid back and no up-tight prudes with no sense of humour at other petroleum companies. they treat their employs well

Cons

there were no cons at all. They went above and beyond to make you feel like you were always an included, respected member of the team

    I have been working at Cenovus as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    I love that we truly try to be as environmentally responsible as possible, that we strive to be innovative and that new ideas are heard and implemented. There are lots of growth opportunities within our organization and it is an overall great environment to work in.

    Cons

    We're a large company, so sometimes things can move slowly in terms of approvals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work!

    I have been working at Cenovus for more than a year

    Pros

    -Friendly culture
    -Not deadline oriented
    -Good work/life balance
    -Light on bureaucracy / excessive paperwork

    Cons

    -Promotions due to tenure rather than merit result in subpar leadership
    -IT attempting to save money by using HP is resulting in poor responsiveness to business demands
    -'Old oil' culture of controlling information flow, opaque management decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -The difference between the image portrayed ("Innovative" and "Young") and the reality is a shock for most new staff, especially the younger generations.
