I worked at Cenovus as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

I entered the environment with much hope, expectation, and excitement. The culture at first appeared to be easy going, and the atmosphere was friendly...on the surface. People were cordial and helpful.

Cons

As a contractor I was let go for asking a question to which they thought I should know the answer. I felt as though there was a negative undercurrent in the office that caused much fear in the staff.

Very low tolerance of people, and poorly managed department. Projects never seemed to have an end in sight, and leadership was lacking. Perhaps this is the reason why so many people in IT are leaving, or have left.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value the people who have offered their services to Cenovus. Judge less through credentialism, and more through the person's abilities and experience.

    Pros

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

    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
