    Amazing company to work for if you are the right type of candidate

    I have been working at Husky Energy

    Pros

    Encouraged to take training and attend seminars
    Corporate policies in place meant to protect the company and the safety of its employees
    Dedicated and loyal independent contributors in all areas of the company
    Great benefits and perks

    Cons

    IT organization is very poorly managed and subsequently customer and staff satisfaction is very low. Promotion and backing of senior leadership exists if you meet the following criteria:
    1. Must have a previous working relationship, friendship and/or personal relationship with a specific member or members of the senior IT "leadership" team. This insures job security, advancement and way above average industry and most certainly Husky pay rates
    2. Experience is an asset but more importantly, being able to come up with innovative ideas to benefit Husky that a specific member or members of the senior IT "leadership" can adopt and present as their own idea is a requirement
    3. Must be willing to tolerate being subjected to profanity and spoken to like an army cadet in boot camp on a regular basis
    4. Accept that decisions are made based on emotion rather than truth
    5. A psychology degree would be beneficial to better understand the personalities of a specific member or members of the IT "leadership" team and therefore be more in tuned with their unpredictable behaviour
    6. Must feel very comfortable with never disagreeing with a specific member or members of the IT "leadership" team. 7. Opinions are valued and encouraged unless they are not aligned with a specific member or members of the IT "leadership" team
    8. Must be able to put managers agenda ahead of any personal goals and objectives
    9. Must be able to collaborate with peers, develop strong working relationships and be willing to share information gained through those relationships with a specific member or members of the IT "leadership" team. Providing information to your manager shared in confidence by a peer or team member is much more beneficial to your career in there IT department than respecting your peer or team member
    10. Having experience in one or more of the following areas would be an asset; used car sales, life insurance sales, telephone marketing

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Husky corporate leadership should pay attention to what the workers are saying and determine if the IT leadership is really representative of what Husky stands for.

    I have been working at Husky Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company values are well defined (sadly not followed by IS/IT management). Average compensation if you are friends with the management team. Hear that the office culture is great outside of IS/IT.

    Cons

    IS management is lost and employee morale is at an all-time low. All-hands meeting held last week so the CIO and directors can blow their own horns about the great job they are doing, sadly that is not the case. Follow-up questions asked by the usual suspects in the audience. Finally they held a party for staff. Must have finally being able to scrape some funds from the budget instead of blowing it all on manager retreats in Banff. One director has decided to write a blog about women in leadership, when it is a well known fact that only women in his inner circle are allowed to become leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The 40th floor has to pen their eyes and get rid of this group of IS Leadership.
