Positive Outlook

I worked at Imperial Oil as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Good pay, many benefits such as travel, training, etc. Good safety culture (can be annoying but stil good)

Cons

Very rigid organizational structure. Conservative, obsessed with "company assets" e.g. don't use a company desk to do your own stuff during lunch time. And, they are one of the worst in the world environmentally, not just by the nature of their industry but they go for compliance and not beyond.

Advice to Management

This is the 21st Century: -Rethink how rigid everything is for employees -Change name to Imperial Renewables and get going with some alternative energy (natural gas doesn't count)

    I worked at Imperial Oil full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Solid training. Lots of good people and there is a generous pension plan if you plan to stay with the company for many years.

    Cons

    The office space changed recently to that of cubicles. There should be more profit sharing and bonuses like other oil and gas companies.
