    I have been working at Imperial Oil

    Pros

    -Great opportunities for growth and career development (they want you there until retirement)
    -Great safety culture- employees are empowered to take action
    -Good compensation, benefits and relocation packages
    -Challenged to continuously improve company processes

    The company has been trying to make major changes to how it is being run in becoming more efficient, modern and open. Evident with the new branding, new campus, and technology (iPhones only!).

    Cons

    -The company is very lean so longer hours are expected - though more opportunities/ responsibilities to learn
    -Lack of culture - not a lot of employee engagement and networking
    -Differences between upstream, downstream and corporate - upstream gets more perks than everyone else
    -Employees are always moved around from city to city, position to position - great for career development but employees need to be even more involved in conversations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Listen to what your employees have to say- allow them provide anonymous feedback
    - Make changes to performance ranking
    - Pay more attention to your interns and new grads and what feedback they have to offer
    - Invest in employee engagement

    Cons

    Some times processes are slow, but that comes hand in hand with a big organization.
