    Pros

    Imperial Oil may be one of the best company to start your career if you want to work in the petroleum industry. First of all, it offers you a lot of opportunities to learn in a number of different aspects. It provides you various trainings. You feel that you are fully trusted about your knowledge by other senior employees.

    Cons

    There is not really challenging tasks. If you are familiar with working in fast-paced laboratory environment already, you would not find any difficulty getting tasks done in a timely manner (According to my experience). Furthermore, IT service is really slow-paced since ExxonMobil took over most part of IOL. Other than that, I cannot find any problems to work for this company
