    Former Employee - Finance in Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I worked at NOVA Chemicals full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are good.
    Recognition of career/life balance.
    Offices/work facilities are decent.

    Cons

    Salaries are aimed at industry 50 percentile, by policy, and they'll aim low to make sure they don't exceed that point.
    Limited opportunities for career advancement.
    Senior management usually hired externally.
    Limited external or internal training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Act like the company is in the industry for the long haul. Provide some sort of advancement opportunities for employees beyond job families. Employees might be the largest controllable expense but they are what can make the company great over the long haul.
