Great place to start your career

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

ProsPenn West highly values it's Summer Students and allows them to contribute on meaningful projects. I've worked in two different departments and they each have a positive attitude towards students. The company gives first preference to those that have previously worked for Penn West. The culture is great. Managers are laid back and allow employees to solve problems on their own. Most employees (senior of junior) are approachable if students have questions. Everyone is happy to work here.

Other great things:
- Gym in the building
- Social club
- Great office location
- Competitive pay
- 4 day weekends in the summer. Field trips, lunch and learns, etc.

ConsSome companies in Calgary have Fridays off in the summer or every other Friday off. Penn West does not offer this. Over the last several years, the company has grown exponentially and the culture is transforming a little as well. The company has less of a small company feel than it did in the past. Can't hold this against them too much since major growth for the company leads to more work for employees.

The stock price has gone down significantly in the last 12-18 months.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep valuing summer students. Expand the GRP program to other departments. Overall, Penn West is a great place to work as a student.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
