I worked at PennWest full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Most co-workers are friendly and helpful, contributing to a fun working atmosphere most of the time. Salaries are comparable to the industry norm.

Cons

Very disfunctional management where the left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing.
Many great employees have either been fired or quit do to unfair management practices. I would not recommend working for this company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You can't keep chasing the good employees away if you want to survive. PennWest's image isn't a good as you think.

    I worked at PennWest full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The senior management team is down to earth and very approachable.
    Penn West provides great training supports for staff wanting to learn

    Cons

    Eventually, it becomes difficult to continue progressing to senior levels without leaving the company. This is probably true for many companies in the industry; a lot of top talent leaves for better positions elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate the corporate strategy in more detail, more often to employees. Be honest and forthright about challenges.
