I have been working at PennWest

Pros

- Very friendly and open atmosphere. Senior Management are very friendly and approachable
- Mid-sized company, but has a very small feel to it
- Nice downtown office! Good location
- Gym inside the building!
- Competitive pay & benefits

Cons

- There doesn't seem to be any international opportunities, company is solely based in Canada
- Might not be easy to transfer from department to department

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Even if PennWest does continue to grow and reach the size of Husky & Talisman and the others..don't lose the atmosphere! Keep hiring summer students

    Pros

    Good people, strong community sense. Becoming more goal driven, which is good. People are given an opportunity to excel, and responsibility is given to those who take initiative.

    Cons

    Organizational structure has been confusing and has changed multiple times. This has been a long process, and seems to be improving with each month.
