    Pros

    - Challenging and diverse work
    - We are a leader among oil patch peers in area of sustainable environmental development (but not for people and health/wellness)
    - Many experienced and intelligent people to work with and learn from

    Cons

    - Compensation is average or below (its openly stated that they aim for 50th percentile)
    - Company maturity level means there are often inconsistent ways that work gets done or people get treated.
    - Sr Leaders set way too many goals and top priorities, so people are left scrambling to do and change too many things at once. We need fewer and clearer goals. We are like a conflicted teenager wanting it all now, but don't yet have the skills and experience to do it all just yet. Maturing takes some time.
    - It’s a "who you know" organization and work or new opportunities get done thru connections, not processes.
    - Limited options for alternative work arrangements or support for employee wellness. e.g. you can't be a part-time employee (although backroom deals are 'arranged'), there's limited support for remote work from home, reactive (vs proactive) employee wellness, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The drive to Operational Excellence is a journey and we won't arrive tomorrow. Lets set fewer and simpler goals and priorities because people are overwhelmed with the desire to change everything "now".

    Pros

    Job security, if your looking for a job with tons of security due to the union and the strong postion of the company than this is your place.

    Cons

    Being a union structure it slow to progress as every promotion is seniority based. If you want to climb the ranks fast this is not your place. Also had forced Overtime that was mandatory to work which made the work/life balance score poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be a little more visionary and break the division between Management and the union.
