Pros

-Company offers a lot to its employees - e.g., free food, etc
-Lots to learn - very multidimensional/international oil and gas company
-Focuses a lot on employee development

Cons

-IT is horrible
-Bad share price, was consistently under
-Experience varies from student to student - can be horrible if you end up with a bad department/supervisor. Some particular student roles are boring/you don't learn much, while others are can be very exciting/enjoyable.
-High turnover

Advice to Management

-When making major decisions that affect the whole company and the share price, be more cautious and take time to do your due diligence. Otherwise, the effects can be negative for everybody...

    Pros

    Competitive salaries, diversified company thus many opportunities to move within the firm

    Cons

    Understaffed, non-supportive environment, very high turnover rate as upper management does not know how to retain talent

    Advice to Management

    The people makes the company, not the other way around

    Pros

    Competitive salaries
    Good focus on career and personal development (depending upon who your leader is)
    Values community involvement
    Global company, with potential for international experience (depending upon who your leader is)
    Flexibility in terms of schedule, ie. work from home options, flex days, start late/leave late, start early/leave early (depending upon who your leader is)

    Cons

    Lack of honesty and integrity amongst senior and executive leadership team
    "Act now, think later" approach to decision making
    Lack of equitable treatment when it comes to employees
    Work/Life balance is preached, but never practiced and only encouraged on the surface
    Severe lack of effective processes and procedures - everything is a "bandaid" fix
    Company's core values (safety, honest communication, passion, results, respect, excellence and team work) are talked up, but never practiced
    The more noice you make, the more obnoxious and disrepectful you are, the higher you climb on the ladder

    Advice to Management

    People don't leave companies, they leave leaders. A serious audit of the senior and executive leadership team is required - honest people with heart and integrity who are willing to set the example for the type of behavior that will bring this company out of the weeds.
