    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Interesting and challnging work. Very professional people work there who are committed to doing a good job. Good compensation practices and excellent benefits. There is a general understanding at the corporate level about the importance of investing in people.

    Cons

    It is a very structured work environment where there seems to be a policy, procedure or process for everything and anything. If you are a creative, self starting individual, this is not the place for you. If you like structure, clear objectives and favor management over leadership - this may be a good place for you to work.

    Advice to Management

    Not all of the intellectual capital in the organization is held at the VP level and above. Actually inspiring people to take the initiative and do work to the best of their ability will likely pay some real dividends.

    Current Employee - Business Analyst in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Fairly good compensation package with flexibility of purchasing more vacations.

    Cons

    Too much office politics between departments. Lack of clear directions from senior managements. Opportunities for promotion or internal transfer are minimal unless you worked for the company for a long time. The demographic of company is mostly made up by baby boomers. Middle management lacks leadership and initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Should promote more training or continue education for people in the mid-thirties to prepare for the baby boomers' retirements. Best to have a re-organization of the middle management level.
