    I have been working at Husky Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A company with good market standing and a diverse energy portfolio. Many of the assets are depleting, but several good ones coming on line.

    Cons

    The company and clients are enjoyable. I like companies, but only disengage when asked to act out dishonorably, which is what the IS group is about. I see little honesty in the leadership, who fabricate ways to spin or make up stories to build a good face. There is little accountability and a lot of finger pointing. The honorable approach is to accept blame and move on as a team. The management team does not bring people along, but drags them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are your power. The IS management have a long way to go in terms of determining how to get people efficient and productive. Stop playing power games and do what is right to improve company results. All that is happening is a big move on draining productivity... Thousands spent at offsites that yield no substantial follow-up... Management approaches of the 80's have become the norm. There are new approaches now.

    Current Employee - Tax Consultant in Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I have been working at Husky Energy as a contractor for more than 5 years

    Pros

    As a mature worker no one is looking over my shoulder hounding me about something that needs to be done. I have hard deadlines that need to be met and I am given the latitude to meet those deadlines in the way I see fit to get the work done in a timely manner

    Cons

    I have not experienced any cons in this position. All my interactions with permanent staff are positive and cooperative. The work is within the scope of my experience and just requires time to work on the problems and does not require any formal upgrading of my skills. As worker in his 44th year of working I am able to work independently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have no advice for management, I am satisfied with the work environment and the callaboration from my fellow workers.
