    Pros

    Good career development. Decent pay and benefit.

    Two headed bird with strong Hutchinson Whampoa influence. Weak leadership and poor management. Siloed work environment. A lot of old guys waiting for retirement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The management know what the problem is but lack of drive and solutions to resolve the problem.

    I have been working at Husky Energy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very good wages and benefits. Diverse company, overall growth of the company seems to be on an upward trend. Husky has no issue putting money into its refineries which equals longevity for the Lima refinery.

    Cons

    New strategies in utlizing operators in several areas throughout the plant leave the new operators unprepared for outages and the ability to feel comfortable in their job. They are solely focused on the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on taking advantage of the ideas of your long time employees since there will be about a 30% leaving in the next 5 to 7 years.

    I have been working at Husky Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They are always looking to expand their products and services in the field of petroleum dispensing products. Development of new products is also key.

    Cons

    I believe there are to many positions that are filled by temporary employees and that these people are sometimes turned over needlessly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Select a member or two from each department on the floor to train to be "lean ninjas", and have those people teach lean manufacturing to hires.

    Former Employee - Operations in Lima, OH

    I worked at Husky Energy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay with lots of overtime. Opportunity to obtain experience in oil/gas industry good. Training met expectations and needs of company.

    Cons

    HIGHLY political. Company plays favorites. Company cannot get rid of poor workers. Company will not get rid of poor management. Do as I say attitude. Company does not value families or personnel time off and has stated "We pay you well enough for this". They participate in mass punishment when an employee does something wrong. Different areas in plant are treated differently with some unfairly. EXTREMLY poor supervisors whom have been in this work enviroment a long time and have not learned. If you want experience in this industry go somewhere else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I stay out of the politics but when so many employees complain about management, take it more serious. The moral is bad and could be great.

    Overall great company, IS Department has a long way to go

    Current Employee - Team Lead
    Current Employee - Team Lead

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

    Pros

    Senior Company Executive thoughtful of the impact that the economy has on its dedicated staff
    Cutbacks where cutbacks make sense

    Cons

    CTO needs more backbone and to think for himself. He is smart but his minions think they are smarter.
    Losing good contractors who are fed up with the poor leadership and of being used as whipping boys. Too many leaders and not enough workers.

    I worked at Husky Energy as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Sadly, no pros working for this department at Husky. The leadership is lost and out of control.

    Cons

    Just like a WWE wrestling matched, everything such as job postings, performance reviews, etc that occur are all fixed. There is no career growth, unless you are friends (wink wink) with the senior management team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The VP of HR and CEO need to open their eyes, before it is too late!
