    Pros

    Decent salary, great HR Department, good health benefits. Good 401K matching (has changed recently)

    Cons

    Upper management has taken a drastic turn for the worse in the last 8 months. One of the Regional Managers is an idiot. Unfortunately, he has the ear of the CFO and his tag along son. There were 2 good Vice Presidents, 1 has already left the building and the other is on his way out. Company values and employee moral is at an all time low.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company before you completely ruin it. Stop listening to bad advice, it is not productive in this downturn. Loyalty to employees is long gone from the company's mission statement. The damage has already been done and employees are starting to exit the company.

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, flex hours, decent pay, generous 401K plan, employee insurance paid.

    Cons

    Clique mentality, not much direction, little communication to employees, no advancement of office employees. It's the oil business so there are ups and downs. The company had no layoffs until this year but that changed.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate.

    Pros

    The management in Canada are awesome people. The pay is fair (when there's work). The benefits are great (RRSP contribution matching). The work is interesting and demanding.

    Cons

    Long hours (I'm ok with it, but others may find it taxing). Little room for employee growth. Raises are not standardized (let alone cost of living raises). You can work for years and not see a single raise unless favored by management. Little to no upward momentum within the company. When it's slow, the salary alone can't pay your bills. And you're on call, so getting another job isn't viable.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize raises. Having a plan is fine, but put it in action. How does someone not get any form of raise in over a year? And it has been asked for multiple times! When employees want to grow within the company, make it happen. I see some of the people who have been here the longest (and have the worst adittudes and work-practices) favored by management while employees who want to develop consistently (but don't complain constantly) get left behind. If a manager doesn't really love an employee, they're all but ignored when it comes to growth. Put more of the control for development in the hands of the employee (I'm not talking about e-learning, which is all but ignored by management). Let employees sign THEMSELVES up for courses they are qualified for, and then ACTUALLY HAVE THE CLASS HAPPEN. I have been signed up for the same course for over a year. Each time, it is cancelled.
