    I have been working at Vermilion Energy full-time

    Pros

    Salary and benefits. Company has a Philanthropic bent.

    Cons

    Difficult if female. All operations women (outside of HR) with any authority demoted. Difficult if non-engineer. All non-engineer staff with any authority demoted in favour of engineers, some with less than 6 months at company. President is American and brings the USA litigious approach. Core company values are a myth if President perceives interference with his agenda. Philanderer and favors American friends. HR group is massive reflecting on number of HR related tracking transactions and corporate staff numbers. HR members are feared due to executive level influence. HR business partners will not hesitate at going above supervisory head to achieve HR agenda. Very political, very camped (guarded) departmental environment. Attempting to affect change where it is desperately needed can be an exercise in international career threatening relations.

    Advice to Management

    Consider being equal opportunity from a professional/functional/gender perspective. Layoff some HR staff. Canadian leadership. De-camp: departmentally working with each other.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Vermilion Energy (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in November 2008.

    Interview

    Very thorough and lengthy. I don't think any of the interview process was redundant; however, the hiring process took too long. If I hadn't had my heart set on working there, I likely would have accepted another one of the offers I had.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It was a great offer. I accepted without negotiation.
