    I worked at Cameco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Insurance and benefits were good

    Cons

    Low salaries by industry standard. Little opportunity for advancement. Cameco basically trains employees for better jobs somewhere else.

    Advice to Management

    Management views government regulators with open disdain in company meetings. This is highly inappropriate and has led to complications with permitting and mining.
