I worked at Cenovus as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

I entered the environment with much hope, expectation, and excitement. The culture at first appeared to be easy going, and the atmosphere was friendly...on the surface. People were cordial and helpful.

Cons

As a contractor I was let go for asking a question to which they thought I should know the answer. I felt as though there was a negative undercurrent in the office that caused much fear in the staff.

Very low tolerance of people, and poorly managed department. Projects never seemed to have an end in sight, and leadership was lacking. Perhaps this is the reason why so many people in IT are leaving, or have left.

Advice to Management

Value the people who have offered their services to Cenovus. Judge less through credentialism, and more through the person's abilities and experience.

    Pros

    I love that we truly try to be as environmentally responsible as possible, that we strive to be innovative and that new ideas are heard and implemented. There are lots of growth opportunities within our organization and it is an overall great environment to work in.

    Cons

    We're a large company, so sometimes things can move slowly in terms of approvals.
