"Cold, unfriendly, inflexible, nitpicky"

Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO

Pros

Location and compensation were good

Cons

Hired as a Project Manager, main responsibility were to fill out paperwork for their PSO. Nitpicked on inconsequential details while they miss major innovation opportunities. Contractors are disposable (treated like toilet paper). Employees act superior and are exclusive and generally mediocre. Hardly ever heard a friendly conversation between people or laughter.

Advice to Management

Spend a little less time in Lean, Gartner and PSO and spend a little more time on people, innovation and projects.

    Pros

    By far the best reason to work at Encana are the benefits. As a Canada-based company, there is a greater emphasis on work-life balance.

    Cons

    Encana moves its employees around allot within the company under the guise of "business need". I believe if the company were better managed these needs would resolve on their own.

    Advice to Management

    There are allot of managers with unhappy employees. Senior management would do well to listen to employees and not be afraid to make big changes.

    Pros

    *work and life balance
    *opportunities for growth
    *family-oriented
    *parking supplemented or free bus pass

    Cons

    *communication deficiencies between employees and management
    *bureaucracy (large company = red tape)
    *generic, down-graded job titles (all engineers are engineers, all administrative professionals are administrative assistants -- regardless of experience, education and previous titles -- this can be rough on your resume) leaves some of us feeling like our backgrounds are not known and therefore of no value to the team/company
