Pros

Loyal employees
Good coworkers
Strong management in select areas
This was once an exciting place to work where senior management encouraged and fostered new ideas and methods of working

Cons

Very low morale with no clear attempts by upper management to improved it led to disgruntled employees and overall unhappiness. Employee effort and achievement is rarely rewarded or acknowledged. Extreme favoritism meant some were generously rewarded despite little contribution. Attempts to address items with human resources went nowhere. They are a huge department who are out of touch with the employees and don't seem to have any interest in hearing their opinions. Frequent changes in management makes everyone nervous. SAP has been a joke.

Advice to Management

Start listening to your employees and recognize the ones who deserve it. Everyone understands the economic crunch but rewarding people who are widely regarded as weak contributors when neglecting others just reinforces the favoritism.

    I worked at Maxum Petroleum full-time

    Pros

    Fun industry with lots of perks. Employees care greatly about the work and the customers.

    Cons

    Each operating unit has very limited access to the corporate HQ. It left employees feeling disconnected. Benefits were downgraded -however that could have also been a sign of the times with the economy.

    Advice to Management

    More interaction with the operating units.
