I have been working at Vermilion Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The company is very involved in the communities they operate in and try to do more than just throw money at a problem. The compensation is excellent, the reputation is top-notch, management is very professional and methodical. Although very conservative, there is little threat of losing your job so long as you contribute accordingly. I loved going to work every day.

Cons

Largely due to the structure of the long-term incentives (and the significant value of it), it is rare that people leave the company. Because they grow very carefully and slowly, there is not much opportunity to be promoted or move between groups.
Along with the significant compensation is an unwritten expectation of 'getting the job done'. That often encompasses a substantial amount of overtime during some periods. Although tiresome, I did not feel as though this was too much to ask in the grand scheme of things. Again, this is a great company. Definitely more pros than cons.

Advice to Management

Keep up the fantastic job! I truly loved working for Vermilion.

    I worked at Vermilion Energy as a contractor

    Pros

    Oil and Gas industry perks with small company vibe.
    Competitive salary, great people, lots of opportunity to work in other regions of the world.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of that some departments have a lot of stress to finish financial reporting, might be understaffed ?

    I have been working at Vermilion Energy full-time

    Pros

    Smart and engaged colleagues and a fast paced, at times rewarding, workplace.

    Cons

    Increasingly poor treatment of employees, to the point of deceitful. Management micromanages while all others are not given authority or decision making responsibilities. Work life balance is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    To be the best oil and gas company in the world begins and ends with its employees. Try treating them as people as opposed to a dollar figure.
