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.

    I have been working at Vermilion Energy full-time

    Pros

    Salary and benefits. Company has a Philanthropic bent.

    Cons

    Difficult if female. All operations women (outside of HR) with any authority demoted. Difficult if non-engineer. All non-engineer staff with any authority demoted in favour of engineers, some with less than 6 months at company. President is American and brings the USA litigious approach. Core company values are a myth if President perceives interference with his agenda. Philanderer and favors American friends. HR group is massive reflecting on number of HR related tracking transactions and corporate staff numbers. HR members are feared due to executive level influence. HR business partners will not hesitate at going above supervisory head to achieve HR agenda. Very political, very camped (guarded) departmental environment. Attempting to affect change where it is desperately needed can be an exercise in international career threatening relations.

    Advice to Management

    Consider being equal opportunity from a professional/functional/gender perspective. Layoff some HR staff. Canadian leadership. De-camp: departmentally working with each other.
