    I worked at Encana full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work hours 9/80 is great. Some employees are amazing - positive and hardworking.

    Cons

    Too many to list but be cautious about working in Land or Land Administration - leadership is poor. There is no support or positive communication resembling anything real.

    I have been working at Encana full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers, minus most management, are a pleasure to work with

    Cons

    Unqualified management, promotes on the basis of wining points not ability, brown nosing vs. talent, etc. A place where career dreams die under the weight of vision-less leadership

    I worked at Encana full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Generous time off and benefits offered

    Cons

    The organization has a complete lack of understanding of supply chain management. Engineers were pushed into SC roles that did not want to be there which killed morale. It's old about years of service.

    I worked at Encana full-time

    Pros

    Excellent benefits! 9/80 flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Layoffs every couple of years. The new leadership in land - the VP has a problem with micromanaging (they have a history of it at another place of employment - small industry.) Good managers and supervisors aren't able to effectively perform their roles anymore. The culture in land changed before our eyes overnight once the old VP retired and they brought in the new VP. Very cliquish employees.

  10. "Solid Company"

    4.0
    Former Employee - Facilities Engineer in Denver, CO

    I worked at Encana full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Results-focused environment; teamwork is prioritized by everyone; given ample room to grow and take on challenges

    Cons

    Limited focus on non-core assets, can be detrimental to work if not one of those teams; sometimes there would be communication disconnects between the field and main offices
