    I worked at Husky Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, great benefits. Solid focus on continuous improvement. Highly ethical and transparent.

    Cons

    Time lines for delivery can be tight. High priority placed on quality work product from employees, but systems and sometime process can be onerous.
    A lot of transition between teams, but maybe that was just indicative of the recent market down turn.

    Advice to Management

    Require leads and managers to report on feedback from employees in their group in addition to quantitative indicators.
