    I worked at PennWest (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    As things were great in the economy, it was an amazing learning experience to work hand in hand with an amazing Superintendent and great area of people. The benefits were fantastic.

    Cons

    The company could not regain momentum after some poor business spends and choices even after bringing on a new CEO. It was pretty hard to watch many many people get let go as the economy downturned with the price of oil. Basically, to the point of no repair.

    I worked at PennWest full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    My supervisor was great for, he worked very hard to include everyone as part of the group.

    Cons

    It became tough to work here as there were so many layoffs going on in all departments.

    Advice to Management

    Learn something about the people you are laying off. Some people have been in the industry a long time and do other roles if there current role is not longer required.

    I have been working at PennWest full-time

    Pros

    Good people, strong community sense. Becoming more goal driven, which is good. People are given an opportunity to excel, and responsibility is given to those who take initiative.

    Cons

    Organizational structure has been confusing and has changed multiple times. This has been a long process, and seems to be improving with each month.

    Pros

    The senior management team is down to earth and very approachable.
    Penn West provides great training supports for staff wanting to learn

    Cons

    Eventually, it becomes difficult to continue progressing to senior levels without leaving the company. This is probably true for many companies in the industry; a lot of top talent leaves for better positions elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate the corporate strategy in more detail, more often to employees. Be honest and forthright about challenges.
