    Pros

    Good benefits. Fantastic approach from top down to safety, health and environment - paying dividends! Good to see a concerted effort to improve training and development and align business processes amongst divisions

    Cons

    It has been a good company for me - no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep people informed of upcoming changes. The uncertainty around the merger has people concerned. What is going to happen to the good things PotashCorp has been doing?

    Pros

    Very well run company. Employees and safety definitely come first. Laid back environment, but could get very fast paced, very quickly.

    Cons

    IT was under Finance. This may have changed.

    Advice to Management

    IT should be it's own department. Get it out from under Finance.

    I worked at Potashcorp full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Pays well, trains well, offers great opportunity to advance and take classes to further your career.

    Cons

    After watching many rounds of lay offs, I became laid off myself. Being a very dedicated worker that almost never had a call in sick day, always worked overtime when asked, and always took my job with the utmost seriousness, it was horrible to wonder f I would be in the round of layoffs. My coworkers left behind are terrified they will be next. Its a tough position to be in to be laid off right before Christmas. Not only did it make Christmas horrible, but the wait through the holidays for hiring managers to be back to work at other companies that I have applied to, has been excruciating.

    Advice to Management

    job security is important.
