Analyst (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB30 September 2017
It would be fair to say that there are far too many people in supervisory positions with no experience in supervising people. There is no denying their ability to meet and exceed expectations and get the work done. It is the soft skills in dealing with people, team members, etc that is sorely lacking not only in my experience but in others as well.
Pros
dynamic work environment
Cons
poor supervision

No one talks to anyone anymore. Not a good place to work as everybody is always getting laid off and jobs are not staying in Canada but are being shipped to the states and outsourced overseas.
Cons
Long hours, benefit cutbacks

Safety Problems.
Safety Advisor (Former Employee) –  Saskatchewan16 January 2017
Can be a dangerouse place as there is no accountability and a general lack of mining knowledge as far as safety and safe work practices. Management will guard inconsistancies in the work place as not to make waves within the working population.
Pros
Money
Cons
Safety
