Fast pace developing company with very high standards
HSSE Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 16 November 2016
The people were amazing to work with and always conducted themselves at the highest level of commitment, The pace was horrendously fast and lots of last minute innitiatives and deadlines, this is typical in a startup environment. Another challenge was the need to reduce costs. This was so paramount that it held back progress. It was satisfying to work with dedicated people with common goals and willing to work the challenges together
Stressful, lack of communication from executive team
Senior Administration Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 19 June 2017
This was a stressful environment to work in, due to the language barriers and the differences in culture. I learned that a job is just as much the employees choice as it is the employers. The most enjoyable part of the job was the team atmosphere on the project side.
Pipefitter Foreman (Former Employee) – Ft McKay AB – 28 February 2017
Every day was something new , no real typical work day with this type of job . I learned many new aspects of extraction facility / refinery operations . My management skills with this job improved due to lots of multi tasking on a daily basis . The job safety was the main workplace culture . The hardest part of the job entailed being out in the elements for extended periods . Managing the crew they provided was the best part of the job for me .
A bad combination of Chinese public company and porr local management
Senior Engineer (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 December 2016
This company is the worst combination of poor local management and public Chinese company management. There isn't clarity on company goals. There is' clarity on roles and responsibilities for employees. There is no possibility of career development is you are not Chinese. The local manager that are still working in the company don't have any authority and their priority is to follow direction from the Chinese staff to remain in the company.
Competitive salary and pakage for old employes.
porr management, no possibilities of carrear development, terrible work enviroment
Construction Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 September 2016
I worked in the Mackay area on the SAGD project. The management was great and the area was good to work in. The accomodations were very good and the food was excellent. Hope the economics improve so the other areas of interest for Brion will develop. My immediate co workers are agreat team and I would like to continue to work with them.

Small company & I don't want to identify myself (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 6 April 2016
This is a terrible company. Do not apply for a job here. It claims to be a "real Canadian company" but it is 100% owned by the government of China. Management refuses to listen to employees that know what they are doing - the "exec" is comprised partially of Chinese government employees and the rest of them wouldn't make the C-Suite at any other oil and gas company in Calgary.
Hours were not too bad
Clueless management / literally everything other than the hours
