There is a strong team presents with safety in mind. However recent economy changes have people insecure
Maintenance Electrician (Current Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK12 October 2017
The people I work with are very much concerned with seeing everyone return home to their loved ones in one piece. Safety and team work are strong motivators to get the job done. We take pride in our work. However with the recent economy changes. People are more concerned then ever about their future.

highly pressured and dynamic environment
Architect - Servers and Storage (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK13 March 2017
With the volatility in the resources market and especially with uranium, Cameco was always a highly pressured environment with a focus on cost savings and optimization.

Since joining the company, I witnessed two major down-sizing exercises where hundreds of people lost their jobs. While I understand the need to re-organize, it applied a lot of pressure to colleagues to ensure that they performed and achieved the outcomes expected of them.

Setting the stress and pressure aside, the organization was very dynamic and offered great opportunities for staff to accelerate in their roles. I was lucky to be one of those individuals and with hard work, I was always rewarded. I was promoted in a very short period of time.

Cameco was at the forefront of technology which made working in the environment extremely dynamic. Change was implemented quickly and you had to keep up with the direction the organization was taking knowing that it could change at any time.
Pros
Well managed company, great opportunities
Cons
Operates in an instable market sector
