Industrial Mechanic (Millwright) (Former Employee) – Key Lake, SK – 16 September 2017
Great people, poor management all they do upstairs is protect one another and be dishonest to corporate office on what is actually happening at the site level, if you become one of the upper managements friends, then you will be guaranteed to move up the corporate ladder.
Great Employees, great work, nice camp.
Away from family, below average meals due to cut backs, the union.

I enjoyed working for this top notch employer. The work and camp atmosphere cannot be beat. The company is committed overall safety and training employees to today's standards. A safe and excellent company to work for!

It's all about safety, life/work balance. The benefits are amazing. I enjoyed the way everyone was carried along with the performance of the company and also the performance base bonus was encouraging as well
Architect - Servers and Storage (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 13 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.
Planner (Current Employee) – Mac Arthur River – 29 January 2017
As FOFO mine the camp is great, unfortunately the company is in flux. There salary is average to below average but have great benefits that balance the salary. There is minimal advancement within the company and management has minimal loyalty to its employes.
Lab Technician (Current Employee) – Rabbit Lake, SK – 24 December 2016
camp is walking distance from the mill, people are good to work with with a great safety attitude. the place was put into care and maintenance earlier this year (2016). hardest thing is that most of the workforce was laid off and gets pretty lonely sometimes especially when your 2 week shift is just beginning. keeping the heat going is tough when its -30 out and propane isn't cheap either. A Cameco site should be using uranium generated electricity to power the mines, would be great for Cameco's uranium outlook!
