Big change from Shell
Regulatory Coordinator - Albian (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB13 August 2017
Our group at Shell was purchased by CNRL. It's been a big change. CNRL is still a small company at heart and runs on a small company culture. Decision making is very centralized and very fast.
Pros
Lean
Cons
Silos

Laboratory Technologist (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB11 August 2017
Things are approved quickly. 7/7 schedule is very common in the industry, so having a work life balance can be tough, but still an amazing opportunity to work here.

As with most of the oil and gas industry high stress and work load
Production Operator (Current Employee) –  Alberta13 July 2017
Management is tough always pushing for more production, more hours, and more commitment from field operations. Morale is low in our area. Individuals being laid off without good reason. Probably looking at the bottom line. Looking to only have yes men/women. Have not been treated this badly in my entire career.
Pros
responsible for company truck, get to move to multiple locations through out the field.
Cons
Automaton, micro managed. Not empowered.

Tough environment and not a fun place
Mine Training (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB16 May 2017
The management treated people as machines and often unfairly. If there was ever a 'corporation' mentality this is the place. The pay was good, but the days were long and torturous.
