I would give it 0 stars if I could
Safety Advisor Coker Rebuild (Former Employee) –  Fort McMurray, AB12 December 2013
Where to begin.

They have no safety culture. They hire inexperienced safety people with no experience in the oil sands or construction and they are bullied and ignored by management that couldn't care less about safety. Their philosophy is get it done as quickly and as cheaply as you can. Safety should be seen and not heard. Incidents are covered up or blame shifted to the workers instead of management who creates the problems to begin with.

Crane topples, major shutdown due to explosion and fire, and at least 3 people dead and at least 53 charges from OH&S. Their record speaks for itself and it's the worst in the Alberta oil sands.

The camp is horrible. Food is worse than the worst high school cafeteria you've ever eaten at. Rooms smell like urine. They bring in unqualified migrant and foreign workers who are cheap, easily exploited and sent packing if they complain about the abuse.

Avoid at all costs...
Pros
Great place to work if you don't care about your own personal safety
Cons
Everything.

Overall company is great, Management is immature
Cost Perfomance Analyst (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB3 January 2018
Overall the company is great, salary, benefits, stock plan - However some sections of certain departments need to be completely overhauled, management skill set is lacking and immature, overall bureaucracy is exhausting and there is far too much red tape. praise is given to those who possess no skills and have the gift of the gab, talking with no action has more value than tangible skills and results.
if you can tolerate being a mindless drone, cubicle dweller and can talk a huge political fancy game, you will fit right in. if you have skills and can give results that benefit the over balance sheet, you will sink.
