Job Culture
Reactionary culture which does not practice company core values
Analyst (Former Employee), CubicleAugust 17, 2015
Pros: Coworkers
Cons: Many things
This company has so much potential, but sadly that's all it will ever be. CEDA's core values are displayed throughout, but are practiced by very few employees (corporate at least). Yes, low oil prices have placed a fog over this industry in general, but the cancerous middle management at corporate CEDA (that continues to persevere while the head and toes are chopped off) is the real problem. These people are paid much better than industry average, are content to react to whatever issues arise- and to generalize- do not support their direct reports or the executive group. Speaking of, the current executive group is OK, but the CEO is invisible which is crippling considering the shape of the industry and internal turmoil. CEDA needs a leader that can unite the field and corporate personnel once and for all, while putting a kibosh on all the CYA, finger pointing and excuses that stop this company from being the power house it could be. It's a shame really.

strangely run company
Administration (Former Employee), Calgary, AlbertaMarch 12, 2015
Process' s and organization is definitely lacking.
Management was unapproachable. It is common place for people to pass the buck. Job security is non existent right now as are most oil companies.

SUPERVISOR (Current Employee), Fort McMurrayDecember 27, 2014
Very good company to work for. It offers a lot of growth when you demonstrate good work ethic. It is a challenging job. Constantly problem solving and making decisions very fast. You learn how to manage and deal with high stress environments. You learn how to work alone, safely and efficiently. Everyone is extremely friendly and willing to help you if you have any questions.

Best group of field workers I've ever worked with. But sadly the management sucks
Everyday Worker (Former Employee), Fort McMurraySeptember 9, 2014
Pros: great field employees to work with
Cons: lying managers
The actual workers at Ceda are great guys/gals. Labours and Operators along with the Formens. Unfortunately that's where it stops. The management is horrible, be it at the work place or corp.
They don't listen the the employees. The manage will tell you 1 thing. But do another.
This company could be great to work for. If they cleaned out the upper manage and put the proper people in place.

great place to work with good people.
Branch Administrator (Current Employee), Conklin, ABAugust 19, 2014
Pros: always glad to come to work :)
Cons: can be stressful at times
A normal day start anywhere between 6-7 am till 5 pm. I work with a pressue and vac company. Pricing lems, scanning faxing calling people emailing people, Entering in payrol, ordering PPE or parts for michanics, tracking of trucks, revenue\ introdivision. The hardest part of my job would be having to chance down lems that arnt signed or need PO numbers on them. Most enjoyable part is learning somthing new every day. The people i do work with are good people and love to laugh adn joke around.

Clueless
(Human Resources and Recruitment) (Former Employee), EdmontonMay 28, 2014
Pros: mobile workgroup is a great bunch of guys
Cons: recruitment process
This company advertises a set of core values which it copied off a cereal ox or maybe borrowed from Tony the tiger. No respect for diversity. All talk.

no clue
operator (Current Employee), edmontonAugust 18, 2013
Pros: one or two good supervisors at efs.
Cons: lip service, nothing more.
management has no clue, especially in the dredging and dewatering division.
Have lost tons of potential work due to ops manager and project manager being clueless. A couple of the EFS supervisors are great, make it enjoyable to work there. Co-workers all get along well.
Operations manager has no back bone, can screw up without retribution. Could be a great place to work if they got rid of the two people who are holding this division back.
