Cenovus was a great company to work for when times were good..... But that's where it ends.
The dip in oil prices brought with it a highly political environment where only the ones in the good old boys club would survive the cuts.
Moral when I left the company was at an all time low. Nobody cared about their job performance, because it didn't seem to matter how good of a job you did there was never any room or money for advancement or reward.
I would not recommend anybody work for Cenovus. You are only a number that can come and go with the ebb and flow of the volatile heavy oil prices.
Decent base salary, nice camps on remote site.
Fear and intimidation tactics used as motivativational techniques by many managers.
Very relaxed environment but lately a lot of change

- days are usually a bit slower since it is a larger corporation, everything needs to be approved and follow a process - there are always a lot of meetings, hard to get anything done if you're super busy - workplace culture is great, everyone is pretty friendly, on the quiet side - spread out in many different buildings, so being in IT, a lot of walking to different areas of the city to attend meetings - lately a lot of change so not much has been getting done, org changes every few months it seems!
