Engineering Manager, Rod Lift Systems (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 September 2017
Do not appreciate independant thinking and especially having an opinion different from "the boss". This is probably just the "oil & gas division though as it is new and has leadership from mega companies across the industry with very little of its own identity yet.
Pros
Good severance package
Cons
Poor executive management. No flexibility in policies and processes.

Sr. Accounting Operations Manager (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 February 2017
Flexible day and multi function exposure along with the opportunity to manage the teams and work with the management, very well diversified culture.


The hardest part is to work with shared services that they have a habit of pushing the things back, escalation matrix to be followed in order to make them work. Complex activities are done by junior people and issues piled up at shared services.
Pros
opportunity to learn more in short period of time
Cons
long hours

Political and number type of employees
Spooler Bender Technician (Former Employee) –  Nisku, AB25 January 2017
After having to wait all morning for a phone call to go at work you usually get the call by 1 pm to be ready to leave shop by 3pm after loading equipments on truck and trailer and had to drive for 12hrs to destination to realize that there was no communication between dispatch and the company man to let him/her know that i already been up for 20hrs and by law needed 8hrs of duty before starting work again. In busy time its exhausting and tiring to work for a company that says that it cares about its employees and pushes them to work illegal hours to fit the needs of others.
I have learned after 3 years and multi national company don't cares about there employees and just care about there own money.
Our management wasn't the best and honest meaning that they lied to us from hiring till layoff. Hiding signed documents to fit the company better and hiding the fact they have made a mistake so they looked good to higher ops.
Neither to say that most people working were actually really good people.
The hardest part of the job was the unknown of the call for a job and prevented me to book or prepare a vacation for the family.
The best part of this job was that i had to travel a lot across the provinces and meeting lots of new people and seeing different things.
Pros
easy job to do
Cons
waiting on phone call

Great company but lacking knowledge in the Oil & Gas Industry
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Swift Current, Sask.27 August 2015
Day to day operations with a lot of webex meetings and a lack of focus on the business and industry. I learned that a large company needs to work with the field staff - who have a better perspective on the market place in their area and a better understanding of customer needs. I found that in a huge company there is more focus on numbers than on strategy on how to achieve greater numbers. Management performance was almost inexistent and only contacted you when they needed an update on financials. I had a great team of co-workers who went above and beyond to help build our success. The hardest part of the job was to watch a new company come and take over and dismantle everything and everyone who made our previous company a success. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting and meeting new people and building a successful business.
Pros
Great retirement package and benefits
Cons
Being acknowledged as basically a number rather than a person

Field Engineer - Bently Nevada
Field Engineer (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB21 August 2014
Bently Nevada offers a very relaxed work environment with almost no penalties for compromising safety or quality. On the flip side, there are virtually no goals other than show up and complete each project.

Company vehicles range from luxury sedans to pickup trucks, offering a variety of choices for personal use. Management is relaxed -I only spoke with him once or twice a year.

Expect to work only 8 months of the year and for 60-80hr/week on average. This overtime is necessary because the salaries are pretty low, even in oil-rich territories, making it perfect for new grads or 25-35 singletons. A bigger downside is the lack of enthusiasm and togetherness. Its hard to believe that anyone enjoys the workplace by the complacent attitudes seen across the business.

Overall, 8/10. The job security being the crown jewel of this opportunity.
Pros
Vehicle selection, management-style, Travel
Cons
Low base-pay, 3-4 months of inactivity, no culture
