Probably one of the better managed companies
Shift Engineer & Control Room Operator (Former Employee) – Alberta and NWT, Canada – 15 March 2016
The organization ain't perfect but it is pretty darn good.
They a a little overboard with the documentation process but that's the world we live in these days.
I did get to learn more and experience more opportunities than most did, as I was willing to move geographically as well as take on different responsibilities. This helped build a great resume' for myself.
Employee development and training varies due to the fact that any person that delivers training to a newbie will have their own level of quality job done. But still they do a better than average job at this as most everything has a procedure and training documentation is comprehensive and detailed. This is really important stuff.
Safety is good. The one thing that causes variation in that is each employee and how well the foreman or plant superintendent has a handle on how to deliver it and to support it. That's the case anywhere in the world you go. They are setup well to compel a safety mindset.
Quality of work life is good and for long stretches, has been fabulous.
Annual bonuses are belittling and badly administered. I expect the administration of a rewards system is always subject to politics and the abilities of the person managing it. That's a universal theme throughout the corporate world.
These are just minor picks. Considering all the others out there making Oil & Gas,___ they do a pretty good job. Better than most.
Good training, Good safety, Good employee developement, Good benfits and pension programs, Extensive opportunities for advancement and to travel the world if one has a mind to do so.
Heavy on the paper work
