Five fatalities in 2014 was an indicator of a culture where what's written and preached is not what's being followed at the working level.
Production Engineer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 May 2017
There were great intentions and written rules that were by-passed or ignored by middle management. Then there is the so-called operational excellence, which is comparable to propaganda in communism regime. Great engineering work and opportunity to learn; however, everything that was done was very subjective and tailored to management expectations. Excellent human resources services, by far the most helpful I have seen. Worst and dangerous part for the company is the yes culture regardless of technical arguments and written values.
