Treatment of Contractors is Horrible!!
Supply Chain Major Projects (Former Employee), Calgary , ABJune 5, 2015
Pros: Pay is good
Cons: Stressful working conditions!
New Supply Chain Management does not have a clue about business needs or roles within their BU. Although they talk the team approach to work, they foster a culture of pitting employees against each other. The management says that he wants a work live balance but then the same day will requests that you come in on your days off.

Because managemet does not understand the business, they do not give clear direction. There is no accountability when it come to management, they point fingers at their staff.

The treatment of core employees vs. contractors is like night and day.If you want to work for this company make sure that you get on as a core employee only.

I've heard that other BU's are not as bad as Supply Chain (Major Projects, Eastern), but I'm not sure.

Pros: great work/life balance
Cons: contractor job stability

Middle management has difficulties with being able to make decisions as quickly and efficiently as needed.

I would definitely work for them again.

Contractor - Developer
Developer (Current Employee), Calgary, ABMay 12, 2014
Pros: great environment, great benefits for full time employees (stock options, health/dental, flex fridays, etc.)
Cons: little to no room for serious advancement
First job when I graduated. Great pay as a contractor, easy work, solid management with clearly defined goals. Co-workers are great and a great way to learn if you've never been in the oil and gas sector. However, you are pigeon-holed into the role you have without much room for advancement. Only if you want to get into management is there any room to advance and that takes a long while (as in 10 years in some departments). Therefore, staying a contractor is your best bet if you want to advance in your career (i.e. moving onto another company after you've gained your experience). Still, for those who want security and easy work, staying where they are for at least 5 years to really learn the industry, it's a great place to be.

Pros: decent salary
Cons: management is very out of touch
Very high turn over in certain departments. Contract workers rarely lasted more than 3 months. Very high nepotism. You are nothing but a number. Advancement is non-existant. Polish up that resume and leave as fast you can.
