Work culture at Agrium is of the highest standard. Safety is a priority and is expected from all employees. The hardest part of working at Agrium (Nutrien) is the ever changing situations the company is continually going through. Never seems to be any job safety or calm periods to take a breathe. Other than that the people is what make the company and there are good people working there.

Workplace environment negativity was mostly stoked by management. Monitoring employees and their work stations was constant. Severe micromanagement came from plant manager's office.

In my experience the work culture for many leaders was a policing or intimidation style instead of guiding and coaching the crews to do the job safely and efficiently.

Climbed through the ranks easily. If you work hard you'll be rewarded.
Went from the bottom to maintenance supervisor in 8 years.

Wish I never left.

Working with Agrium is one of the best work place I have ever worked. People good and the environment is pretty welcoming. Got laid off because they moved their office to Loveland CO we were forced to resign.

Once the outsourcing was announced and everyone had been given their "expiry date" it was not a fun place to work. Half the people were zombies waiting for their termination date. The other Half were either disengaged and not trying to help coworkers, or were lowering their performance standards to that of TCS, the company that most IT services were outsourced to.
Pros
In-house yoga classes at lunch, health and wellness facility in Calgary
Cons
employee morale, work ethic, inability to accommodate remote work

Secure and protect the property. I worked as a security officer. We ensured that it was safe for workers on a daily basis. I learned that potash mines are very productive and are a very important part of the food chain.
I worker with all types of trades workers. The hardest part of this job was informing safety personnel that a certain worker was under the influence of alcohol and some workers were fired on the spot.

The most enjoyable part of this job was commuting and being a big part of a company.
Pros
good wage
Cons
cold days

Very productive and results oriented company. Fast paced daily work. Site work was schedule driven with priority on safety & quality.
Both cost & schedule is well managed when work is executed safely with high productivity (quality). Valuable experience on managing a diversified work force, with emphasis on safety & quality. The workplace culture was team work producing results. Management culture was;good planning, pro-active and "no surprises". Challenges were forecast with appropriate corrective plans, "fire drills" were avoided. The hardest part of the job was building a grassroots plant in an operating plant environment. All the hard work and long hours did provide superior results: no body got hurt, the new plant met production objectives and people gained experience & success. The most enjoyable part for me as Project Director was that I kept everyone safe and saw people grow in their careers.
Pros
Good salary & benefits, very fair management
Cons
Limited career opportunity especially with the new merger with Potash Corp.

It would be fair to say that there are far too many people in supervisory positions with no experience in supervising people. There is no denying their ability to meet and exceed expectations and get the work done. It is the soft skills in dealing with people, team members, etc that is sorely lacking not only in my experience but in others as well.
Pros
dynamic work environment
Cons
poor supervision

No one talks to anyone anymore. Not a good place to work as everybody is always getting laid off and jobs are not staying in Canada but are being shipped to the states and outsourced overseas.
Cons
Long hours, benefit cutbacks
