As far as oilfield industrial work goes, Black & McDonald made a decent effort to treat its workers like human beings (this is hard to do on these sites if the client doesn't share that view)

Nothing negative to say about B&M really. They were underbid on a maintenance contract, and lost the contract I was working. Overall, they're good to work for.

Management is very bad in western utilities. Very very bad. The project manager is inexperienced and unqualified along with many others. Good in other provinces but Calgary NO!

As a national company, Black & McDonald is a great company to work for. Provincially, management is difficult to work with or for. Very stressful environment with little chance of career advancement.

Good place to work. Free to schedule my own weeks with customer. Good management and office staff. Opportunities for overtime. Good contracts that challenge your expertise

Has to be the worse job I have had. Some management showed huge bias. Inconsistent management. They also would not listen to workers suggestions
With regards to better ways to do the job.
Pros
Some great people

Overall good company, lot's of work,good training, Company hires junior project managers with no construction experience at all to run jobs ,no clue what they are doing, some junior co-workers will stab you in the back to kiss up to the managers,upper management takes their side over dedicated loyal employees.

Without a doubt the most sleazy, dirtbag, scumbucket company I have ever worked for in my lifetime. Even after years of devoted service they will still throw any employee under the bus in a heartbeat if it serves their purpose. If you know what is good for you, you won't get within 100 miles of this company.

Good teams to work with while I was there. I worked alone and glad to see management trusted me to get the job done. Training was good and atmosphere was good.

Overall great place to work, my only complaint is getting moved around from departments and getting laid off after only 6 months. Management did attempt to find a placement for me, but so I can't really blame them for the situation.

The work was very high load with short deadlines, a lot of overtime was required, everyone was friendly and helpful, wanting everyone to succeed. However the group was very small for the workload.

Applied with indeed. Got email from HR to schedule a phone interview. Then onsite interview with hiring manager and HR. HR is very professional and approachable. The entire process is efficient.

Company is very well structured. Managers are respectful. Colleagues are collaborative.
