Experience will vary according to where you are working
Engineering Specialist (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 15 January 2018
Its such a large enterprise that the experience will vary widely between different divisions. I was able to work in Product Development in most areas (Business, Commercial, Completions) and different phases in the life cycle (Development, sustaining) and focus (Support to production, support to field). Generally was a positive experience with very good colleagues. Management varies, some are micro-managers and can treat senior people as if they are entry level. Too many useless initiatives (Achieving Excellence) that try to drive the culture but end up being a waste of time. Senior Management is distant and does not inspire confidence, but is an improvement over previous family-run company. Generally the work-life balance is good, benefits are good but in recent years have been tightened in attempts to control costs.
Professional, Good colleagues, can be interesting
Bureaucratic, Senior management lacklustre
