Document Control Focal/ Coordinator (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 21 June 2018
Organization is good, allowing for short approval paths.
Build some internal opportunity pathways to improve employee self improvement motivation. Allow us to become leaders of technology, not force us to be leaders in the board room. Engage current employees to learn what they can give, instead of seeking it from outside.

CNRL is a cheap company, They take a dollar from the employees to save themselves a dime and make things as hard as possible on there employees, no pension, and the benifits are not that good, managment and the managment system is a joke.

This company will allows you to spread your wings which is great for learning and seeing new experiences. On the other hand this company doesn't acknowledge professional development nor does it recompense your achievements. The great coworkers is one of main reason to join/stay around
Operator 2 (Current Employee) – Alberta Avenue, AB – 30 April 2018
Employees are treated as cannon fodder. Years of experience and knowledge count for nothing. Field level employees have little hope for advancement unless they are good friends with someone above them on the totem pole. Upper management treats employee wages as a cash pool to be lowered in order to raise money to purchase competitors.
Long hours, poor life-work balance, no input into anything from field level. Safety and Policy are driven top down.
Welder and Fabricator (Current Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 8 April 2018
Overall it's a good place to work. CNRL is more business driven and it shows in how they manage their people.. They are not afraid to make cuts.
The major downside to this company is there is no company pension. You are invested entirely into their stocks for retirement... Stocks of an oil and gas company in a world that is advancing towards greener technology every year.
Shift Engineer /Control Room Operator (Former Employee) – British Columbia – 13 February 2018
Good personal growth but the retirement plan was not good. Stock options would have been okay if the was a value growth, but up and down didn't generate any real value for employees unless they could afford to purchase them. even then there wasn't much change in value.
