Construction Coordinator (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 8 September 2018
Never seen such a toxic work culture. Employees stick together and blame the contractors fo everything that goes wrong. Absolutely no accountability for employees. Treat contractors like second rate citizens. Doesnt matter if they are direct hire as a CNRL company representative or a subcontractor to complete field work. Most Employees apply the three "D"s if work ethic. Delegate, designate and disappear. The camp for non employees in Fort Mac is atrocious. Safety is all about Cover your buttocks and really is second to the almighty dollar. They will hire absolutely anyone that is cheap regardless of qualifications or experience. I have 25yr Oil and Gas experience and would only work here if there is nothing else.
Control Room Operator (Current Employee) – Fort Mackay, AB – 24 August 2018
I find this company very organized. They are good to there employees. The camp life is comfortable. The work schedule is very good and easy to follow. The company as a hole looks after there employees.

Fire Fighter/ Paramedic/Lieutenant (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 7 July 2018
Management in the Fire Department is a joke. The "Fire Chief" isn't Medically trained and once on his bad side, makes work H3LL. Do NOT question any of his decisions; if you do then you're being obstinate and insubordinate. Culture is one of "Shut up and just do what you're told." You cannot think outside the box or make decisions that are best for the situation. The only thing that makes the Fire Hall at Horizon is the guys on the floor- true brotherhood
Production Engineer (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 July 2018
A typical corporation that has grown very large and culture varies from business unit to business unit. Overall the management is a tight knitted bunch, with emphasis on meeting targets, doing more for less. The company culture is on the conservative side, they would not spend money if they don't have to operationally, even if it barely meets standards and regulations. Overall compensation is on the low end compared to its industry peers. There are some vicious people within the company and in the management. A lot of good managers and people working here, but also some bad actors with bad temperament and large ego.
much higher workload and less compensation compared to its peers
Cost Administrator, Drilling and Facilities (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 July 2018
Same company as another review - different department. Moved from this group as I was not a good fit for management style. Changes in management and reporting lines put us back under this group 4 years later - nothing changed.
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.
Mechanic (Former Employee) – Wood Buffalo, AB – 3 June 2018
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.
