A good place to work. Careers advancement probably not there but your job is secured. Good compensation with shares and match-up saving plan.
A good place for fresh graduates.

I worked for several years at CNRL. The work load is extremely heavy, with very little support or appreciation of the employees.
My experience is that the Commercial Operations is a toxic environment due to the management. Quite often walking on egg shells with no consistency in processes.

Any added extras in the compensation package are "taxable benefits", there are no pluses to working here other than being employed.
Pros
Working in a downtown office with vibrant surroundings in the
Cons
Management, Work load and life balance, compensation

Their compensation packages can be very lucrative if hired in the right moment, Constant pressure & some system interfaces tough to deal with. You will always face urgent requests and emergency work and pressure
Overall it is great if you put 6 years in fort mcmurray and have the ability to solve problems and work under pressure.

3.5/5

Be prepared for a fast paced aggressive work place. Don’t look for positive feedback it simply doesn’t exist here. I found it to be cold and impersonal. Salary, savings, benefits and stock plans are equivalent to industry standards

Only people that get taken care of are the executive leaders. They receive absurd amounts of money for bonus’ . The average worker is lucky to get a bonus at all.

CNRL runs lean and mean, not great for the family life but this changes from area to area depending on the leadership in that area.
Employees are treated well and are happy with benefits provided by CNRL.

Pros

Half my time away from my family.

Great place to work if you enjoy challenges; direction and control of your projects with little interference. I learned a lot there. However, you are a number to them. There was no advancement in pay, regardless of performance or cost savings; they will work you into the ground if you let them.
Pros
Good Benefits Program
Cons
Cheap; Sweatshop; Very Poor Management

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.
Pros
stability
Cons
much higher workload and less compensation compared to its peers
