Great people to work with.

Paid well and took good care of their people. The company changed a lot over the years but that was a result of the changing industry and management team.

Great company suppprt

Amazing company support and team support committed to making the team successful. Great training capabilities and furthering education where needed so that everyone is aware of why is expected and how to work with all types of personalities in the event you have issues in the field of management sectors.

Constant restructuring, lots of career movement.

Lots of great people to work with but with the constant restructuring you never have a supervisor for more than 1-1.5 years so there are openings available often. Encana has continued to drill and commission new facilitates but due to the downturn in the oil and gas industry they have been trying to run with less and less team members which puts more work load on an already overloaded and understaffed workforce. Over all they treat their staff well enough but they are still a corporation that is there to make as much profit as possible.

Let go with little emotion

Workers (Tech’s and Analysts) let go in mass, while Directors and Executives qualified for bonuses for cutting costs... on the backs of the masses. Company is always reorganizing which looks fine on paper, but data/systems/processes are never really able to catch-up.

Encana is great company

Encana is a great company. They treat people with respect. It’s really to bad that Encana is leaving Canada with the economic issues Canada is having. Sad to see them go

A good company with good benefits and challenging opportunities; change is a constant at this organization; morale at times was low as a result of constant change

Great company to work for

The company had great assets. It's just unfortunate that management made serious strategic blunders with respect to company splits, timing of acquisitions, and focusing primarily on natural gas.

A positive and rewarding experience

Encana is an aggresive company that always challenges its staff. Encana also maintains the highest safety expectations of any company I've worked for in the past requiring all management to have the highest priority set towards safety.

OMG what a project

I came in mid project on the corporate split. I was probably one of the last people hired before they chose to wait another year. Truly economic decision of course. During that time we worked and honed and aligned with the targets. I have never seen or experience project management and leadership so dedicated in my entire career. I was so impressed and motivated. It felt like being part of a happy borg of togetherness.

Pros

Management style

Cons

Did not last forever

Challenging and Rewarding

EnCana was a great company for diversity. As a young engineer you will meet a ton of field and office staff who all have a common goal to produce Oil and Gas economically, safely, and ethically. I learned the basics of almost everything from the reservoir to the sales point with a little more depth in Facilities Engineering and Internal Process Improvement. The culture demanded initiative, collaboration, and drive to succeed. The hardest part of some roles was managing career development with a face paced environment, while other roles it was overcoming personal misconceptions of roles and responsibilities.

Pros

Field Time, Training, and Driven Management Team

Cons

Management of Change

From Excellent to Horrible in 4 Years

Encana, specifically IS, was a great place to work 4+ years ago. Moral was high, the staff were talented, compensation was good, and it was all about excellence. Fast forward to 2017 and nearly all of IS has been outsourced and many talented people were let go or left of their own accord. Management has destroyed their reputation's through the advancement of an obvious but never admitted to downsizing over the last 4 years. The opportunities for career advancement dried up and staffing decisions were obviously biased.

Pros

1st and 3rd Friday's of the month off.

Cons

Poor management, no career advancement, poor compensation

Good work/life balance

Alternating Fridays off are always welcomed for those individuals who are family orientated. Unfortunately, the ongoing office politics eventually becomes tiring - affecting overall productivity as well as morale.

Pros

Good work/life balance

Cons

Too much office politics

Positive and Grateful Company

Overall... a great company to work for , company sold a portion to Endurance Energy back in 2013 , that was the only reason for me having to leave this company, of course the economy right now also doesn't help to be able to possibly get hired back on but really hoping it picks up soon and will be able to re apply ?? I highly recommend this company to anyone interested in working for them.

Pros

Approachable Management, very supportive

highly technical collaborative work environment

a typical day involved tier3 support of enterprise network also project work and proof of concept testing and implementation. management was not as organized as i would have liked. Direction from management was sometimes unclear and not communicated well. co-workers worked well together mostly. one worker would tend to try to take on all new emerging technologies without sharing the workload. previous management had good control of this. new manager was not taking charge of group the hardest part of the job was getting communication on direction the most enjoyable part was the new technologies and proof of concept design

Pros

every 2nd Friday off

Cons

segration of environments

Not what it used to be

Unfortunately, with the recent changing if the reigns at Encana (which WAS desperately needed), company culture and morale have been severely eroded, and in some cases now non-existent (Facilities Engineering - Technical Services, specifically). People are unhappy and simply cash their paycheck with no passion or enthusiasm for the job - which previously existed and oozed everywhere. The only "perk" that keeps people at the company are the two Fridays off per month. Recruiters and HR personnel actively root out and shred resumes with Encana on them. I am sure Gwyn would be proud to see the ship steered in the right direction, but not at the expense of ripping out its soul. RIP to a once great company.

Pros

Work Life Balance

Cons

Work environment, middle management, compensation
