Salary and benefits are decent. Few co-workers that actually care and offer support. Overall not a positive working environment with clear expectations of tasks required. No sense of apprection for staff.

Pros

Decent salary and benefits

Cons

Unfortunately too many to list...

Badly managed company with dangerous working conditions

- Dangerous working conditions, related to helicopters and long drives. You can never be 100% sure that an engineer didn't drop a screw to the helicopter engine (this happened twice in a short period of time), and that you will not have to land in the middle of nowhere or worse just crash. - Pay is below the industry standards and no overtime pay. And even after that they will try their best not pay you what they are supposed to be paying according to the Canadian Employment Laws. - The work-life balance is the worst I've ever seen. 16 or 18 hour working days are not unusual. You can spend 8 weeks in the field and after getting home and being there for just 3 days office can call you asking to return back to work. - Old equipment and no enough people to do proper maintenance. Almost every system has some problems and you will have to fix these problems in the field without proper manuals and with almost no support. - Micromanagement everywhere - Poorly planned projects and bad logistics. This will mean that you will have to drive with fuel and to fuel the helicopter and work very long hours every day - Zero corporate culture - No any safety training or any training at all - Only in this company you can be offered "a promotion" with the decrease in your salary If you want to stay alive and well stay away from this company

Pros

Traveling to some interesting places like Canadian Arctic, Free time on weather days when you can study or look for another job

Was a great company to work for.

Typical day at work, started at 5am, one hour commute each way, provided by the company. I was given a lot of trust & responsibility with my position. My manager was not onsite, but a phone call away. I worked on a small team, the position was seasonal, as were most of the projects within the company, yet future projects were always lined up and just around the corner. The hardest part was long shifts, early mornings, yet rotational work where you work six days on and have four off is perfect. The most enjoyable part was working outdoors as well as indoors, provided a perfect balance, and getting to go all over site, switching projects keeps things fresh, nothing gets to stagnant.

Pros

amazing benefits

Cons

sometimes the hours are too demanding, I did 21 days on in a row last winter, resulting in me feeling completely burnt out.
