You can learn a lot

It is a place where you can learn a lot. People are respectful but there are many politics among management and capital is restricted. Peers can be very helpful and friendly and you can make long lasting friendships with some of your peers. Difficult to get promoted and not too much transparency between the team and the management so it makes it difficult to achieve your goals.

Enjoyable and Inclusive work place

Good for learning and applying your skills. Management is overall supportive. Instability in Oil and Gas market makes it difficult to survive for company and employees, but company is trying to work out better for employees.

Pros

Matured Supply Chain Organization

Cons

Process driven at times makes it difficult to work things not warranted.

Contractors vs Employee

Contract workers are not recognized for the work they do. Even though the company speaks on diversity - they should also include Contract Workers as part of "Diversity" as they are not treated equally.

Working culture at Husky is outdated

The management style at Husky starts at the top with the board of directors who are remote entities operating out of Hong Kong. They are strictly focused on the bottom line, stock prices and cash flow. The local corporate managers, CEO's, directors are entirely beholden to their masters and although they pay lip service to concepts of fairness, diversity and inclusion, aboriginal affairs and environment, their hands are tied in order to meet the requirements of their overlords. 'Hands tied' in the sense of the few at the top being paid enormous sums in order to maintain the status quo. Overall, not a very humanistic or positive work environment.

Stressful place to work.

The typical day starts with a daily huddle to see who did what yesterday and if you did not accomplish what you said that you would you better have a good reason.

Very productive and learning atmosphere.

Very productive and relaxed atmosphere with room for growth both personal and professional.Courses were offered at regular intervals both in house and contract. Professional designation was required for most positions and there was always a lot of learning to be done in a very dynamic atmosphere with ever changing industry and government regularions, deadlines etc.

Not a People's Company

Only two leaders in the organization have been consistent with their proper approach to the company, CEO and SVP HO&OS , they look like excellent managers that anyone wants to works with them. Some managers don't have experience handling people nor technical experience but they are managers because they are friends with somebody in leadership If you want to succeed in Husky, you need to be friend or share coffee with leadership. Corporate offices people spend all their time walking around +15 and drinking coffee at Starbuck. Areas of the company are silos working on their own without following company structure. Corporate initiatives to the areas are some times not well planned and waste time to implement and areas are taking the approach to close the door to any initiatives (good or bad) coming from corporate Major Organizational changes are done every year with the excuse of improving the organization, this cause that people live unease because they don't have job security

Productive environment with great people

Collaborative meetings and discussions with team members. Many challenging and up tempo projects that need to be completed with strict deadlines. Management had an open door policy so many people felt comfortable working together.

Overall good company to work for. Supportive management staff

It has been good 6 years with the company. They present a good internal moving program to help young engineers try different department before settling into a role.

Good working environment

I am a contract employee so I do not get to take full advantage of what Husky has to offer its employees. However, it has been a good working environment and they treat employees well with lots of room for growth.

Excelente ambiente laboral en una empresa multicultural

Ambiente de trabajo muy variado con frecuentes viajes a las zonas operacionales. Trato directo con muchos empleados de planta y contratistas. A lo largo de mis 13 años de experiencia en la empresa, he tenido muchos retos interesantes y he tenido buena delegación de responsabilidades. He tenido muy buena experiencia liderando un equipo de ingenieros en diferentes roles.

Excellent supervision

My supervisor made all the difference, a great boss makes the work fulfilling and rewarding. There are a great many challenges within large corporations that can be addressed with good oversight from a knowledgeable supervisor.

Being integrated is their strength.

Safety is a big issue never resolved there in reality. Several companies exist within the company. One of VP let go some of the best talents due to his personal ego and got promoted!
