Bad O&G company & bad environment/culture
Developer (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 January 2019
Very little teamwork and culture. Managers are not competent, condesending and although they say they want to be challenged they will try to "Manage You Out of the Business" if you challenge them. The entire culture is aggressive and sucks.
Pros
none
Cons
low pay, only interns and bad devs

Overall a good organzation
Assistant Corporate Controller (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 April 2018
The company is recovering from a few difficult years from the downturn in the Oil and Gas Industry.

Pason needs to deliver on new products to the market and maintain current market share levels.

Great people - but stay in the middle of the herd
Product Line Manager, Communications (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB25 March 2015
Pason is a high tech company focused on the oil and gas drilling industry. It is full of smart, hardworking people who are passionate about what they do. It used to be a really great place to work.

Unfortunately, recent changes in senior leadership has changed what had been an exceptional corporate culture. Random layoffs occur regularly with no communication or explanation. If you get to close to the edge of the herd - you too may be gone. The customer focus has changed from building exceptional, long-lasting, rig-tough products to more of a short term view of "What can we sell TODAY".

Time will tell if the brand loyalty that has been built up since 1978 can overcome the latest mismanagement.
Pros
Great people, great culture.
Cons
Executive mismanagement

Great company when I first started
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 March 2015
Pason is a great company if you are fortunate enough to work for the right manager. The Chairman of the Board, CEO and many other senior managers have worked hard to create and sustain a great culture and environment.

Unfortunately, there are a few senior managers that don't live and breathe the culture that made Pason a great place to work previously.

The Human Resources Department, aka People and Culture (or People with no Culture, which is what the majority of staff referred to them as), lacks the right leadership, nor are they fully competent as a whole.
Pros
Gym and free fitness classes
Cons
Lack of communication from senior leadership team

Disconnected management and fear culture
Administrative (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB23 January 2015
Management rarely attends social functions and has very little to do with lower level employees. Benefits and pay look great on paper but when you factor in the overtime required to meet their expectations the salary is actually very low. There are a lot of sudden changes being made with little communication to employees. Sudden terminations and no internal communication on where employees should direct questions or concerns in the absence of a manager.
Pros
summer bbqs, benefits
Cons
unstable
