Production & Revenue Accountant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 October 2015
If you aren't close with the Supervisor and Manager they will find reasons to get rid of hardworking employees. Since they are from Penn West they seem to only hire Ex Penn West Employees into the group.
A company growing for the people and energy in the company and office
Senior Accounts Payable Clerk (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 April 2015
Generally data entry, dealing with a team motivated to working hard together.Continually learning new programs, implementing new processes, working through specific projects which I enjoyed, change was great, motivating and challenging to the mind. Enjoyable part was the interaction with co-workers within the office, vendors and suppliers...person to person contact. Open, honest communication throughout the company.
Alot of incentive for all employees through various ways
Company had to re-organize business and let go staff
Was a good work environment, which provided me with good opportunities and valuable lessons.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Calgary – 10 February 2015
In my time at tala I worked for 5 different Managers, Did learn different styles and how to interpret them. I did like the staff that I worked with, we had a team approach which allowed all members to contribute. Working with other departments can be challenging, definitely required negotiation and collaboration skills. No 2 days were ever the same, variety kept it interesting and challenging.
My opinion did seem to matter.
Disconnecting work life was difficult for me personally.
Reservoir Engineering (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 January 2014
TAQA is a very young company with lots of skilled employees to learn from. What I love about TAQA was the challenging projects you had to work with. They will let you come up with your own solutions to the different problems while guiding you if you had any difficulties along the way.
At work, I had the chance to work with different projects in the oil industry because of the wide portfolio the company had. I also had the chance to interact with chiefs and VPs at the company which was really helpful in understanding your career path in the industry.
In general I think the company is a good place for learning. On the down side, management was not very keen to approving projects and looking for new ways to make the company productive. They were more of cost reduction type of operations which seemed very ineffective when not combine with applying new ideas from the newer engineers such as myself.
Joint Venture Accountant (Former Employee) – Downtown Calgary, AB – 24 November 2013
Great company to work at ,unfortunately due to sustained low Natural Gas prices they have had to reduce staff,sell properties to ensure the longer term viability of the company. My typical day consisted of dealing with Partners requesting backup and clarification of items invoiced to them and may include reversing and re-billing some of those items.
Positive working environment .
Volume of incorrect billings, volume of requests for backup!
Executive Administrative Assistant, Exploration (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 October 2013
This company is currently re-structuring thier organization. The security level is below average at the moment. I have currently been laid off from Taqa North, due to recent lay-offs.
It was one of the best places that I have indeed encountered. My Director for whom I worked with, was an great example of what an executive should be. She is without a doubt, one of the greatest mentors I have enjoyed to work with. The benefits and salary were also top notch in its industry.
Benefits, such as vacation time and flex time. Long Term Retention Plan
Senior Fee Title Administrator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 30 October 2012
I worked with a very good group of people and a great Supervisor. The benefits were good overall it was a learning experience. I found TAQA management heavy. My position was created in 2010 and eliminated in 2012 as I believe the expectations from management from this position were not thoroughly understood.
