Does NOVA Chemicals offer relocation assistance?

Pros

Succession planning program, benefits package, infectiously positive atmosphere

Cons

Although the culture is one of safety and encouragement, as a NOVA employee who worked along side both contract employees and NOVA employees, I could see a distinct difference in the interactions between the two groups and that bothered me.

Does NOVA Chemicals have a pension plan?

Pros

Pay, pension, benefits, time off.

Cons

Old boy mentality’s and harassment is often encouraged and performed by supervisors. The company would be great minus that and the nepotism. Instead of hiring someone with the experience or listening to employees on who to hire, it is often discovered that the successful candidate has someone who is related or has direct contact with a person in management. This has created several personality conflicts within crews as some people have favourable treatment and are “invincible” while others are getting fired for the same offences. As operations there are zero to no opportunities to get into management or branch off into other areas of the company unless you have a family or direct relationship outside of the company in that area of the business.

Advice to Management

Listen to employees on who to hire. Especially those who are in small crews of two or three.

Pay, pension, benefits, time off.
