    I have been working at Canadian Natural Resources full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Organization is very flat, allowing for short approval paths and less bureaucracy. New employees can influence change as much as much more senior staff.

    Pay is good, but negotiate hard when you’re hired as all future raises are based on that number.

    Stock options and savings plan are excellent.

    Cons

    Room for advancement is limited in many departments. Leadership is not typically promoted but hired from outside to be leaders. Once in a leadership position you are only managing people and relationships. Some departments don’t have any seniority designation among workers.

    Advice to Management

    You have a good balance on most things. Build some internal opportunity pathways to improve employee self improvement motivation. Allow us to become leaders of technology, not force us to be leaders in the board room. Engage current employees to learn what they can give, instead of seeking it from outside.
