    I worked at Canadian Natural Resources full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, employer matching RRSPs, no layoffs

    Cons

    Very little flexibility when it comes to family. You work their hours, no questions asked. Health and dental package is OK, does not include things like acupuncture, and very little physio and massage, dental runs out fast! Long hours. Management is not very approachable. Keep your head down and work. Career opportunities for women are not as abundant as for men.

    I worked at Canadian Natural Resources full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Treats employees with respect. Has lots of good resources for growth and development in the industry. Recognises talent.

    Cons

    Due to it's size, departments tends to operate in silos. The tendency for communication between departments on the ground level to be nil to little reduces the opportunity to develop as an employee and reduces the benefits of the team approach to the company.

    Advice to Management

    Although there are many employees to manage, allowing some room for employees to take initiative would engage the employees more and provide a more creative and effective business environment.
