    I worked at Pembina Pipelines full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Compensated reasonably well - Company is doing well and has a bright future

    Cons

    - Very poor culture. Long hours, very little recognition - Weak leadership. Promotions were not merit based and leadership experience in many business and service areas was shallow - Extremely political; must watch your back. Teams worked very poorly together in many cases. I hated the thought of waking up to come to work and quit for my own mental well being.

    Advice to Management

    Is Pembina a family or a business? The culture does not fit 'family', but the company keeps employees that do not meet expectations in most cases, therefore start acting like a company with strong leadership and make difficult decisions. A significant upgrade in talent is required at levels under the executive.

    I have been working at Pembina Pipelines full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Yearly Christmas party and golf tournament

    Cons

    Poor compensation based on industry standards and no matter how good performance is, no raise to be had. They dangle bonuses like carrots, expecting overtime, extra hours, pile on the workload without hiring any additional support. They promote from within based on who has been there the longest, no outside ideas. Management is awful, always critical and don't ever expect a kudos for a job well done unless you're... part of the 'in crowd.' Company is also not diverse at all. Very few women in leadership roles.

    Advice to Management

    Stop promoting from within, hire competent people and stop running such a lean ship.
