    I have been working at Imperial Oil full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Management is putting in time, effort and money to address culture issues that have developed over years - Lots of R&D ongoing, and management supports it even through slower times - Highly skilled, technical workforce compared to peers in the industry

    Cons

    - Slow movers, always the first to invent a technology, but never the first to implement, commercialize it, and start making money from it - Younger work force due to recent natural attrition via retirement - Hostile ranking system (management promises to change this in the coming years) - Workforce is usually lean, which puts a lot of pressure and stress on employees during boom times

    Pros

    Good entry salary and bonus to resume.

    Cons

    Management does not listen to employees. The forced ranking system needs to be replaced or removed. It is not a fair system to be used for all employees. Overall work environment is quite demotivating where ppl only care about themselves under unhealthy competition among peers.
