      Pros

      Benefits package Generally stable Don't have to work too hard

      Cons

      Overbearing, controlling management Incompetent leadership Squeeze employees for every dime No future at any of the assets Horrible culture (what culture?) Lies to you often Hides behind policies to avoid conflict with employees No bonuses Pay dropped off hard last few years with inflation Living in cold lake sucks, living in camp is awful Big big big favouritism. Ranking is a joke, they curve fit to their favorites No development, mentorship, or training anymore. cut cut cut assets are doing poorly, gutted in the last few years. big underinvestment now showing. going to get squeezed more by exxon Exxon calls all the shots. Controls budgets, headcount, hiring, investment decisions. Just a branch of exxon. Not a place for creative people. Do it their way or get in trouble even if you achieve superior results majorly understaffed. Isn't allowed to hire. total joke.
