    Pros

    Technical teams were excellent in executing projects, new ideas were always welcome and top company for implementing new technology.

    Cons

    Industry headwinds for heavy oil due to prices. New CEO has a past history of large staff reductions and lay offs.

    Pros

    An amazing company to work for. Everyone had a blast working here, the motto was work hard play harder. And they really took it to heart. Prior to the founder stepping down, three day weekends every other week were the norm. Mondays everyone came into the office very upbeat and well rested. And when things were good, the CEO shared the wealth with everyone, from top to bottom. Bill really gave a good example of how to treat people nicely, no matter your title, he would greet everyone he came across, a very humble man.

    Cons

    There was an underlying toxicity in the workplace, a lot of gossip coming from the one person that assisted the CEO, and even sexual harassment from this one person towards some of the younger guys. Everyone saw this happened yet they feared them and no one talked to HR about it. Or at least HR never did anything to nip it in the bud. When one of the students finally left, he mentioned that if MEG wasn't such a nice place to work for, he would file a sexual harassment suite against this person.

    Round Peg in a Square Hole

    Pros

    Excellent Pay and Perks. Surreal work environment in downtown Calgary. Overall, very friendly people. Flexible hours, every other Friday off, 36 hour work week. Vacation benefit exceeded expectation. Excellent severance package.

    Cons

    Underutilized.... Almost had to beg for something to do. My biggest challenge was staying awake. Work that MEG had where I was an expert, was given to others without the expertise. The tail wagged the dog in too many instances in that hired EPC companies were calling the shots in too many cases. Improvement from past projects was frowned upon. I was eventually laid off which, in hindsight, was a good thing!

    Pros

    Higher than average compensation (but changing quickly) Benefit package was good. Nice office space (the move from across the street was unnecessary but this company has bravado like you wouldn’t believe).

    Cons

    Dumpster fire that will inevitably be put out once their cost cutting is done and company is sold People in positions that would never in a thousand lifetimes be in those same positions at a normally functioning company
