    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Calgary, AB

    I worked at MEG Energy full-time for more than a year

    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!

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at MEG Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    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

    I worked at MEG Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They use to have a strong belief with advancement and opportunities for their Staff. Great Benefits offered, flexible work hours, and fostered the sense of productivity, innovation and change. Your team was valued and offered the chance to make a difference. You were rewarded for hard work and collaboration.

    Cons

    Post IPO and hiring some poor leaders, the company morale declined, and was greatly hindered. They fired many great people, and promoted the wrong people. This succession and changing of the guard resulting in poor performing teams, misguided tasks and questionable leadership.

    I worked at MEG Energy

    Pros

    Nice people, alternate Fridays off, monthly free breakfast. Feels like a smaller company. Company functions open to all types of employment.

    Cons

    Communication between depts. could be better. Too many levels of approval required for simple changes. Hours were 8 to 5, no freedom to start at 7:30 if desired.

    I have been working at MEG Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great work environment -- fun place. People are professional and still fun. Migrating to a get er done type company.

    Cons

    Some bureaucracy still remains, but are getting it slowly cleaned up. Have cut positions deeply so now may be too lean.
