    I worked at Potashcorp

    Pros

    The company pays their employees well. Salaries are above average. Benefits are good and the company seems to value diversity.

    Cons

    Lack of trust, promotion of employees is not based on skills or achievements. Long-term employees are not valued. Not much opportunity for professional development for employees who work in rural locations. Employees get stuck at one location and there should be more movement to gain different work experience.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work on a lot of interesting projects. Company gives a lot of responsibility. Last 10 years was mainly expansion work, which was very exciting, but the expansions are coming to an end with the market downturn.

    Cons

    Archaic benefits package that skirts around Canadian Labor laws - Company does not pay for health insurance when you are on maternity/paternity leave, leaving you high and dry.

    I worked at Potashcorp

    Pros

    The people that I worked with were fantastic and were always willing to help. Senior Management changes are starting to make a difference, but this will take time.

    Cons

    Potash commodity prices are at historic lows. This limits funds available for operational and capital projects. Processes are also very outdated. There are lots of opportunities for improvement.
