    Pros

    Decent pay compared to similar industry, pay is not as comparable to larger oil and gas or energy companies. Benefits are decent. Work culture is ok.

    Offices at mine site are not great. Work schedule is not flexible. A fair amount of wasted time / resources due to the vastness of the operation.

    Pros

    Compensation package is very good.

    Cons

    Take the time to read the reviews of this company. Almost all of the 4 and 5 star reviews are a reflection of the salary and benefits packages. Read into the "cons" to get a real sense of the dissatisfaction of employees with workload, work life balance, and frustration with middle management. That's what it's really like to work at Teck and what you will be faced with on a day to day basis.

    If you are a driven, skilled and passionate person who takes pride in your work and want to feel like you are part of a high performing team then STAY AWAY, particularly from the Social, Environmental and Regulatory Approvals (SERA) team. If you want to turn your brain off and be micro-managed for the rest of your career, then this is the right place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the middle managers who are creating a toxic environment for their teams. Ask team members for feedback on middle management and LISTEN to that feedback and take action on it.
