I have been working at PennWest

Pros

- Very friendly and open atmosphere. Senior Management are very friendly and approachable
- Mid-sized company, but has a very small feel to it
- Nice downtown office! Good location
- Gym inside the building!
- Competitive pay & benefits

Cons

- There doesn't seem to be any international opportunities, company is solely based in Canada
- Might not be easy to transfer from department to department

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Even if PennWest does continue to grow and reach the size of Husky & Talisman and the others..don't lose the atmosphere! Keep hiring summer students

    Current Employee - Production Reliability in Calgary, AB (Canada)
    Current Employee - Production Reliability in Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I have been working at PennWest full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    CEO is totally unlike his predecessor, which is a good thing. Mr Roberts is passionate and has a very good handle on the things that will turn this company around.
    Good fringe benefit package (vacation, health spending account, office closure days)

    Cons

    Immense workload due to recent staffing changes.
    Salary is below average and should be made up by the stock option plan but the stock is performing so terribly that options are worthless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to look at the people in middle management in the company. Some of them are not buying into the new culture

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
