I have been working at Cenovus full-time (More than 3 years)
In my opinion, it has definitely improved over the past year. I am happy with the new executive management as well as improved management at other levels of the organisation. I also feel that the strategy is more clear and focused now. I have found the company to be flexible with regards to working conditions as well.
Most of the downsides could be facing other oil and gas companies at the moment with the challenges facing the industry. It can be difficult to get approval for projects (though not impossible if there is a good business case).
I applied online. I interviewed at Cenovus (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in June 2017.
Very casual and comfortable experience. Interview was focused on the relationships between groups within the company. Hiring to improve those relationships benefits everyone. The direction is changing from the past where there was only one focus and that was to get it built fast, and now there is more time and the opportunity make improvements without sacrificing project timelines.
