    I worked at Imperial Oil as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Good pay, many benefits such as travel, training, etc. Good safety culture (can be annoying but stil good)

    Cons

    Very rigid organizational structure. Conservative, obsessed with "company assets" e.g. don't use a company desk to do your own stuff during lunch time.
    And, they are one of the worst in the world environmentally, not just by the nature of their industry but they go for compliance and not beyond.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is the 21st Century:
    -Rethink how rigid everything is for employees
    -Change name to Imperial Renewables and get going with some alternative energy (natural gas doesn't count)
