  8. 1.0
    Current Employee

    Pros

    -Benefits (with caveats) -If you want an above average compensation (it is decreasing given the economy) bearing all the cons, then go ahead. There are folks who just need any job to support their family and this place will give you just that.

    Cons

    -Benefits are designed to tie you down to the place for a long time, which ends up hurting the employee when they find themselves stuck in a toxic place with no way out unless they take a financial loss. Read your fine prints, ask questions before signing an offer, it is up to you to find out. -PURE CHAOS. The place is mismanaged and individuals who are not interested in doing their job properly constantly take advantage of the chaos, leading to extremely low productivity. The same people will push responsibilities onto high performers which results in their fatigue. -Constructive dismissal of employees who are high performers that point out valid concerns but are an inconvenience for management. -Management will never admit they are wrong, period. They will pursue every avenue to silence you in order to keep climbing their ladder. When anonymous surveys are handed out to their employees and they receive poor results, they will talk about how to improve and pretend to be receptive to feedback, then go back to their old business model. Hence the high turnover rate. -Hiring posts are inaccurate and don't disclose the full detail of your responsibilities. Employees constantly find out new responsibilities on the job that would have been deal breakers if disclosed during the interview. To make things worse management make empty promises of developing their employees without ever doing so, it's like dangling a carrot in front of a horse until the horse burns out. Hence the high turnover rate. -Mistreatment and emotional manipulation of employees in order to keep them in a place they don't like, you see colleagues at work coming out emotionally damaged and wonder if you are next.

    Pros

    Good salary, excellent vacation, still offer pension plan pending you meet certain criteria.

    Cons

    Downsizing and getting rid of amazing talent. Constantly changing direction. No training or support. Management does not appear to understand the skills required to run the business successfully.

    Northern Oilsands Culture is out of Touch

    Jun 2, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in Fort McMurray, AB

    Pros

    The company seems to be seeking a positive move towards reducing its carbon footprint. Efforts are being made to review and improve on the overall culture within. Digitalization efforts and adoption of Technology in HQ in Calgary appear to be full steam ahead.

    Cons

    Leadership seems out of touch and continues to blame millennials for the industry problems (I don't think they know how old millennials are or that they are now a bulk of their workforce). Culture shifts seem limited to areas of visibility making one question if the company is sincere in changing the culture or virtue signaling. Northern Oilsands continues to operate in a "Cowboy up" fashion with issues of prejudice and could use a serious re-org due to incestuous homogeneous behaviors perpetuated by front line Managers and Directors. Northern Oilsands has a segregate culture from the overarching company with lots of unspoken rules about wanting people relocated to stay in a role for 3-5 years and in the northern region for 7 years (even though no frontline manager has held a role for longer than 2 years at anytime). Deceitful hiring practices are employed to undermine the fact that the culture in the region is very much a hustle culture with limited amenities available to unwind (get used to 3.5-4 hour one way trips once or twice a month.
