Suggestions for improvement

  • More understanding of day to day activities from my boss’s boss. Not necessarily increased time/involvement day to day, but a general willingness to be familiar with the roles they indirectly oversee would be appreciated.

What I like about the company

Management is supportive. Work is challenging. I’m given a great deal of autonomy to complete the job as I see fit. My ideas and input feel valued.

What I dislike about the company

For a long time, advancement opportunities were scarce. We are now in a period of strong growth so I can see that changing already.

Company Culture

Co-workers keep you in good spirits, but management brings down team morale constantly.

Support from management

Our production goals were unrealistic however, management communicated the unrealistic goals very clearly. We were consistently told our jobs would be lost if we did not meet the unreasonable expectations.

Teamwork

Colleagues internally (in our office) did everything in their power to aid one another. We discussed issues upfront and there were rarely issues between coworkers.

Gender Equality

This is a male dominated industry. There are very few women in management. The few there are, do a very good job. However, they're consistently told they're "too emotional" and are routinely disciplined for it.

Career Development

There was always talk of sending myself and my colleagues to trainings and seminars. It never happened. Our workload was always too heavy and thus the schedule didn't leave time for it.

Office / Work Environment

Pieces of ceiling tiles and water fell on our equipment every time it rained. Most of the equipment we were supposed to be using was only semifunctuonal. The rest was completely ancient and not up to industry, or even company standards. We had no temperature control in the winter because the central heating did not work. The technology was beyond old. Things that should take little to no time, took 30-45 minutes at minimum.

Environmental Friendliness

There is no concern for the environment at this location. This is an oil and gas office.

Work-Life Balance

If you somehow meet the unrealistic goals they've set, you may get the day off that you requested 3 months in advance. There is constant pressure to work more hours so that your peers are not the only ones feeling exhausted.

Job Security

Despite myself and my colleagues being overworked and underpaid, we were told there would probably be cuts because we were not producing enough. However, cuts would ensure we would never produce enough because we need every member of the team to perform as we have.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Please spend more time with your subordinates. They constantly work with the clients, the instruments, and the chemicals. They are aware of issues that you are not. Listen to them carefully and with open minds. Field experience will not substitute book knowledge and the reverse is true as well.

What I like about the company

My colleagues were great. Direct management was very supportive.

What I dislike about the company

My management had little to no support. There was so much red tape for my management to get through in order to provide things we needed to do our jobs effectively.
