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)

    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

    Pros

    Good people, strong community sense. Becoming more goal driven, which is good. People are given an opportunity to excel, and responsibility is given to those who take initiative.

    Cons

    Organizational structure has been confusing and has changed multiple times. This has been a long process, and seems to be improving with each month.
