I have been working at PennWest

Pros

- Very friendly and open atmosphere. Senior Management are very friendly and approachable
- Mid-sized company, but has a very small feel to it
- Nice downtown office! Good location
- Gym inside the building!
- Competitive pay & benefits

Cons

- There doesn't seem to be any international opportunities, company is solely based in Canada
- Might not be easy to transfer from department to department

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

    I worked at PennWest full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    My supervisor was great for, he worked very hard to include everyone as part of the group.

    Cons

    It became tough to work here as there were so many layoffs going on in all departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn something about the people you are laying off. Some people have been in the industry a long time and do other roles if there current role is not longer required.

    I have been working at PennWest full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Offices are in a new building and have some decent perks (i.e. on-site gym, daycare provisions)

    Cons

    No work life balance, and compensation program is not competitive (and this is before the decline in oil prices). There is a belief that they pay well, but the reality is that stock options, cash bonuses, and other incentives are not competitive. They claim a 7.5 work day, but reality is that you end up working 9-10 hours on a consistent basis.
