    I worked at Potashcorp

    Pros

    The company pays their employees well. Salaries are above average. Benefits are good and the company seems to value diversity.

    Cons

    Lack of trust, promotion of employees is not based on skills or achievements. Long-term employees are not valued. Not much opportunity for professional development for employees who work in rural locations. Employees get stuck at one location and there should be more movement to gain different work experience.
