Pembina is a fast paced workplace, High expectations and safety oriented. Expected to work hard and always learning and upgrading. Lots of documentation and taking proper care to avoid any incidents. Lots of OGC simulations of spills to keep up to date ic case of any incidents.
Operator (Employé actuel) – Control center – 24 novembre 2019
Pembina was once a great company to work for however the company has grown tremendously over the years and suffers from ineffective leadership and an overworked workforce. In an effort to reduce costs employees are expected to absorb work load.
A lot of insecure people at all levels. They will throw you under the bus and not give a second thought. A lot of brown nosing goes on. Upper management have no idea how workers are treated or they don't care. If you like to work in a environment that has no timelines and no responsibility and work under people who have no idea what they are doing this is the place. Grew too fast, too quick and too many unqualified people as leaders.
Not a place I would ever work for again. Weak management who played favourites. Always have to watch over your shoulder as to who is real and who is a bosses pet. Expect to be thrown under the bus. LAZY operators get away with doing nothing due to being the bosses friend and others have to make up for that lazy person. Was not the place I thought it would be. The grande cache location is where I was at and do not recommend it whatsoever
Do not try to stand up for yourself if you're being treated unfairly, it will not go well for you. There is lack of leadership in the office and if you speak up about you're concerns you will be blacklisted and forced out.
A smaller company that is growing quickly. The work atmosphere is good and people who work their are great. You have the option to develop yourself. A good training program and management supports your development to grow.
Everyday was like walking on glass, Management regularly makes sure staff knew not to speak up/out that they would be singled out and dealt with. long term employees have said that they have never felt so uncomfortable with management and cannot wait till retirement.
My job was at the Grande Cache plant. The manager will make it impossible to gain employment anywhere else in the area if you quit. He is a weak backstabbing liar, not to mention a big coward who is childish and plays favorites
The employees who have always worked for Pembina think its a good place to work but those who have worked in other shops think otherwise. Unfortunately the work - life balance is horrible and senior management is seriously disconnected with their employees.
