You are expected to put in a lot of overtime everyday. Little consideration is given to work life balance. It is ok to leave 2 hr late but you get shouted at for being even a 1 min late. Arrogant owner.
Lot of experienced and nice people at non-management level
Very acceptable working atmosphere with Solaris Management allowing most employees to manage their work requirements based on an individuals past work experiences.
Majority of co-workers were pro-active and enjoyable to work with and many offered assistance when required. Management were cooperative and supportive.
Hardest part of working at times were the long hours and pressures initiated by client demands for information & reporting that was felt to be unnecessary - ie. duplicated reporting of same facts, figures & information on various reports.
Overall the enjoyable part of work was the camaraderie of all employees working together and management recognizing a persons experience.
When you first join Solaris they give you a mentor which is great to have someone show you the process of the gas industry and the company's work ethic.
I worked in the Pipeline group, creating P & ID and isometric drawings. It was fast paced work environment.
Generally a young work staff, family owned business. Energetic and aggressive owner looking to continue growing organically to become a significant player in the natural gas EPCM market for British Columbia and Alberta.
Meeting with company's client and co-workers. Doing work outs in the gym.
I learned more about oil & gas industry in Canada.
Management is fairly strong on traditional way of dealing with employees.
This is a multi-cultural work place. Inter-cultural friendship binds are limited.
The hardest part of job is to cope with deadlines, when departments haven't delivered as they were supposed to.
The most enjoyable part of the job is to get new project to ensure job security.
Allowing overtime as required to meet the deadlines
some favoritism style behavior among top management
