Still a long way to go in terms of workplace culture for inclusion and diversity - Oil & Gas is still very heavily an old boys' club. Base case I think the nature of manufacturing and production facilities which are running 24/7/365 tends to push people to feel like they always need to be available. The company does have good benefits, especially with the extra 8 weeks of family leave passed in 2017. Biggest challenge is setting your own limits for work/life balance as the culture will always be there pushing to be available more hours and "always on".

    Company passed an extra 8 weeks of family leave for both parents in 2017, which is a great improvement. Still remains to be seen what the fallout will be for employees who actually use their time off, as the general culture is flexible work hours on paper "at supervisors discretion" and then judging people behind their backs for not putting in long hours and a lot of desk time. Overall, culture pushes people to work extra hours (running joke is the question - "Why give employees 9/80s when we get them to work 10/100s?")

  • Recommend to Women?

    Maybe. Women seem to be somewhat fairly treated on the management side as there is a focus on pushing women into the management track in middle management. However, there is still a shortage of women at the upper level of management, and two of the very senior women have retired this year and were replaced by men due to a lack of "qualified candidates". Very few women on the technical side are promoted into the upper ranks (first female Chief Engineer every for ExxonMobil Chemical in 2017). Company culture prioritizes employee location flexibility and willingness to work on expatriate assignments as career development requirements but does not provide expat assignments in equal number to women even in locations that are safe.

    You can take ownership of your own flexibility, meaning, through open conversations with your manager, you are encouraged to do what is needed to take care of self. One has to ensure their are accountable for their work, but also their health.

Unless you have the opportunity to work at the corporate level, do not waste your time thinking you will be able to work your way from the manufacturing plant into the corporate environment. Some departments are better than others but the moral and trust in this employer is very low among the majority of employees.

    This is all dependent on the department that you are working in. For example: a new summer hours policy was implemented for the company to help with "work-life" balance but it is only for corporate offices. This is a food-manufacturing corporation that pretty much makes it's bread and butter off hourly employees production, so why isn't there a summer hours policy for those who determine how black your bottom line will be at year end?. So, it clearly shows where they are placing their value for "work-life" balance which is an awful statement and message.

Work/life balance depends on the culture of your region and the Regional Director. Simpson offers paid maternity leave after 1 year of employment, but it’s at 50% of your base salary and maxed at $750/week.

    Paid leave can change depending on the Short Term Disability policy the company chooses. It used to be 50% for 6 weeks and the new policy is 50% for 8 weeks.

The company has not been kind to senior women. Although many have VP titles, it doesn't mean much as all the most senior roles are filled by men.

I cannot overstate how rewarding it is to work for a company with a social mission that aligns with my personal values. My colleagues and I are genuinely passionate about the work that we're doing, and that makes for a very energized, positive and dynamic work environment. I've never felt more supported on both a personal and professional level.

    At Fairygodboss, it's understood that we all have lives outside of work. While everyone works hard and is passionate about the company's mission and goals, employees are trusted to get their work done during a timeframe that works best for them. Productivity is truly valued over face time in the office, which makes managing life outside of work infinitely easier.
