Not a bad Company to work for ,
Everyday you learned something new as jobs changed so quickly.we had a good safety culture.

Hardest part of the job was being the one to give bad news or telling people off.

Management originally left us to do our job which was great but recently management wanted to be involved more but are not up to speed in what we do

you get to learn so much as an intern and you will be given the tasks of a full time employee so you get the real feel of what it is like to be an engineer in the petroleum industry.

The day starts with normal routine permits review and Authorizing along with following with field operators to make sure that the field is running in safe manner. Management are help full in term of assisting, but bad in evaluation. Co-worker are excellent in team work. the hardest part of the job is to manage so many jobs in short period. For example, operators should cover around 180 wells perday.
Pros
Very good place to gain experiance
Cons
Poor Evaluation

Working throughout the summer as an intern gave me an opportunity to understand the essence of the workplace in a business environment.

I have learned how to deal with issues that were difficult to tackle with, who to seek help from as well the department were helpful from the manager to my co-workers. If I was lost, confused or unaware of something there was help provided.


Sometimes, I found difficulty in collecting data which gave me a hard time but it slowly eased out.


I enjoyed our lunches, it is where everyone let down their serious faces and just talked about anything as well I got given tips on how to improve my work.
Pros
Friendly environment
