Topics regarding layoffs at Cenovus Energy
I’ve heard about numerous people walking out the door recently to other companies. Pretty soon it might just be easier to call Suncor Cenovus 2.0, most of our employees are ending up over there. Maybe they know how to treat employees a bit better or... — read more
I was applying in hope to go work for Repsol here in Calgary. Long story short, they got with a 30% cut today... Well, that is it for now...
I absolutely refuse to work in a cubicle!!!!!!!!! Management can take my office ... but they can never take my Freedom!!! Freedom!!! (In Scottish accent) (First interview if tomorrow across the street .. I’m all fired up now!..) — read more
Cenovus Executives get a bad rap on this site, but what about the people who are meant to be providing oversight? The Board approved the COP acquisition. The Board approved our disastrous hedging strategy, and the tall new buildings we get to shuffle... — read more
So much for the $20 here we come crowd. Quite silent now aren’t they? I still haven’t seen our VP on our floor in his cubicle since we moved in, not sure where he goes all day. I mean I expect never to see our EVP on our floor, he’s never been around... — read more
Once again as some people have been shown the door 'new employees' are arriving. How do you get approval to hire while letting go?? New guy hired in community relations. Is that really the priority?
A couple A&D folks let go today after yesterday being informed cuts coming to Deep Basin. More to come I'm sure. — read more
Must mean everyone is happy and motivated! We knew the new leadership and new building would make everyone happy!
As a way to save money we will be rotating power throughout the building. Power will be on each floor for two hours at a time. So you either have to get your work done during that time or follow the power as it moves. Thank you for your attention and... — read more
Now that open offices are the norm, their limitations have become clear. Research indicates that removing partitions is actually much worse for collaborative work and productivity than closed offices ever were. But something as expensive and... — read more
Onward and upwards, $20 here we come!!!
Just got my invite to BigZs please don’t unionize on me party. Let’s have a beer and forget about us marginalizing you all these years
You know what we do really well? Do blog posts about how the job is about more than the money. Easier said when you made $7 million in 2018 and meanwhile the majority of the company is struggling to get measly raise. For a company that’s all about... — read more
Christina Lake operations and maintenance. The time has come for us to step up as one and have a real say in our working conditions. Let’s open the dialogue and start having important conversations with each other about which direction our careers... — read more
Is their people strategy so filled with 1984 Orwellian double speak that it leaves you wanting to gag? Here’s an idea. People are leaving as they are being told for last 6 years no raises and other companies are now comparable for salary. That and no... — read more
can't believe how this company keeps screwing up! did you know that some of our private HR data in Workday was exposed in sharepoint! can't trust this company anymore!
Judging by the recent accounting job postings it looks like a few people jumped ship after the bonus payout. It's not surprising given the toxic inept leadership in that area.
Good Luck!... — read more
I am optimistic that CVE share prices will get back to $20 or higher. With the implementation of strategic cost cutting measures in the deep basin, continued disciplined operations at FCCL, and heck maybe even market access (it’s bound to happen... — read more
They had to layoff that giant head out front of the Bow. Enjoy your cubicles.
I always think this time is funny/interesting because so many people mouth off about getting their bonus and getting out. But my take on this is CVE doesn’t really see much of an exodus after bonuses are given out as there still isn’t much employment... — read more
Again, here is your HR and mgmt calling names, insulting people, belittling them. Whatever you do don’t try and understand or get to the root cause of employee unhappiness. That might mean taking real action vs covering it over. I appreciate Alex... — read more
Oilsands staff had a few people let go.
What do you guys think? A new carrot on the stick? The chance of us hitting $20 is extremely low. It costs CVE nothing to announce this incentive program. Maybe it will help Alex dump his personal investment in CVE?
I have heard a lot of negative comments about the new space. How bad could they really be?

Vibrating floors, vibrating furnitures, dangerous work environment... people were told to stay home or work remotely. Well done!
(Prerequisite: Not part of CVE management or your typical O&G HR flunkie). I have a funny theory about some of you guys (not all of you) with your criticisms and snide comments levelled towards Drew Z and I don't think I am wrong. A good number of... — read more
See what I mean ? When mgmt can avoid doing something dumb to annoy the employees they stop posting. You’ve made it almost two days without going out of your way to get anyone riled up. Try for a week now and it should keep dying down.
Classic CVE mgmt response. Ignore the problem of your top ten award for worst place to work. 400+ reviews are not a few whiners telling you there’s a problem here. What you don’t get is it’s the good people who will leave, not the bottom. That’s why... — read more
We just had two people accept other offers even before they got their bonuses. You know it’s bad when they’re so desperate to get another job they leave their bonus behind. And they were both good people.
So is this the future? We build bigger and taller structures like The Bow and Brookfield, only to stuff professional and technical staff into smaller and smaller spaces. I don't understand how management continues to get fleeced and sold on this... — read more
Me culture to we culture? Let’s see: you make our company rank in the 10 worst companies to work for you keep your chunky bonuses while cut bonuses for the working population you sit there in your all male podium promoting 10 male VPs into the most... — read more
No Alex CNRL did not do across the board 10% wage cuts. It was graduated to income level and their executive took a 20% cut first. And there were no layoffs. Contrast that with CVE where minions took a bonus cut and the executive kept themselves... — read more
I think our business whiner I mean newsmaker CEO of the year should have to also sit in one of those sardine cans they are calling collaborative workspaces. Anyway, I’m pretty excited if this means I can literally work from wherever the hell I want... — read more
I see the Calgary Herald has named AlPo "Alberta's Business Newsmaker of 2018". What kind of a BS title is that? Should be called top whiner of 2018. I wonder how much CVE paid to get that article in the paper. It appears AlPo loves the media... — read more
