Double the work load, everyone stressed out, COVID rules... Great way to eliminate staff with no packages.. Many have resumes out.. No packages no thank you!! Cenovus is a dead horse...
Topics regarding layoffs at Cenovus Energy
Don’t use real names and give an explanation. This could be fun! Help build morale by sharing common frustrations.
No legal agreement, but we clicked a button to accept this agreement that the company subsequently reneged on. Any lawyers on here ? Do we have a class action claim if shares reach target
When people ask me about getting laid off, I usually say that I could hardly wait to be laid off and that I will finally get some relief. However, I basically feel devastated and very angry at this company. Was it really necessary to lay off so... — read more
Best thing to happen big package+lots of rrsps!! Freedom of retiring at age 50 as a millionaire with 0 stress from work now!! Cheers
HR dept and AP might have the upper hand right now and cause us to work x3 and non stop to hang onto our jobs out of fear in a covid downturn while removing incentives like the 20 for 20 and laying off good people, but the tables will turn soon. ... — read more
Time to do the final cleanup!! We are expecting cuts in operations by mid June.. Hopefully this is the final round.. It is very tiring and depressing never knowing whats around the corner!!
As an experienced person who spent several years with CL I can attest that now people are so unraveled it is quite concerning. The management state " please keep your mind on task" - REALLY??? This is just a written comment to protect their friggin`... — read more
The culture at Christine Lake started going down hill the moment T.L was hired as a coordinator. Christina lake use to be a place of happiness until he started systematically breaking down the culture. T.L was then promoted . He promoted people who... — read more
Was laid off in last round, best thing that could have happened!! This company has had ongoing layoffs for years finally was my turn!! Got a great package!! Can retire worry and debt free.. This company had slowly drained me emotionally and... — read more
I wish we could at least drop the talking points. This merger was all about the balance sheet of CK holdings, everything else is bonus. However both companies were turkeys and this new company will go the way of Dome Oil after its HBOG purchase.
I'm a "legacy Husky" person and have a few observations about the new place so far. First, A LOT of what is said on this page is 100% true. It's really helped me understand what's happening and not get so unnerved by it, so thanks to everyone for... — read more
There's so much hate for the company here. I'm curious if Cenovus was always this hated by its employees or is this a new development due to the latest layoffs? I haven't noticed anything like this before, but I'll admit to not being that observant... — read more
2020 Total Executive Compensation: Alex: $9.5M Jon: $3.9M Drew: $3.1M Harbir: $2.9M Alan: $2.6M Total Top 5: $22M Not to mention what the other EVPs, SVPs, VPs, Directors, etc. earned...
This company has issues man! It dosent honor it’s commitments. They gave us 20 for 20 and now just took it away and gave us something inferior in dollars and unachievable. 20 for 20 was a one times salary. Now lucky if we get 20% I did... — read more
I’ve really had enough and it’s time to get out of here. I felt relief as soon as I made my decision. I am considering between two solid options for the next job and now it has occurred to me that there is nothing more this company could do to change... — read more
Looks like those of us who were retained by the new organization are getting upwards of a 30% bonus if we hit merger targets. I wonder how much we earned through all these layoffs.
Alex, you are delusional. Our Husky management literally and regularly tells us to sit down and shut up. Buddy you were asking the wrong people about our culture over at Husky. They love it and we hate it. Top down and sit on your hands and shut up... — read more
Sick swag. Im getting my CVE spoon asap!!!
Still not even close to keeping me here!. I’m gone the first chance I get!
Many reports of more employees getting let go given no packages.. Brace yourself its getting dirty now that the packages are from Cenovus!! Not Legacy Husky or Legacy Cenovus!! More layoffs were done this week under the radar!!
They claimed we needed layoffs. Fine. If there's fat, I agree it needs to be cut. Only, they didn't cut the fat. They cut the people who were doing the work that can't be cut. The work that was conveniently distributed to the rest of us despite of us... — read more
Why am I getting up this morning to headlines saying Alex axed the sale of Husky retail because Husky didn't know it's value? Is he delusional? He wanted to pay nothing to for it and Hong Kong decided to try and sell it again instead of giving it... — read more
What shocks me the most is how CLT doesn’t believe there’s a major issue out there in the workforce. They just sit there and think there are only 10 people posting on this site.. just a few ship disturbers. Incredible how out of touch with own... — read more
Only for job security and to stand up to the management bullies?
I come from legacy Husky and not unlink Cenovus, we had also had a few layoff rounds in the past few years that ended up on the news. Somehow though, they weren't as bad because we had some sense of a team and support. I was moved out of my... — read more

CRNL Tourmaline Tide Water ???
How long until F.C and C.L. start going down the union road again? Staff must all be nervous seeing the never ending parade of cuts year after year. :( :(
I was affected in the March round and I was with subsurface thermal team on Husky side. The March communication said some staff would get advanced notice of their termination ( I guess for some roles that the company thinks transition of... — read more
Between January & March engineers took a significant hit at Husky/Cenovus. Despite being told the majority of the duplication was in Calgary, a significant number of Professional Engineers lost their jobs in Lloydminster, Grande Prairie, etc. But... — read more
eBay and Skype, AOL and Time Warner, AT&T and BellSouth Corporation, Microsoft and NOKIA... I try to remember all the awful M&A, but I think Cenovus/ Husky is the worst merger or at least at the very top of the worst mergers ever. Maybe I’m being... — read more
Alex just doesn’t understand that no one would post on these sites if they felt heard by their leaders. It is a pure sign of failure at the executive level that any employee past or present even puts one post on here. Feel free to let me know... — read more
Management is now planning a large change this quarter!! They are going to see who fits in to their new company and the ones that don't unfortunately will be gone!! Another 400-500 planned with no warning!! This is the new Cenovus rotating layoffs... — read more
Is there any optimist here to tell us that Cenovus will be back on track? Unfortunately, I do not see a place for optimism anywhere in this company.
I try not to care about this company and where it is going because I can’t change anything except create even more stress for myself. Every day I repeat to myself that I am only here for the paycheck and that the time has long passed when work here... — read more
In the new Cenovus workplace flexibility survey, everyone please say we want to work from home 100% of the time. So we can avoid toxic office culture and get work done from home remotely.
If you were laid off, would you ever consider reapplying for a job here if an opportunity presented itself?
Quote: “The Daimler-Benz and Chrysler is regularly used by MBA courses as the textbook example of how culture clashes will inevitably lead to the failure of a deal. It has been said in some quarters that the two cultures were too different to ever... — read more
Am I the only one that is looking forward to seeing how this all plays out? The rats are going to feast on eachother. You don't get to that rank without being a psychopath and when a psychopath has it's back against the wall, drama always ensues. If... — read more
