    disagree whole heartedly. From Devon to CNRL it was like heaven to hell.
    There's a bunch of beyonders who made that transition. We should have a meetup.
    We must seek to understand each other, and even when we cannot, remain kind.

    A buddy of mine echoed similar sentiments, sounds like Devon people he knows are continually streaming out to other opportunities

    For sure, but that just means it's different. Lots of Devon people were coddled babies. Or at least I was.

    Yeah, I know a couple of long term CNRL folks and they seem happy with the company.

    The great crew change is hitting other "heavy" industries like mining:

    With the avg age of a farmer being 55 nowadays, it's also gonna hit there.

    Yeah in like 25 years, when they reach the age at which normal farmers start to slow down their pace.

    No, most 'farmers' are actually already at that age.. But canada is including all these new age hippies with a goat, 4 chickens and a llama as 'new farmers', which is skewing the numbers. The actual productive farmers are much older.

    CNRL has always been a relatively lean and very well managed operation. I say relatively, because you could still take a long lunch, 2 coffee breaks and get your work done stress free. I actually thought the pace was kind of slow, hence why I left. Having chatted with some acquaintances that used to work at Devon, I’m not even sure what they actually did all day.

    Funny enough, UniFor is doing a union drive at Devon Jackfish right now. I think the results of the vote are coming out in the next couple of weeks.
