    I worked at Nexen full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good Group of People, which are very welcoming and friendly. The new Chinese company that is taking over hopefully improve the way the place is run.
    The benefits and bonuses offered are one of the ways to forget about the problems.

    Cons

    Many individuals are in positions they are unqualified for and because of that work processes/ procedures are horrible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get fly in/ fly out, you may be able to get qualified people on site that way.

    I worked at Nexen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They have many of the right programs in place.
    The people hired are top in their fields.
    Great team members.
    Good compensation, average benefits in comparison to large producers

    Cons

    Management does not always support or backup their employees.
    Management rarely follows through on Ethics complaints although they have a great program in writing.
    There are few balance and checks in most of their programs, so allows leaders to run their own "companies"
    Do not do work load manage, so no work/life balance and excessive overtime involved, no reward but is an expectation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make every manager accountable to their employees and the corporate programs.
