    Former Employee - Maintenance in Fort McMurray, AB (Canada)

    I worked at Nexen full-time (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.

    Former Employee - Process Control Co-op Engineer in Fort McMurray, AB (Canada)

    I worked at Nexen as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - the people: though there is a recognized management system, everyone is treated equally
    - company safety policy: 12 rules that are followed very strictly!
    - exposure: being at the Long Lake SAGD & Upgrader facility allowed me to witness the process first-hand. It is a completely different learning experience as compared to looking at a textbook or computer screen
    - the facility had it's first major turnaround begin in Aug 2012: this allowed me to get up close to vessels and machines and learn much more about the way things work

    Cons

    - this could be viewed as a pro too, but there was quite a bit of change in the company in my short time there. The CEO got fired the morning of my first day of work (Jan 2012), my own boos got fired 3 months after that, and the company was bought out by CNOOC in Aug 2012.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - to continue to put safety and people ahead of production, as this will ultimately lead to better production and profits
