    Nice place to collect a pay cheque...but If you are entrepreneurial and driven, look elsewhere.

    Current Employee - Planning/Economics in Uxbridge, England
    Current Employee - Planning/Economics in Uxbridge, England

    I have been working at Nexen as a contractor (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - 2 fridays per month off
    - nice pension
    - great work/life balance
    - country club atmosphere, off-sites at expensive hotels

    Cons

    - no clear strategy, no long-term targets ever provided
    - heavy operational focus with little clue about the future
    - company is run by accountants who are obsessed with precision but do not understand the big picture
    - many people very busy working on things that do not add value, overstaffed
    - employee rank stack system is largely subjective, managers have no authority to properly rate their own people as other managers can overrule
    - zero autonomy, all decisions made at the top by arguably unqualified people
    - current power struggle between Calgary head office and UK division where the money is made
    - ongoing commitment to fund disaster mega-project which vacuums cash from the rest of the company. Poor capital allocation.
    - poor communication to staff following CNOOC takeover
    - Calgary management has not yet grasped that Nexen is now a subsidiary of another company. Current org structure makes no sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have a lot of talented people. Give some autonomy to staff and good things are likely to happen.
