    Former Employee - Staff Compensation Analyst in Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I worked at Nexen full-time (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.

    Former Intern - Technical Summer Student in Fort McMurray, AB (Canada)

    I worked at Nexen as an intern

    Pros

    - Very intelligent and helpful people to work with
    - Freedom to pursue projects as you like (depending on your manager of course)
    - Fantastic culture
    - Great work/life balance

    Cons

    - Very disorganized operation (difficult to get the info you need, backtracking, etc.)
    - Unstructured student work term
    - Super high turnover (so loss of expertise was common)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More strategic alignment between business areas will make for a smoother operation. Define your objectives clearly and specifically, and be sure that these are communicated through the corporate ladder.
