    I have been working at Talisman Energy full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I work outside of Canada so I do not have much experience with other Canadian companies, but I really like our company's culture. It is a flat organization, relaxed and with a great work-life balance.... Most international colleagues I work with are very nice and polite. I enjoy coming to work every day because I like what I do. It is challenging but fun. There are lots of things to learn. And I used to work more and get paid less in the past, so how can I complain about Talisman?

    Cons

    Talisman cannot offer a long-term career. The possibility of growth is limited depending on the function, unless one is willing to relocate to Canada where the HQ is. There are assets being sold, and... there is an uncertainty about the future due to a possibility of a take-over. But I knew this when I took the job, so it does not bother me as life is unpredictable.

    Advice to Management

    We are pressured to cut down on G&A and reduce costs even such, for example, as personal development for staff, but then the management continues travelling extensively internationally, including the... first class. How does it make sense? Is the first class really necessary for each flight above 6 hours? Furthermore, the company spends ridiculous amounts on extensive expat contracts and related significant costs and benefits for their managers. Is it really necessary in developed countries where a local work force is available?
