    I have been working at Nexen full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, great work schedule (Monday-Thursday), great pay (for a company that doesn't make much money!), car pool is great compared to bussing

    Cons

    No training, no accountability, uneducated and unprofessional management, poor planning, weak leadership, cannot retain good employees, reactive not preventative, too many "retirees"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to spend the money and bring in real leaders from other companies.

    I worked at Nexen

    Pros

    Compensation is good and everything else sucks.

    Cons

    No respect for human rights and freedoms. They will kick you out regardless of performance because of political games and greediness of people who are there for long time. They would ignore abuse toward other people. Even good compensation is not worth amount of frustration you have to go through.

    I'm very glad I'm out from there !!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect for basic human rights. Shame on this company and it's management.
