    I have been working at Nexen

    Pros

    They listen, they are collaborative, and some of the best people I have worked with in the industry.

    Cons

    Going through a lot of changes to try and right size their budgets for enabling services like IT and Accounting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IT can't function without money and people, things you take for granted like infrastructure is going to break soon.

    Former Intern - Summer Student in Calgary, AB (Canada)

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

    Pros

    First of all, there were around 80 other interns and summer students starting at the same time, so lots of group activities throughout the summer and you meet a lot of awesome people. Every student has a manager looking after them and mine was very helpful. I personally got an amazing project that was quite challenging and took me the whole summer. Also, competitive pay for sure.

    Cons

    Some of the other summer students found that there wasn't enough work for them so they ended up bored a lot of the time.

    Pros

    The company offered many interesting courses regarding the theory and applications in oil industry, as well as courses for self-improvement. The department I worked for also provided me with several different interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Some of the downtime in between projects left time to yourself. But you must make the best of this time for independent study.
