Not entirely what I expected however there are some really great people to work with here.

I have been working at Nexen

ProsSmall community of people. Easy access to senior regional management. Good location in Houston. Offers two Fridays off per month

ConsVery limited opportunity for growth. The company is working on developing a growth strategy for technical roles but there doesn't seem to be any plans for non-technical roles. Could be organized more efficiently and often has poor utilization of people resources.

Promotions happen only if you are in the right team, otherwise your career will be stagnant and rot

I have been working at Nexen full-time for more than 5 years


Pros: Pay is good, best commute in the oil sands Cons: They prefer to hire from outside the company for many leadership roles. Management does not understand the job scope of those who work for… Advice to Senior Management: Trust the people who work for you. They will be great leaders. Promote from within do not hire externally… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
