I have been working at Nexen

Pros

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

Cons

Very 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.

    I have been working at Nexen full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation. Flexible benefit packages, compressed work week options (couple of fridays off per month in exchange for slightly longer days).
    Useful in house training.

    Cons

    3 yrs of change and uncertainty have taken a toll on employee morale. Lots of retirements have opened up promotion possibilities but the company has also contracted due to selling off domestic properties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the emphasis on the core business of producing but don't abandon the socially responsible values.
