I worked at Nexen full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Decent pay, Nice building, generally well meaning company, but...

Cons

The US version of this company is kind of on the ropes. Loosing a lot of staff, for a variety of pretty good reasons, and though they are no longer an immediate extension of the canadian way, it still ends up being the default management style.
I dont think it is unfair to say this companies future is definitely a question mark, a previous poster called it a "Bright Future" and I hope for the sake of those who remain that is true, but that was not the consensus opinion of the average individual when I was there.
I would strongly suggest you ask a lot of questions at the interview about staffing, future, scope.
The good news is that all of this bodes well for negotiating your pay. Trust me, they need you, just dont think you are going to retire here.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Break out of the Canadian mold, you are carrying a fair amount of dead weight in low level managers who are out of their element.
Best of luck

    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.

    No opinion of CEO
