Be Careful

Chemist (Current Employee)
Fort McMurray, AB (Canada)

ProsVery nice people, excellent co-workers, great pay, car pool is awesome

ConsHR department is so far disconnected from the needs of the company, its very easy for someone to "backstab" you so you always have to be on guard, not much opportunity for career growth

Advice to Senior ManagementGet a handle on your HR or you will lose all your good people

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Nice place to collect a pay cheque...but If you are entrepreneurial and driven, look elsewhere.

    Planning/Economics (Current Employee)
    Uxbridge, England (UK)

    I have been working at Nexen as a contractor for more than 5 years


    Pros: - 2 fridays per month off - nice pension - great work/life… Cons: - no clear strategy, no long-term targets ever provided - heavy operational focus with little clue about the future - company is run by accountants who are… Advice to Senior Management: You have a lot of talented people. Give some autonomy… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
