Pretty good place to work

Network Consultant (Former Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

ProsI was a contractor with Nexen, I found it relaxed, easy to get along with people, fun team, good company location

ConsStressful at times,
Pay as a contractor should have been better, but I think that was more the recruitment companies fault
Management jumped up and down at lots of small issues
IT managers needed to be a little more understanding in terms of technical competence

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of some layers of management. Seems to be managers for everything.
Oncall pager is a real pain - needs to make better use of the outsourced vendor.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
