    I worked at Talisman Energy as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    -tons of training courses to take
    -people are generally nice
    -compensation
    -location of the Calgary office
    -bistro on 34th fl in the Calgary office

    Cons

    -employees are disposable
    -managers do not know how to grow or develop their employees
    -decreases employee morale based on favouritism
    -too much work with no significant purpose or value
    -no clear vision
    -HR has no idea what they are doing and do not practice what they preach at all
    -no place for advancement unless you are considered their "superstar" (then those people get everything)
    -too many useless and unproductive meetings that end up draining everybody
    -too much change that doesn't seem to ever get anywhere positive
    -high turnover
    -does not help employees try to reach their potential because everyone is too focused on office politics and trying to climb up the corporate ladder for themselves
    -will disregard their entry-level employees
    -too many VP's that do not seem to know how to lead a team, all they have are their egos
    -management only values "work horses" who can sit and work, work, work with no voice
    -not a good place if you want to be in a creative, supportive, entrepreneurial environment
    -they do not know how to recognize real talent and let go of great people with tons of potential

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Take care of your people no matter what level they are at. Your job is to help them grow and develop. Do not favourite certain individuals over others- be fair. Also, provide opportunities for your employees to increase motivation at work.

    I have been working at Talisman Energy

    Pros

    the type of work I did was good and most of the people I met were pretty nice but over all it was an average culture

    Cons

    they don't recognize contributions and achievement and they shaft their junior staff pretty bad. It's too bad since they lost some good talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't shoot yourself on the foot and shaft the young talent. It's not a bad place to work if the company is doing fine.

    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO
