I worked at Talisman Energy as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Good compensation, nice office. Respectful and professional work environment. My work experience at Talisman has been highly valued on my resume and has helped me obtain subsequent positions. Student activities were a plus.

Cons

Company is constantly undergoing reorganization which hurts employee morale and makes for sometimes muddled and ambiguous business processes. Time pressured superiors offered limited mentoring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Your long term employees can add knowledge and wisdom. They are valuable.
    - Change should begin at the top. Lead by example.
    - Walk the walk and talk the talk. If you have a women's initiative, then ensure that your company structure reflects that.
