Learned a lot but it was time to go

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

I worked at Talisman Energy full-time for more than 5 years

ProsChallenging work
Good coworkers
Reasonable pay and benefits
Some great leaders
Lots of development opportunities if you have the right leader

ConsUnrealistic expectations regarding volume of work
Expected to work long hours no matter what
Too many leaders brought in externally with little understanding of Calgary mkt or Canada

Advice to Senior ManagementMost of the managment I knew have left or retired. Need to clarity on business direction, reverse the underinvestment in pension plan. Look at organization structure. Leaders need to get to know their teams.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
