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

Pros

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

Cons

Unrealistic 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 ManagementAdvice

Most 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.
