    I have been working at Talisman Energy full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Talisman has provided me with a lot of development opportunites, including an expatriate assignment and ability to work in various roles. Although many people have come and gone, there are still a lot of smart, fun and technically strong people here.

    Cons

    Too much inconsistency with senior management from actual people changes to leadership and values modelling.
    Highly complex structure and inconsistency in approaches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure leaders walk the walk and talk the talk and provide more clarity about accountabilities for the given structure (e.g. regional versus central)
