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

Pros

Lots of opportunity. People are busy, engaged and excited about the changes. Leaders are optimistic, energetic and share this openly with their teams.

Cons

Sometimes not what you know but who you know. Some infighting on teams as people are jockeying for positions with the changes. Can be unpleasant

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to Hal! Give more women leadership roles. Place greater emphasis to live your corp values and hire qualified candidates instead of somebody's friend who isn't really qualified

    Give more importance to growth and leadership at a lower level and value employees more
