    I worked at Nexen full-time

    Pros

    Good place to work people are great,

    Cons

    Middle management is a disaster. They want to micro manage. The organization is very Political. They are not above bending the rules.

    Advice to Management

    Close the offices here and move it all back to China and save a bunch of money.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Nexen (Austin, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Applied through campus recruitment website with a resume, and got accepted for an interview soon after. Interviewed on campus - very standard procedure. The interview was mostly a resume review. The interviewer was interested in my past experience so I was asked about what I did in the past and answered some simple technical questions about the subjects.
