Neutral Outlook
Approves of CEO

I have been working at Nexen full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great benefits, decent base pay
Good career advancement opportunities
Great at giving back to the community, and offers employees days off to volunteer

Cons

Very top-heavy and far too high of G&A for the production levels
Unmotivated employee base now (that 5 years ago was much more satisfied)
More concerned with appeasing the masses than in retaining and rewarding the top performers
Fairly uptight environment

Advice to Management

Too top-heavy -- too many VPs for size of company
