    Pros

    I was a contractor with Nexen, I found it relaxed, easy to get along with people, fun team, good company location

    Cons

    Stressful at times,
    Pay as a contractor should have been better, but I think that was more the recruitment companies fault
    Management jumped up and down at lots of small issues
    IT managers needed to be a little more understanding in terms of technical competence

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of some layers of management. Seems to be managers for everything.
    Oncall pager is a real pain - needs to make better use of the outsourced vendor.
