I worked at Talisman Energy as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Good compensation, nice office. Respectful and professional work environment. My work experience at Talisman has been highly valued on my resume and has helped me obtain subsequent positions. Student activities were a plus.

Company is constantly undergoing reorganization which hurts employee morale and makes for sometimes muddled and ambiguous business processes. Time pressured superiors offered limited mentoring.
