I worked at Talisman Energy as a contractor (Less than a 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 Management

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

    I worked at Talisman Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good and caring co-workers that want to do a good job

    Cons

    Management that does not value people and no leadership with large gaps in communication, direction and understanding of how to walk the talk. Lack of trust, no future, lip service, and treat people as an expense. Very silo organization with fake speeches, fear for job, uncertainly and many people leaving to seek a better future. There values / principles is just a paper on a wall.

    Advice to Management

    Sell company; it might have a future in someone else's hands. Also, stop giving yourself millions of dollars in salary + bonus for very poor performance.
