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

    Pros

    The company offered many interesting courses regarding the theory and applications in oil industry, as well as courses for self-improvement. The department I worked for also provided me with several different interesting projects to work on.

    Cons

    Some of the downtime in between projects left time to yourself. But you must make the best of this time for independent study.
