A solid company (review of experience before CNOOC takeover)

Technical Summer Student (Former Employee)
Fort McMurray, AB (Canada)

I worked at Nexen as an intern

Pros- Very intelligent and helpful people to work with
- Freedom to pursue projects as you like (depending on your manager of course)
- Fantastic culture
- Great work/life balance

Cons- Very disorganized operation (difficult to get the info you need, backtracking, etc.)
- Unstructured student work term
- Super high turnover (so loss of expertise was common)

Advice to Senior ManagementMore strategic alignment between business areas will make for a smoother operation. Define your objectives clearly and specifically, and be sure that these are communicated through the corporate ladder.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
