    I worked at Nexen full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Got to work with some amazing people during my time here. Company offered good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Company is getting worse and worse. Morale is non-existent in some groups. There is almost no opportunities for promotion or career development. Layoffs happen frequently and coming to work gradually became a guessing game of whose name will get crossed out.

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent, promote people who deserve it
