Experiences after layoffs?

Are there people who haven’t found much better jobs after last year’s cuts? How many have had their careers ruined after layoffs? Almost everyone I know says they are much better off now, but the question is do people romanticize the truth as... — read more

More work, less pay

I’m so tired of being expected to pick up more work left behind by people who were laid off and not being compensated for it. It’s not enough that we have to fear layoffs all the time, but we also have to fear what our job will look like after the... — read more

Nexen's biggest problems

Nexen’s biggest problem at the Long Lake site in Fort Mc was spending the 6 billion at the phase 1 site when what it should have done was spend that money at phase 2 in Anzac to begin with. It would have been far more profitable which would have... — read more

More layoffs at Nexen?

heard there were some layoffs in the office this week. Anyone know anything? Posted in an old thread yesterday, I think, but no answers so far. Since I'd like to know the answer as well, I was hoping bumping it to the front of the queue might get... — read more

Questioning Management

I found that Nexen had many "Nexen babies" which are people who got jobs at Nexen right after school, got promoted through the ranks at Nexen and never worked at any other companies. I don't know if these same people would succeed at other companies... — read more

More layoffs

Keep your heads down folks. Unless you are connected to hr mafia. Not everyone can come from finance and become a compensation manager. They are few of them there. And they know who is next. But it's not them. Sad and heartbreaking. Fang, please pay... — read more

Nexen in a nutshell

The best thing Nexen ever did for my career is let me go. I wasn't surprised when it happened, as I was never part of the close clique that exists at the company. I must say, watching the interactions of that group sure was interesting. Best buds... — read more

Stick a fork in me…

I held out as long as I could but it’s time to face the facts. No matter how much you hope things will change - they won’t. I’ve put in a number of years within Nexen with the knowledge and experience to back it up so when someone in upper management... — read more

Low morale

I never thought a company can have such low morale but Nexen has proven me wrong. I don’t know what I was thinking in taking a position here. Had I known the office politics and a type of culture that I was walking into, I'd ran the other way... — read more

There are more layoffs coming. Not sure why people say the layoffs have stopped because they started shortly after the CNOOC purchase of Nexen and have continued for the last 4+ years. There were about 50 people in Q3/Q4 of this year. They are always... — read more

Nexen layoffs

The Nexen layoffs will come in some quantities over the next several weeks (say less than 50 per week so as not to get on the news). Major layoffs coming in 2018.
