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

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
