Facilities Coordinator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 August 2017
one of the busiest workplace i've ever had. i would say two people to take care the entire building is a bit pressure for me. we have to have someone to stay on their desk to answer phone calls and email and take care all client's requests for abouit 900 employess.
i've learn to manage my time and schedules right.
hardest part of this job is when you have to move furnitures during the day as they only have one service elevator.
Reserves Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 May 2016
Very poor attitude towards workers. Every day employees come to work and not knowing if they will have a job at the end of the day. Lays off were not one-offs but a daily event. Morale was very low. Employees became very cynical about all levels of management.
Administrative Assistant - VP of Operations (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 8 April 2016
I organized outlook calendars, scheduled meetings, arranged meetings rooms. I enjoyed co-ordinating and organizing air charters for Executive's field trips. I am a team player so worked well with my co-workers.
Community Relations Student (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 10 November 2015
I did an internship at Talisman in External Relations and I really enjoyed my time there. My colleagues were very friendly and helpful. I learned a lot during my time there and enjoyed the work culture.
Generally nice work environment. Work culture is difficult though. Way too much stress
Project Manager/Senior Facilities Engineer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 November 2015
Generally nice work environment. Great learning resources as well as fantastic technical support group. Senior management seemed way too distant during my time at the company. Company is very hierarchical and work culture can be toxic at times.
Fun Workplace with co-operative co-workers and users.

Exploration Geophysicist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 September 2014
In my last role before being laid off, I felt isolated from my team, could not get traction from management on initiatives that I was pushing for and despite trying, felt I wasn't contributing to the team. The list goes on. From day-to-day inactivity to upper management not delivering on promises. While lasting friendships were made and some excellent mentorship provided by a select few people, overall, Talisman is analogous to the Titanic and I regret not having the foresight to leave sooner when the opportunity had presented itself.
Very Unique leaders , very subjective, power tripping.
Deskside Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 31 March 2014
I was insulted by the one of my new lead guy. this guy was throwing some insults comment and critizing my resolved tickets. only my resolved tickets. i feel so bad that I can bully back becAuse this is brought by my awesome team lead. this guy forgot to realize that if you been refer or brought in you must show promising attitude just to be fair to the company because if havent done the company hiring process and qualified skillset. this guy promising? this is the guy you will push your self to learn voodoo magic because he was tolerated on his attitude.if I compare him to a doctor he can only cure a running nose but paid more a surgeon. entry level skills and worst attitude. I have three team lead experienced at Talisman. first was good he always appreciated what I did that no one did and mentioned that I dont come with a question I come with an answer. feel goods to hear that. second lead was good too, he told me I in top 20 on my level in calgary, I know its not true but feels good. third lead. disturbing!!! one time I was being blame that she was been qustion by IT bosses why only one person know this thing. she said if we continue this thing we will start losing people. unbelievable you been scolded because you know more things. two months later she fired and said I cant tell you. its beyond my call. AMAZING! I knew the reason she dont like me personally and they assume I was brutally honest but they cant tell me because they only assume. because she havent ask the person that blew on them if i Mention. i am the one help on my weekend that ask by my lead boss groupmore... and this trigger/ causes them to fire me because they assume or my lead doesnt like me becuae ahe having her first impression symdrome? she doent communicate as a lead, no direction from at all. missed to reply an email. no support but pushback and irritation I accepted it. when i leave the building I sent goodbye and some people with position not included on my email called me and convince me to call integrity. after two days I called integrity and tell them they have huge security problem but this IT dept instead of saying thank you. despite they fire me, I still reminded them what they missed, they put me on blacklisted not thinking thag calling integrity is the CEO initiative. brilliant mind. they blacklisted me for the benefits of the company and also my departmemt very abusive action. this is not departmemt secret. i told my lead but she doesnt reply because she said drop this case, amazing again! sad to say after I follow what CEO is encouraging to do and benefits them what they did to me is prevent not to get a job let me suffer and my family by doing them good even I was fired. if I knew that taking that phone call will make my carrier into quicksand I will never ever cooperate. my department missed to think the objective of the call they called unprofessional but who showing professional here? as far as I know secret/confidential will be the company's advantage compare to others, anything but good. keeping secret that you missed that causes company money is not a secret, unfair to the company that payin you. and integrity is the right way to tell because you fire me without reason, only assuming. ask the people you assume I contacted before hurting people. the most hurting is the upper management chooses to silence after saying "Thank you" I will not exchange my doomed life and give family a rough life just to received a THANK YOU! equality and transparency??? not even close. from my happy personality turns into a monster because of this Unfair treatment!less
