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.
