Talisman not a fun place
Former employee (Former Employee), Calgary, ABApril 17, 2013
Pros: flex days.
Cons: company has no direction. leadership does not live the company values
Senior leadership is weak. Company is constantly "re-defining" itself. Very few women in senior management position (15%). Very little opportunity for advancement.

Likes to lay people off after returning from maternity leave or sick leave.

Company does not value people
Supervisor (Former Employee), Calgary, CAMay 14, 2013
Cons: no leadership; short-term outlook
Leadership does not exist with lack of alignment & communication gaps between all levels; culture is very reactive. Lack of respect for people and not walking the talk on company values. Very much short-term focus on cost reductions and telling people to only execute, perform and deliver better; silo mentality & structure. There are pockets of good – more... people, but most of the good people have left or are leaving. A sinking ship with no future. – less
