One of Alberta top Best 75 places to work.
Executive Administrative Assistant, Exploration (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 October 2013
This company is currently re-structuring thier organization. The security level is below average at the moment. I have currently been laid off from Taqa North, due to recent lay-offs.

It was one of the best places that I have indeed encountered. My Director for whom I worked with, was an great example of what an executive should be. She is without a doubt, one of the greatest mentors I have enjoyed to work with. The benefits and salary were also top notch in its industry.
Pros
Benefits, such as vacation time and flex time. Long Term Retention Plan
Cons
Company Down Sizing

Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Calgary10 February 2015
In my time at tala I worked for 5 different Managers, Did learn different styles and how to interpret them.
I did like the staff that I worked with, we had a team approach which allowed all members to contribute.
Working with other departments can be challenging, definitely required negotiation and collaboration skills.
No 2 days were ever the same, variety kept it interesting and challenging.
Pros
My opinion did seem to matter.
Cons
Disconnecting work life was difficult for me personally.

Joint Venture Accountant (Former Employee) –  Downtown Calgary, AB24 November 2013
Great company to work at ,unfortunately due to sustained low Natural Gas prices they have had to reduce staff,sell properties to ensure the longer term viability of the company. My typical day consisted of dealing with Partners requesting backup and clarification of items invoiced to them and may include reversing and re-billing some of those items.
Pros
Positive working environment .
Cons
Volume of incorrect billings, volume of requests for backup!

I really enjoyed my time here. I like working for a smaller company, where people remember who you are. You are not lost in the crowd.
