This company has been bought out and changed significanlty since my time there. According to staff that I still keep in touch with job security is a growing concern there. This is because new ownership are focused on the bottom line.

This was BIG company culture that was easy to get lost in if you didn't make a point of standing out. A typical day could be spent head down working in the office or interacting and collaborating with colleagues. It was important to take all the training and mentoring that was available as it has paid off.

Working at Talisman Energy was priceless. The team and people I worked with were positive and supportive. The hardest part of the job was that due to current situation with the price of oil. The company had to do a workforce reduction. The hardest part was having to leave a great environment. I could not not put it to one most enjoyable part of the job because there were many. There was never a typical day at work. That is what it made such a great place to work in.
Talisman is a large multinational oil company based in Calgary.
Senior Regional Geologist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 January 2015
I worked for Talisman in Sudan after they bought out State Petroleum Corporation. The project in Sudan was a JV between CNODC, Petronas, SUDAPET and Talisman and each company contributed personnel to the project.
Talisman is no longer a JV parter in this project; their WI was bought out by an Indian oil company several years ago.

It was BP Canada when I started, David Clayton as President, then James Buckee. Talisman was an exciting fast moving company full of opportunity for a young woman with lots of enthusiasm and energy. I did very well with Talisman and worked with some of the nicest people in the industry. It was a wonderful opportunity - beginning at reception as entry level and working up to Geology and Engineering departments supporting management and professionals. Such a pleasure to work with many exciting projects and good people.
Great management teams, wonderful corporate culture, growing company
