    Great experience, fast paced and at times demanding

    I worked at AltaGas full-time

    Pros

    Great proving ground as they at times give you a heavy workload, and if you manage it well it is rewarding. Perhaps a function of being understaffed but lower level employees get challenging work and earn experience that you would only get exposure to as a more senior employee elsewhere.

    Cons

    Demanding at times due the feeling of being understaffed. Salary could be more competitive. Top heavy organization in certain areas and not always a meritocracy for employee recognition.

    Advice to Management

    With the strong focus on growth don't get too tunnel visioned in the process and remember to stop and share the wealth with the guys at ground zero once in a while.

    Pros

    Senior management has conservative business approach regarding capital decisions, but has a forward looking decision making style (investing in renewable energy projects). This combination has provided for a healthy cash flow statement, while establishing a base for the future.

    Cons

    A corporate culture of no lay offs means all areas are a little (and during good times a lot) understaffed. Absorbing new acquisitions has made it difficult for some staff to maintain a work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Examine (and put in place) a way(s) to grow the company while maintaining adequate staffing levels (to prevent burn out).
