    Gas Utility

    Engineering Project Manager (Current Employee) Toronto, ON (Canada)

    ProsStable. Relatively undemanding. Great work-life balance as a result. Lots of opportunity for internal movement. Good compensation for the work.

    ConsExtremely conservative. Misplaced focus, and constantly shifting focus. Ultra-political due to rampant nepotism and cronyism.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGreat salary

    Company values are spoken about but not actively followed by leadership.
    very "old school" in management
    low engagement - made worse when HR tries to make it look like engagement is high.

    Reasonable pay but require patience and the ability to tolerate ambiguity.

    Analyst (Current Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

    ProsThe company tends to be fairly competitive in pay and benefit. Very flexible work hours. My direct manager is actually at another location while my manager's boss resides in the same location as I am. However, my manager's boss travel lots. As a result, I pretty much work by myself and have lots of freedom.

    The company also tries its best to provide training to employees and HR supports for career development. Nonetheless, an employee himself remains the main driver for his career development.

    ConsIts onboard process can use some improvement. New employees are left to their own to find out what they should do, how they should do their job, and who should they talk to; with little direction from managers. Many managers seem to be too busy to answer questions and listen to concern, some even seem to avoiding their direct reports, but some will do their best to chat with employees if requested.

    Job performance review happen mostly once a year and employee tend to receive little feedback in between. When I request for more feedback, my manager told me that he tends to deal with matters as they happens and if he has any concern about my performance, he will for sure let me know.

    The company as a whole is very decentralized and have many regional offices. As a result, learning the org chat and getting connected with the people one needs to work with tend to be a challenge. A good portion of the employees are not good at returning e-mails or phone on a prompt manner.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe middle managers (and perhaps the senior managers as well) need to learn how to delegate work effectively and work smarter. While most managers complains that they have too much going on, I observe that many seem to be unorganized in their work. People tend to just jump from one task to another without taking the time to sit back, look at the big picture, and direct a path for the team. Meeting tend to be run longer than necessary as well. More leadership from the management would be nice.

    I believe the senior management should also implement 360 reviews, since some managers (or directors) seem to be good at managing up, but fail to pay attention to the front line employees.
