    I worked at Spectra Energy as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    None... Well they are close to a bar... For you to drink your sorrows away after your day at work.

    Cons

    People spend more time finding reasons and excuses to not work than actually working, especially in Services Supply Chain. The Manager only worried about taking other people down than doing her job. Nothing ever gets done especially in meeting and employees just pass all the work onto contract workers to do. Worst place to work if you have any type of motivation, it will only slowly suck your life out of you. And if you are anything other than white you are doomed and will be stick doing the grunt work without any advancement while you see others doing nothing and complaining about their work load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is nothing here I can say that they don't already know.

    I have been working at Spectra Energy full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Some people are pleasant to work with

    Cons

    Entire company is made up of all contractors. Rarely do you meet someone who is a permanent employee. When traveling you are expected to pay for all expenses and wait 2-3 weeks for reimbursement from your staffing agency. Job will always be contract so hardly no one goes permanent. Insufficient training and the moment you speak your concerns or have ideas there immediately shot down or in my case invite you to corporate to teach them how to do your job responsibilities and then be laid off 2 weeks later.no real direction, aging workforce, not organized at all. The will assure you they don't do politics but trust me it's there. If u like traveling and feeling like your job is never complete then this place is for you. Salary is way below industry pay because they factor in traveling costs as apart of your salary. Traveling that they enforce.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you come to someone and ask ways to make things more efficient then to turn down there ideas because you do a group vote who are made up of people not comfortable with changes then look for better ways to manage. Industry is always changing holding back talent because some people are uncomfortable or have egos shouldn't be giving there opinion. Also nothing more cowardly when u schedule a meeting to talk about concerns then cancel it and then keep rescheduling only to drag it out because u know they are being laid off and then say yeah we'll talk about it when I get back the very same day you are laying them off and slipping out the back door with your tail between your legs is cowardly. Yea....sure you don't play politics. Cough cough
