    Have a lot of work ahead of them

    Analyst (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsTheir pay is great, nice offices, vision for the future of the company is promising. Benefits are also really good.

    ConsPoor management, office atmosphere is stifling, management has clear favorites that they single out regularly and the rest are practically ignored. Those individuals new to management have no idea what they are doing, how to lead and also can be seen simply relying on their favorites to carry the workload and then use the favorite to delegate work to others, even though that favorite should not be doing so.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter train your management in the Houston office. Work on your office culture in the Houston office. Encourage the management in the Houston office to stop the high turnover of the contractors. Just when a contractor is trained, they either leave or are let go. That is not productive and creates resentment in the office.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Transcanada only thinks about the money and not the potential threat to the environment. Greedy

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Kansas City, MO

    ProsWorked 6 days a week for 14 hours per day. Lots of money made in 3 months working on pipeline.

    ConsSafety issues were supposed to be important but when it came to the almighty dollar and finishing up in time - people took risks.

    An uncaring company of all the boots on the ground workforce causes rapid burnout.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsPay & benefits, Pay & benefits, Pay & benefits, Pay & benefits, Pay & benefits, Pay & benefits, Pay & benefits.

    ConsConstant confusion about work requirements. Not enough people on the ground to operate the plants safely. Poor training practices if any training is given. Due to lack of people, placing in positions that they are not trained or skilled to perform. A total lack of respect of the general employee.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more field employees. Put people in there expertise.

    Archaeic management style, Poor employee morale, Lack of integrity

    Business Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsMoney is good. Benefits are great. Job safety is strong. The location is central. Building is nice. The executive team is fantastic. The new CEO is grounded, intelligent and extremely well suited to lead TC for the next few years. Problem is in the middle management.

    ConsThis is a very top-down culture. For the ones in middle management - they somehow believe they know best and expect others to follow. That is okay as long as the ones in middle management are competent. The problem is that there are only a handful of those in here. The result is poor morale and culture - the worst is that stellar performers can burn out here fast.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTransCanada can be a great company to work in if and only if the leadership at the middle management level is significantly improved.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
