    I have been working at ATCO full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good Money, great benifits. Most people are very good to work with.
    Our holidays are excellent and it's a great work environment.

    Cons

    Not much to say for cons. Need more experienced workers with all the retirements happening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I personally love the new companies ATCO is getting into. Nancy Southern is a very smart lady. I feel some managers need to become more organized though.

    I have been working at ATCO

    Pros

    The employees have a great attitude and respect to one another. This goes between engineers, accountants, field staff and executive. Compensation is fair and job security in the utility companies is second to none. Work life balance is generally good but may be eroding.

    Cons

    The company can be somewhat rigid and old fashioned. Flexible work hours are not an option. Dress code is strict and stodgy. The company can be slow and unresponsive at times. Often many approvals are required for anything to happen, resulting in delays that paralyze the company. The greatest example of this of late has been replacement of vacancies. The company is very slow to fill them and the existing staff bears the weight of the extra work. The company went lean in the last few years and appears unwilling or unable to staff up. People are burning out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fill the vacancies you have. Staff up and reduce the workload on those still here. Burnout as a result of the added work is making the company lose good people. I promise this is costing us more money than if we had a few more people and higher retention rates.
