I have been working at ATCO

Pros

Hard-working people. Good pay and benefits. Systems are improving and the new owners are investing in the company, which should see it turn around in a few years time.

Cons

Frustrating trying to get runs on the board - many underlying processes are broken. Absence of team building, lack of team spirit.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in some administrative staff and buy your staff a beer once in a while.

    Former Employee - Internal IT Manager to Client Companies

    I worked at ATCO full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Stable, good benefits, good office locations

    Cons

    Command & Control mentality from management, micro-managers, to many lifers with 25x1 years experiejnce, limted opportunities for progression, very old school mentality, no idea what 'cost competitive' means - similar to most large utilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on hiring from external companies, and not other utilities. Foster change - not just doing the same and following the dinosaurs.

    I have been working at ATCO full-time (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.
