Good and fair employer, but not a stand-out company

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Calgary, AB (Canada)

ProsATCO is a large company that appears to present many opportunities for its employees through all the sister companies, stable in terms of job security and not necessarily subject to (or impacted by) market trends and oil patch instability like many other employers in Calgary, employees all seem to be treated equally, and the company is very consistent in recognition and expectations for individuals.

ConsStand-out performers are not easily recognized or compensated as the same benefits (i.e. vacation) and salary brackets are applied to all employees regardless of effort level. There does appear to be small opportunities for recognition applied, but these are typically few and far between. Overall the company has a too middle-of-the-road mindset in terms of targetting salary and compensation, with the opporutinity for growth in either area limited solely based on years of service.

Advice to Senior ManagementLook to your peers in the industry in terms of more creative options in terms of work-life balance, such as tele-commuting.

Review the overall mindset of fairness to identify better ways of rewarding performers, besides more work.

Years of service is not the correct benchmark for assessing someone's worth.

    Pros: Opportunity to learn new things. Cons: The management and reporting structures don't make any sense. Advice to Senior Management: Take into account the amount and quality of work that is done by someone instead of how long the person has… More
