    I have been working at Spectra Energy full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    We work here to live and the company supports that concept
    Great place to get experience

    Cons

    Eval processis "rigged". Meaning the 1 to 5 scale is really a 1 to 4. So basically here at Spectra you will always be an average employee.
    Office politics - really bad here.
    Salary is on the low side

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Evaluations shuld be honest.
    Senior Management seems to know where they are taking the company
    Unable to advance - my fear is that I will me stuck in this postion until I get a better offer

    I have been working at Spectra Energy as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Like everyone else said.. Work life balance. I"m a contractor and they go way out of their way to not treat me like one. I like the group I'm in, I have an excellent manager.

    Cons

    I haven't really found the dark side yet. There seems to be a lot of silo-ing going on, with one piece of the business not knowing what the others are doing, but you find that everywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your lower level management to do their job. They're smart people.
