    I have been working at Spectra Energy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Spectra Energy has a good corporate culture. It invests in its employees, and has a relaxed work environment. The work life balance is good with the flex hours program where you can get every other Friday off.

    Cons

    The career progression can be slow. Management wants to be 110% sure that someone will excel in the role before they make the move. It can be frustrating waiting for the next promotion.

    I have been working at Spectra Energy full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and laid back work atmosphere.
    Mentorship program in place.
    Industry with lots of potential when gas prices pick up.

    Cons

    Opportunities to move up, let alone sideways, are few and far between.
    Management needs to encourage employee development & communicate with employees better, the only manager that I know did that left.
    I find it interesting that SET West has not been officially named "The employer of choice" in the media like Union Gas and the Houston office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue pushing the mentorship program
    Provide training for management so they can become effective leaders for employees.
