Excellent and comfortable environment, well suited for folks that value job security over carrier growth.

I have been working at Spectra Energy as a contractor

Pros

Very nice people, excellent working conditions, great flexibility, job security, true to the "employer of choice" values.

Cons

Extremely controlled communication environment which stifle creativity. Very narrow job assignments that do not allow for growth. Reaching outside the job scope is more or less "punished" instead of discussed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There's a great book called "leadership and self deception". Most of the folks are "in the box" and need coaching/help.

    I have been working at Spectra Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Vision-driven company that actually believes in a balance between work and personal life balance. Smart executive management that is consistently executing a successful growth company. Solid benefits and vacation package.

    Cons

    Many within the company are unwilling to change old ways to embrace a new company environment. Pay may not be good enough to keep the best performers. Engineering bias makes other disciplines feel like secondary employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat all professional disciplines equally. A engineer fresh out of college gets a better office than a well-experienced and educated professional. Otherwise, keep up the great work!
