Pros

Spectra Energy provides a great work/life balance and supports its employees health and families. There is a lot of flexibility to move between groups/departments and learn new roles and grow your experience.

Cons

Timing is important when it comes to moving between groups and departments. Also, career progression can be difficult. Many folks leave the company looking for faster advancement or higher salaries. The company tends to lacks in that sense.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take pride in your employees and help them grow. There seems to be this consistent glass ceiling between employees, middle managers and upper management. Fear that if your employees start to know more than you, you will be replaced and thus, the management keeps their employees in check. That is when the rising employees begin to leave the company to search for more challenging and higher compensated positions.

    I worked at Spectra Energy as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    None... Well they are close to a bar... For you to drink your sorrows away after your day at work.

    Cons

    People spend more time finding reasons and excuses to not work than actually working, especially in Services Supply Chain. The Manager only worried about taking other people down than doing her job. Nothing ever gets done especially in meeting and employees just pass all the work onto contract workers to do. Worst place to work if you have any type of motivation, it will only slowly suck your life out of you. And if you are anything other than white you are doomed and will be stick doing the grunt work without any advancement while you see others doing nothing and complaining about their work load.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is nothing here I can say that they don't already know.
