Pros

Benefits are much better than most places, the more progressive Canadian policies are definitely in evidence.

Cons

Energy is in general is a male dominated industry. This was particularly true in the Portland office of TransCanada. Golfing was a favorite activity and women were rarely asked to participate in the golfing field trips that managers went on with their favorite staff.

Advice to Management

Address equality and sensitivity issues more seriously

  1. Transcanada only thinks about the money and not the potential threat to the environment. Greedy

    Pros

    Worked 6 days a week for 14 hours per day. Lots of money made in 3 months working on pipeline.

    Cons

    Safety issues were supposed to be important but when it came to the almighty dollar and finishing up in time - people took risks.

    Pros

    Company with good benefits and compensation, generally good work environment, and healthy work/life balance.

    Cons

    As restructuring began, environment was less than nice. Took over a perfectally run subsidiary company and pretty much dissolved it and divested of the employees - many 35-40 years.

    Advice to Management

    Worry less about location and more about performance of employees.
