TransCanada is a good place to work seemingly unaffected by current financial crisis.

I have been working at TransCanada

Pros

Pay, bonus, stock performance share units and days off are all at par or above those offered throughout the energy industry. Flex time allowing variable start and end of workday is a benefit. Tools provided in support of the job function are good.

Cons

Difficult to understand at times the desires of management and the measures they will use to evaluate performance. Personnel cutbacks have resulted in higher workload than normal and "burnout" is a possibility. Standards between Canadian and US based employees are not the same i.e. employees in Canada receive 7 more days off that in the US for identical service.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Improve communication. Work on standardizing work environment between all employees at all locations.

    I worked at TransCanada as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good vacation and good benefits

    Cons

    Incompetent people are promoted to management by the incompetent manager. There are some incompetent managers in IS and they are close together. I don't understand why they get to fire other people. Some people didn't work much at all because of their close relationship to the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort out incompetent managers in IS and let people who know what they are doing do the work.
