I worked at TransCanada full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Their pay is great, nice offices, vision for the future of the company is promising. Benefits are also really good.

Cons

Poor management, office atmosphere is stifling, management has clear favorites that they single out regularly and the rest are practically ignored. Those individuals new to management have no idea what they are doing, how to lead and also can be seen simply relying on their favorites to carry the workload and then use the favorite to delegate work to others, even though that favorite should not be doing so.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Better train your management in the Houston office. Work on your office culture in the Houston office. Encourage the management in the Houston office to stop the high turnover of the contractors. Just when a contractor is trained, they either leave or are let go. That is not productive and creates resentment in the office.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Address equality and sensitivity issues more seriously

    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.
