Pros

Great benefits, great work & life balance, and good people to work with

Cons

Promotion is not based on performance, rather seniority. Pay is not tied to performance. Unnecessary need to use team leads that adds another layer to business processes. No minority member of the executive leadership team, not even in the Director position, VP, Senior VPs, or Executive Leadership Team (it's still a white man's world at TransCanada).

Advice to Management

Eliminate team leads, we're are all professionals and not high school student at a grocery store that needs someone to push us around and monitor our actions. Delegate and people will more than deliver. Hire or promote a minority member to the executive leadership team. Tie pay and promotion to performance not Seniority.

    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 Management

    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 Management

    Address equality and sensitivity issues more seriously
