My experieince at TransCanada is good

Senior IS Integration & Control Specialist (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at TransCanada full-time for more than 5 years

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

ConsPromotion 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 Senior ManagementEliminate 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
