Great place to start, lots of opportunities to grow in pipelines

Developer (Former Employee) Calgary, AB (Canada)

ProsFriendly co-workers and management. Many resources to learn from.

ConsPigeon-holed into one job description. Hard to get out without certain certifications.

Advice to Senior ManagementWhile certifications weed out employees that are not qualified for the tasks, being too specific can weed out employees that are. For example, a computer science graduate is just as qualified as a software engineer in programming and development, but because they don't have the "engineering" title, they won't be considered by TransCanada for a developer position. It's a shame because TransCanada loses good temporary or contract employees that have been trained in TransCanada's procedures to new hires that have to be trained, but have the specific certification. Would save TransCanada a lot more time and money if they eased up on their certification process.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
