    Pros

    Lots of meaningful work...no shortage of work

    Cons

    data systems are going through a change and creating confusion and back log. Hiring many ppl who dont know pipe and so have to deal with differeing backgrounds and differering cultures and sometimes...incompetence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is old school, rwetire already and bring younger ppl to be part of the 'Leadership Team'

    I worked at TransCanada as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While 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.
