I worked at TransCanada

Pros

Interesting and challnging work.
Very professional people work there who are committed to doing a good job.
Good compensation practices and excellent benefits.
There is a general understanding at the corporate level about the importance of investing in people.

Cons

It is a very structured work environment where there seems to be a policy, procedure or process for everything and anything. If you are a creative, self starting individual, this is not the place for you. If you like structure, clear objectives and favor management over leadership - this may be a good place for you to work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Not all of the intellectual capital in the organization is held at the VP level and above. Actually inspiring people to take the initiative and do work to the best of their ability will likely pay some real dividends.

    I have been working at TransCanada

    Pros

    Fairly good compensation package with flexibility of purchasing more vacations.

    Cons

    Too much office politics between departments. Lack of clear directions from senior managements. Opportunities for promotion or internal transfer are minimal unless you worked for the company for a long time. The demographic of company is mostly made up by baby boomers. Middle management lacks leadership and initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should promote more training or continue education for people in the mid-thirties to prepare for the baby boomers' retirements. Best to have a re-organization of the middle management level.

    I have been working at TransCanada

    Pros

    As a whole, it is a safe organization. Essentially a low-risk player in the energy industry and that means more security.

    Cons

    While senior management (c-level) are forward thinking, middle management can tend to be archaec in their attitudes and approaches to management. TC has grown significantly in the last few years, and the internal divide is apparent. This translates to heightened frustration and job dissatisfaction at the employee level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some serious house keeping is in order at the middle management level. The cracks in corporate culture may be hard to see, but could result in serious performance shortcomings down the road.
