Incompetent middle managment. Unclear directions. Very low oppourtunity for advancement. Too much politics. Too much process red tape. Huge disconnects between various departments

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Too many management layers. Need to focus on getting the job done rather than sharpening their political skills.

    Pros

    Money is good. Benefits are great. Job safety is strong. The location is central. Building is nice. The executive team is fantastic. The new CEO is grounded, intelligent and extremely well suited to lead TC for the next few years. Problem is in the middle management.

    Cons

    This is a very top-down culture. For the ones in middle management - they somehow believe they know best and expect others to follow. That is okay as long as the ones in middle management are competent. The problem is that there are only a handful of those in here. The result is poor morale and culture - the worst is that stellar performers can burn out here fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TransCanada can be a great company to work in if and only if the leadership at the middle management level is significantly improved.

    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.
