Pros

- stability, financial strength, etc.
- very interesting business
- lots of opportunities (although it's up to you to find and create them)
- good work life balance (depending on your manager -- see comment below)

Cons

- sometimes slow moving
- not going to get rich off the stock (but it will retain it's value and grow over time)
- your experience depends greatly on your manager (if you've got a good manager its fantastic, but a bad manager could be a horrible experience)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- keep it up
- continue to focus more on the "people" aspects of running the organization (great strides in the last couple years, but still a long way to go)

    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.

    Archaeic management style, Poor employee morale, Lack of integrity

    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.
