    I have been working at Enbridge full-time

    Pros

    Enbridge does a great job of recruiting good talent, providing quality training, but not allowing you to become complacent. Fast paced company that values integrity and hard work. While the company seems to have contracted and grown over the years, they seem to find a place for quality employees through times of change.

    Cons

    The company requires you to travel for the job at about 25% of the time. The job can be stressful as it requires immediate action and decision making.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do good.

    I worked at Enbridge as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    good office environment, good work life balance, not lot of overtime work. Traditional type of company culture that rarely laid off employees.

    Cons

    It is a engineering company not a IT company, not so good to develop IT skills. Not much change, and not much excitement while working there. slow pace.

    I worked at Enbridge as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent salary, benefits, corporate responsibility, growth opportunities
    There is excellent potential for growth with Enbridge whether in technology, operations or administration. The demands of a changing world push the company to innovate, there are many areas to work that are on the cutting edge.

    Cons

    Bargaining units coupled with old school corporate politics prevent most great talent from staying while encouraging the mediocre to linger for a lifetime.
    Innovation ends up hidden or muddled in bureaucracy, and value statements such as "Do it right the first time" seem to be lip service only.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a creative solution to merge the company's vision/values with operational reality. In particular recruiting practices Do Not match the company's Vision!

    I have been working at Enbridge full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice reception area
    My computer is nice
    My friends are jealous

    Cons

    The company grew too fast so now there is a lot of scrambling and disorganization. Lack of checks and balances on the business development department. Work here if you are okay with your work being tampered with. I felt several times like my ethics has felt compromised because I care about the shareholders. Culture is about face time and not questioning decisions. No appreciation, long hours, no role models, and I feel underpaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put a leash on business development and stop glorifying them. How are other departments supposed to stand up to them if they have all these fancy titles and all the influence? Get some ballsy directors in other groups. Appreciate your people. I'm not a machine. I used to love working here but now I feel undervalued and treated like a robot with no feelings.

    I have been working at Enbridge as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Overall the company is stable and does offer some educational opportunities to staff. Interesting work and met some wonderful people.

    Cons

    Very rigid old-world structure. Does not value employees highly and needs to work on staff morale as management manages upward. Lots of work so if work/life balance is important this may be an issue. Vague policies and procedures for staff which need to be in writing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to increase morale and select management for that in order to make the company more progressive. Need human resources manual that is complete.
