    Pros

    Good pay great for some Good benefits including Health & Vacation. Area I work at people are very nice and friendly

    Cons

    Read all the other posts, I was amazed how true they are across entire company. In the field there is no work life balance at all.

    I have been working at Spectra Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Focus on building leadership skills. Very stable. Upper management cares about employees. You will not feel you are just a number. Your voice will be heard.

    Cons

    Technical training is limited. Less career advancement. Job rotation only occurs on the top (e.g., Director or VP above), not to the low or middle level.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more money on the technical training for the employees who want to improve or expand their career. Create more job rotation (for low or middle level employees) to broad the employees' skills set if you cannot promote the employee; this is the least the company can or should do.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Spectra Energy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance - 9/80, teleworking and part-time work. Health - there is a Nurse Practitioner on site and a clinic with two beds and nursing rooms. There is also a gym on sit Leaders - trustworthy and highly competent. Mid to Upper-level Management - usually leaves little to be desired. Great benefits - three weeks vacation immediately; 401(k) matching, pension and bonus. The company is always seeking to improve and always puts their employees first.

    Cons

    Salary is okay. Little room for growth.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Vision-driven company that actually believes in a balance between work and personal life balance. Smart executive management that is consistently executing a successful growth company. Solid benefits and vacation package.

    Cons

    Many within the company are unwilling to change old ways to embrace a new company environment. Pay may not be good enough to keep the best performers. Engineering bias makes other disciplines feel like secondary employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all professional disciplines equally. A engineer fresh out of college gets a better office than a well-experienced and educated professional. Otherwise, keep up the great work!

    Pros

    Spectra Energy provides a great work/life balance and supports its employees health and families. There is a lot of flexibility to move between groups/departments and learn new roles and grow your experience.

    Cons

    Timing is important when it comes to moving between groups and departments. Also, career progression can be difficult. Many folks leave the company looking for faster advancement or higher salaries. The company tends to lacks in that sense.

    Advice to Management

    Take pride in your employees and help them grow. There seems to be this consistent glass ceiling between employees, middle managers and upper management. Fear that if your employees start to know more than you, you will be replaced and thus, the management keeps their employees in check. That is when the rising employees begin to leave the company to search for more challenging and higher compensated positions.

    Pros

    The people are extremely nice--respectful and professional. The company respects each employee's time and life outside the office. Perks include annual bonus (based on company performance), cafeteria, and gym in building.

    Cons

    The team on which I work is not extremely well-organized (but is getting better); consequently decisions are often made by individuals without regard for the impacts to others. From what I understand, other teams are more structured.

    Pros

    Spectra Energy has a great working environment and everybody is very friendly.I very much enjoy working there. It's the best time to be in this industry and Spectra Energy is very competitive.

    Cons

    Things sometimes can go a little slow in terms of change but the corporation is currently working on that. Compensation may be a little less than competition.

    Pros

    Great environment, given your own cubicle and laptop, work with other interns in a very similar position as yourself. Get to work on multiple projects and at the end you present it to the top management and VP of Supply Chain

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be slow, not always a lot to do, it was their first time doing an internship with Supply Chain majors so you have to bare with them for they are learning at the same time as you.
