    Pros

    Great company, lots of room to move around. Benefits and pay are good, people generally easy to get along with.

    Cons

    Parts of the company can be fairly disorganized depending on the area. Due to line of work, sometimes unfavorable working hours.

    Advice to Management

    I can only speak for my experience, but more feedback on employee performance. Other than that management is great.

    Pros

    Great office location, semi-flexible hours, professional, many people are hard working and really know their jobs well!

    Cons

    Management has their favorites and promote them faster than believable, HR must not be watching. The old Transco people that still work at the company barely work at all, mostly play games, go to lunch and take off on Fridays!

    Advice to Management

    Clean House!

    Pros

    Decent pay, great benefits, some good perks. Tuition reimbursement. Job security is good even for the energy sector. Transfer opportunity.

    Cons

    Safety is only when it's convenient. If corporate is around you have to toe the line. If they arent, we'll management could care less if you got hurt as long as it was your fault and not theirs. Finger pointing and assigning blame should be the motto. Safety on the surface. Cannot advance unless you know someone.

    Advice to Management

    Clean it up or you will see accidents rise. Get a hold of your field office management. Time for shaking things up. Transparency throughout all levels will make for a more positive workplace.

    Pros

    Depending on the team you work in, there truly is a community/family feeling among co-workers. It is an engaging place to work.

    Cons

    The long term benefits are extremely slanted towards the older generation. There are not many incentives for younger employees to come work here.

    Advice to Management

    When asking your employees to back fill positions in cost cutting efforts, you should still compensate them in some way. You can't expect them to give double the work on the same salary long-term.
