Pros

Senior management has conservative business approach regarding capital decisions, but has a forward looking decision making style (investing in renewable energy projects). This combination has provided for a healthy cash flow statement, while establishing a base for the future.

Cons

A corporate culture of no lay offs means all areas are a little (and during good times a lot) understaffed. Absorbing new acquisitions has made it difficult for some staff to maintain a work life balance.

Advice to Management

Examine (and put in place) a way(s) to grow the company while maintaining adequate staffing levels (to prevent burn out).

    I worked at AltaGas full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great people at the line and managerial level. Good projects and BD makes for lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    When former CEO (Cornhill) stepped back the company lost focus on its core values. Lip service is paid to anything beyond the "deck-plate". Cornhill had a vision and created a great company. Look at the stock price since the leadership changes so see how much has been lost.
