I worked at Spectra Energy full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Spectra is an established big company with big company benefits. A leader in natural gas storage and a major player in natural gas transportation.

Cons

Spectra is a big company. Some of the internal groups tend to try to act like a small company when in fact the big company layers of bureaucracy and politics exist and are in full effect.

    Pros

    Advice to Management

    So much of what your perception of Spectra Energy will be - will depend on your Job function and what you are looking for in your career overall. If you want safe, stable and stress free - this is your place. If you are looking for big money and gaining skills that the market will highly value - look elsewhere.

    Spectra Energy is a company that is way too overstaffed, has below industry average pay and fairly dead end as far as skills you would gain that would be transferable even to other oil and gas operating companies. It offers a sheltered, safe and stable work environment that would appeal to women and older workers but probably not to those looking for the oil and gas payoff you would find in other companies in terms of skills, experience or money in the industry.

    If you are serious about a career in the oil and gas industry, Spectra will get in you the door. But it will also waste your time if you allow it.
