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

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!

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule and alternative work week

    Cons

    Hyper political to the point that middle managers (director) sabotage each other.

    Promotion opportunities are nonexistent

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the directors you have, especially in IT. Get rid of poor performers and stop putting contractors in key roles and keep wondering why there is no growth in leadership. Contractors are only interested in job security. So you pay some contractors high rates, they build little kingdoms unto themselves and you wonder why there is so much disfunction. Wake up!
