    Pros

    Good amount of time off, decent pay.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs, not enough indians. They preach constantly about integrity and respect, but yet management refuses to acknowledge or do anything about extramarital relationships ---VPs and managers, VPs and employees. Managers belittle you to the point of bullying. Don't waste your time applying to work here.

    Advice to Management

    None because they won't do anything anyway.

    Pros

    Good employee benefits.
    1 paid day/ month off
    Good medical/vision/dental
    Tuition reimbursement

    Cons

    The message communciated by the most senior levels of management is that we need to be the industry leader in all aspects of the business (Safety, Customer Satisfaction, Shareholder delivery, Engineering, Reliability). This often leads to a mixed message of priorities. Everything, and I do mean EVERYTHING, is convoluted and complicated and overthought. Some of the most simple decisions or tasks at Enbridge can get mired in multiple layers of bureaucracy. Very little room to operate autonomously. This creates tremendous obstacles and difficulties for front line staff who are responsible for making work happen. The culture in the area where I work is very pessimistic and negative. This may not be the case across the rest of the company.

    Constant organizational change.

    5 yrs and I have yet to report to a manager that makes it a priority to train thier people properly and build a strong team.

    Very hard to find a work/life balance. The company promots a healthy work/life balance but stacks so much work on you that the former will win out.
