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

    Pros

    Used to be a great company, could be again if CEO were fired.

    Cons

    Raises, cost of living increases, and bonuses have been non-existent for several years, unless you are an executive (especially the CEO whose pay and benefits increase exponentially).

    Basically, relative to the cost of living, my income is less now than when I started 6 years ago. It is disgusting to see upper management rolling in benefits while they strip everything from the people who actually benefit the company... the CEO has done nothing but mismanage the company (creating a bloated and confusing heirarchy of chiefs, resulting in massive layoffs to partially correct the problem and a floundering stock price) yet he is one of the only people in the company who has seen any increase in benefits, ever the last several years.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about employees again. Consider (and fix) the reasons why so many people are voluntarilly leaving the company now compared to the prior history where most people remained with the company for life. Quit encouraging bad management practices with increased benefits.

    I have been working at Enbridge full-time

    Pros

    - 401k matching at 6%.
    - 9/80 work schedule.
    - Okay benefits, 15 days vacation time to start, bumps to 20 days after 5 years, and capped at 25 days at 10 years.

    Cons

    Buckle up, this is going to be long. Most of what I am writing here, you can see for yourself on the SEC 10K filing for Spectra Energy.

    1. Executives will cut bonuses for employees by 25% and increase their own to 199%. Their reasons for this bonus "Hard work". Essentially, cutting bonuses from their employees to increase their own payouts.
    2.Yearly raises will not match inflation. Again, this is done so that the executives can increase their year end bonus payout.
    3. Complete lack of transparency. If you call the accounting department asking for clarification as to how bonuses are calculated, and why there was a reduction in pay when the company valuation went up, accounting refuses to answer.
    4. Not only was the executive branch absurdly over paid this past year, they are also releasing a large amount of salaried employees. Again, executives collecting bonuses that could have been used to keep loyal employees employed.
    5. Lack of loyalty as is clearly evident above.

    For the not so serious stuff:
    1. Departments do not work together, instead they work against each other, withholding information, and refusing to work together.
    2. Bureaucracy runs rampant, the ethics line is said to be "anonymous" and it is not at all. In-fact, shedding light on misdoings will only make your life worse.
    3. Routinely, people who have family members in upper management will receive pay raises and promotions that they have no place getting. The amount of unqualified people in positions of power are shocking. I am hoping that Enbridge sees this and cleans house.

    Advice to Management

    This is advice to future prospective employees, run and hide. If you work here, find another place to work. Unless Enbridge cleans house, there is no helping this company.

    No matter how good a team is, if that team has a terrible leader, they will falter. See 2016 Texans.

    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.

    Lack of 9/80 work schedule in Houston, decision making is slow but may get better with new organizational structure (soon to be announced).

    More standardization throughout enterprise.

    Pros

    Enbridge is very good company and overall a great place to work. They are very flexible with the work/life balance and their compensation is very competitive. I would recommend them to anyone interested.

    Cons

    Each floor can feel a bit isolated from one another.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing
