    I have been working at Spectra Energy as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Like everyone else said.. Work life balance. I"m a contractor and they go way out of their way to not treat me like one. I like the group I'm in, I have an excellent manager.

    Cons

    I haven't really found the dark side yet. There seems to be a lot of silo-ing going on, with one piece of the business not knowing what the others are doing, but you find that everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your lower level management to do their job. They're smart people.

    Pros

    Very people friendly, collaborative people - great benefits and competitive pay - on site gym - an aging workforce with 25% of the people currently retirement eligible so that equates into great career opportunities over the next few years. Very ethical company which supports community service.

    Cons

    Although things have improved, management is reluctant to add more staff so workloads can be heavy at times.

    Advice to Management

    Add some more people !
