    I worked at Spectra Energy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, Pay, Flexible Work Schedule

    Cons

    5 years ago it was a good place to work, in Supply Chain. In 2012 it turned into a wild political game with lost focus on day to day business and more about departmental agendas. It's sad really.

    Advice to Management

    Don't scratch your head wondering where all your talent went. If you don't allow organic growth, you will lose people. Funny how everyone pushed for the leadership development network, yet the company always looked to the outside to fill positions.

    I worked at Spectra Energy as a contractor (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits if you are an employee. You really don't have to know anything if you are an employee since they have way more contractors to do the work than actual employees.

    Cons

    Could be a good company to work for if you can get hired on directly. If your a contractor you get no benefits, no paid time off and Spectra does not want to pay for any of these services they expect you to work everyday with no time off.

    Advice to Management

    Start testing your actual employees and make sure that they know how to do the job before you offer them the positions. And not just hire based on looks since half the men in power just want to look at women that are skinny and where six-inch heels and short dresses to work.
