    I have been working at Spectra Energy full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great stable company who cares about its people, are considerate of work life balance, great people to work with, great benefits, lots of growth both for the people and the business

    Cons

    Because its so great the people never leave making it difficult to move up in the organization. The company is currently going through a transition so there is a lot of uncertainty at the moment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop and challenge the younger employee base and look for opportunities to incentivize in pay because currently there is no meritocracy and people find that very frustrating.

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

    Pros

    Pay is better than most companies

    Cons

    Too many directors trying to change the company into BP, too many politics, and too many inconsistencies.

    Advice to Management

    Work on one issue, fix it, then move on to the next. Get to know your contractors as they are 60% of the company's staff. Train, train, train. The is not a competition to see who can swim the farthest without a life jacket.
