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

    Pros

    Great work environment, excellent work and life balance. People are very friendly here and it runs like a family. Management cares what you say and it has open door policy. HR is trustworthy and it rarely can be seen in other company. 9/80 schedule is wonderful aspect to have to not only give employees and family flexibility but also save the commute and gas from environmental prospective. Employee loyalty and moral is high under current Spectra culture.wonderful aspect to have to not only give employees and family flexbility but

    Cons

    Not too much cons under current Spectra environment and culture. Have huge concerns about Enbridge US, especially saw reviews written by Enbridge employees and hearings about Enbridge culture. Non-existing 9/80 schedule at Enbridge is very big disappointment, hope Enbridge management could consider and respect the current Spectra culture and 9/80 schedule

    Advice to Management

    Wish good Spectra culture can be adopted by the Enbridge management. In the end, people shall the key to the company’s future. Employees’ loyalty and trust are essential and that shall never be overlooked by the new management.
