    Take more value in the development and success of your direct reports. Give them a chance to grow instead of demand perfection. Give new employees no matter the onboarding type a detailed orientation to the company, position, team, and expectations.

    I worked at Spectra Energy (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay and great employees. Many resources and great IT department. Excellent opportunity to travel. Company vehicle and opportunities for training when needed.

    Cons

    Lack of knowledge by direct supervisor. I along with other with the same manager found that he or she did not have the field knowledge required to understand what his employees did on a day-day basis. Manager was aware of what was going on and relied on everyone else to provide information as opposed to taking the time to do the work. As a supervisor your employees made more money through overtime than their direct supervisor. Expected to work extremely long hours. No life/work balance.

    Advice to Management

    Start the hiring process before employees leaves as opposed to bringing in someone new and having no idea what your role is within the company. At the beginning of the job I had to learn the job on my own or rely on other employees that were willing to help, but had their own job to do so time was limited.
