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

    Pros

    Transcanada has a good platform to be a good company. Dental coverage, vacation time and personal time was good. They do offer tuition reimbursement.

    Cons

    Management issues plague the company. Management positions are often held by friends and relatives of the upper management team. The company does not care about life work balance. The US power portion of the company did some real damage to morale within the last few years. Most of the employees welcome for sale

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to restructure your management team and look at who your employees really are. Most I have your management is incompetent an uneducated.

    I have been working at TransCanada (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, the best teammates/co-workers.

    Cons

    US based employees are barely/never considered for promotion into team, department, business units, and organizational leadership. Indirectly being shown day in and day out that this is a Canadian company and will remain so; therefore, not matter how much you do - your Canadian counterparts are and will be priority/superior. In other words, US based employees are not being shown what’s in it for them – so why again will you carry the cross for… If you are a top talent or considered an elite in your profession and you want a company that will take you and your contributions serious and show their appreciation of that - this is not the company for you.

    Advice to Management

    Engage and use top/elite talents universally - no matter what country and location and you will see greater results.

    I have been working at TransCanada full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The checks are still cashing.

    Cons

    Company continues to purchase new assets and provide senior management with large bonuses but can't afford to give lower level employees raises. Management is very hard to work with and convince there could be better ways of practicing business.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes before you start loosing all of your employees.
