    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.

    Pros

    The checks are still cashing.
