    Pros

    Benefits are good. Vacation is very liberal. If you can prove 10 years of relevant experience, they automatically give you 4 weeks plus everyone gets 40 hrs personal time in addition.
    In the past pay was competitive, but has fallen off over the last few years.

    Cons

    HUGE divide at the US/Canadian border. Canada get more $, more personal time, more holidays, and all of the upper management positions. It's two different companies, just depends on which side of the border you live.
    Procedure driven........check your brain at the door.
    Bonuses are shrinking. No raises in 2016.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people doing the work. Their actions make the company money, not someone sitting in the office. Work life balance should be always, not just when slow or convenient to management.

    I worked at TransCanada full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, very family orientatied and big emphasis on safety. Unlimited sick days is a definite plus. Benefits start immedialty.

    Cons

    Not as competitive pay wise and they import many managers/directors from Canada instead of hiring or promoting US. Does not pay for bus or parking.

    Advice to Management

    Make the pay competitive in the Houston market. Hire and promote more US instead of bringing in employees from the Canada offices.
