I found Spectra Energy people the best group I have ever work with. They go out of their way to assist one with an problem. Very one was pleasant and happy to be working at Spectra. From the Director down, all were very helpful and fun to work with.
Good work environment and pleasant people
Management should devote more into developing equipment data base
Good company, unlucky if you get stuck with bad managers
Engineer (Current Employee) – Fort St. John, BC – 28 February 2017
The company as a whole is very good. Good work culture, good practices, challenging work. Company has a bad habit of hiring very weak and poor managers who end up driving out good employees. HR is useless for support and do not look out for best interest of employees. At least employees are compensated well.
A good place to work with lots of resources, opportunities and support.
Contractor Management Program Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 5 October 2016
Spectra Energy is a good place to work. In the 11 years I worked for the company I gained a lot of experience in the gas transmission industry. I was able to work at every one of their main gas plants as well as most of the smaller facilities and transmission stations. They encouraged and paid for education to improve my knowledge base in the field of health and safety management
Senior Financial Analyst, Strategic Development (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 November 2015
I started in the project construction department as project financial analyst. Here I worked with several project managers refining the monthly actual, forecasting and final project costing model.
Working with the teams was a fantastic experience and learning tool on how pipelines, compression stations, metering stations and processing plants are built and operated.
As my duties expanded to working with Business Development I was rewarded by joining the department. This was the greatest opportunity for my career. I learned about economic modelling, worked with every department in supporting project development to implementation, Monte Carlo risk modelling and assessments and worked with some of the brightest minds in the business.
Supporting the team that set up the Project Management Office, then guiding teams through the process was a fantastic experience.
I was afforded the opportunity to work with senior management up to and including the CEO and her management team, which started to develop my communication skills from the layman to top management.
The hardest part of the job was ensuring I had the time management skills to address the many duties I was awarded.
Of course the most enjoyable part of the role was the many great people I worked with, the new skills I was offered, and the endless support and opportunities for career advancement.
Project Execution Field Health & Safety Specialist (Former Employee) – BC – 12 February 2015
A typical day:
Assuring the owner that various Prime Contractors were admirably following their HSE Program while protecting several multi million dollar investments in facility and pipeline projects including: the Aiken Creek revitalization; the Highway Plant expansion and subsequent Flowsplitter and NPS-12 Pipeline projects; two shut down activities for the Jedney Plant facility as well as the 30" Mainline Class upgrade through the Rocky Mountains.
Long hours allowing for freedom to do what needs to be done
Fun place to work. Everyone had each other back, regarding the community events and departments work load. Out side of work we continue getting together for various events. Team work, and team players and support, was very important to us.
