Worked on Business and Project side (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB22 December 2016
Although there is no loyalty from TC to its staff, they tend to make up for it a bit in their work life balance and when the industry is hot, they pay well and have fair benefits, when it is not, they feel no loyalty to their staff.
Pros
Work life Balance
Cons
lacking in stability

Project Manager (Contract) (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB29 November 2016
No long term growth in the Oil side of the business. Great for Co-op students or young engineers looking to learn about the pipeline business. Typical owner companies do no Engineering so if you are expecting to design something and stamp it go work for an EPC.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Disengaged managers that seems to be only concerned with CYA

Project Manager for Testing and Project Controller (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB24 June 2016
At the time of writing TransCanada is going through a period of internal review and rebalance. This has lead to some unexpected decision regarding personnel retention, organisation and placement.

Before the upheaval started TransCanada was a very good place to be a contractor. Lots of great roles, supported by TransCanada colleagues.

At the moment there is a freeze on personnel which has lead to overworking and reductions of rates paid. Once the upheaval has settled down, more is known about the direction of the company internally and the hiring freeze is eased I am sure that this will be a great place to be again.
Pros
Good location, and very interesting work.
Cons
Company in internal upheaval
