A Good Company to work for
Project Manager for Testing and Project Controller (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABJune 24, 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

Good compensation and opportunities to move inside the company. A bit outdated in terms of business management. Poor resource planning, therefore a lot of layoffs during recession.

Treatment of Contractors is Horrible!!
Supply Chain Major Projects (Former Employee) –  Calgary , ABJune 5, 2015
New Supply Chain Management does not have a clue about business needs or roles within their BU. Although they talk the team approach to work, they foster a culture of pitting employees against each other. The management says that he wants a work live balance but then the same day will requests that you come in on your days off.

Because managemet does not understand the business, they do not give clear direction. There is no accountability when it come to management, they point fingers at their staff.

The treatment of core employees vs. contractors is like night and day.If you want to work for this company make sure that you get on as a core employee only.

I've heard that other BU's are not as bad as Supply Chain (Major Projects, Eastern), but I'm not sure.
Pros
Pay is good
Cons
Stressful working conditions!
