Toxic
Employee (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB27 July 2017
They treat you like cattle. You are only a number. The HR team is toxic and very nepotistic. Golden Handcuffs are the norm. Incompetant bum kissers get promoted and hard working employees get fired constantly. This is a bad place to work.

Excellent Management Team and Safety Culture
Senior Safety Inspector-Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Ft MacMurray24 July 2017
I thoroughly enjoy working with this group from the projects.
A typical day at work is one that rarely feels out of control. Everyone within the group tends to communicate and include quickly to find solutions to the day to day issues that come up.
The only hard part bout the job is being away from the family. Working away can take its toll. The schedule to be away can go a bit long.
My most enjoyable part is the people I work with. There's always a lot of laughs and support when you really need it.
Pros
Supportive team
Cons
long hours and long shifts away from the family

A Good Company
Senior Stratigic Sourcing (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB25 May 2017
The company policy is great, however the management in Supply chain is lacking experience. I have been working for many companies and this is the first time to see all department managers having zero supply chain experience. That caused a lot of issues to seniors staff as they always have to deal with wrong management decisions. When things goes bad managers are so good on plaming staff and not welling to take responsibility. My biggest challenge is career progression, there are very slim chance for experienced staff to become managers. Really depresing work environment. My other friends in other department are more happy. Hope Company VPs will pick directors and managers based on their Scm experience and performance not personal preferences.
Pros
Good health care
Cons
No career progression and poisend work environment

Manager, Technical Centre & Projects (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB9 May 2017
TransCanada unfortunately is not as innovative as it should be and mid-management is handicapped by not having strong upper management strategy/support. A persistent culture of decision making by collaboration stifles innovation which only reinforces the status quo.
Pros
Good salaries and work\life job balance
Cons
Constant change, decision making by collaboration, unwillingness to make appropriate operational step changes to align with industry best practices

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

Three rounds of business transformation after huge acquisition
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
