Contractor - Developer
Developer (Current Employee), Calgary, ABMay 12, 2014
Pros: great environment, great benefits for full time employees (stock options, health/dental, flex fridays, etc.)
Cons: little to no room for serious advancement
First job when I graduated. Great pay as a contractor, easy work, solid management with clearly defined goals. Co-workers are great and a great way to learn if you've never been in the oil and gas sector. However, you are pigeon-holed into the role you have without much room for advancement. Only if you want to get into management is there any room – more... to advance and that takes a long while (as in 10 years in some departments). Therefore, staying a contractor is your best bet if you want to advance in your career (i.e. moving onto another company after you've gained your experience). Still, for those who want security and easy work, staying where they are for at least 5 years to really learn the industry, it's a great place to be. – less

aaccoutant (Former Employee), CalgaryJanuary 24, 2013
Pros: decent salary
Cons: management is very out of touch
Very high turn over in certain departments. Contract workers rarely lasted more than 3 months. Very high nepotism. You are nothing but a number. Advancement is non-existant. Polish up that resume and leave as fast you can.

Great company to be with
B Mechanic (Former Employee), Long Island cityJuly 3, 2014
Pros: free lunch, constant raises, benefits
Cons: management
This company is great. A lot of benefits and room for growth. Pay is good. Overtime is plenty. The only complaint I would have is management and how they micro manage. Nothing is prioritized and job planning is a joke. Calgary has no idea what really goes on in this power plant.

Great Working Experience
Employee (Current Employee), Houston, TXJune 23, 2014
Pros: great networking and community involvement
Cons: no personal growth, inconsistent management styles
TransCanada is a great company to work for, the environment is mostly friendly. A change in management presented communication barriers.

There are many inconsistencies amongst the existing departments and the Canadian sector runs things much differently than the US and Mexico sectors.

The areas that present the most challenge are: internal communication, – more... employee development.

Overall, the company has more positives than negatives and is very diverse. – less

Management is disconnected & out of touch with employees
Buyer (Former Employee), Houston, TXJuly 12, 2012
Pros: good co-workers
Cons: contract employees are treated as non persons
Management does not speak to or acknowlege employees.
Much time is wasted in meetings that had nothing to do with my job.
Supervisor constantly complained that we were behind without taking into account that we were down one person due to an illness & would not allow overtime.
Management could not decide what priority was most important.
Supervisor – more... had favorites & did not acknowledge our efforts to get caught up. Management did not have a clue as to what our jobs entailed and wasn't interested in learning.
Any decision has to be deferred to Canada.
Good co-workers.
I really enjoyed my job. The time flew by because we were so busy. – less
