Years ago Enbridge was THE place to work if you wanted to work for a large company. Excellent compensation, benefits, and a defined benefit pension plan that you rarely see any more.
Aside from compensation, nothing else was particularly great, though. The entire organization is structured so that no one has any power or authority, so nothing really ever changes or gets done. The company operates the same way it has since the '50s, old-fashioned to the point of being comical, with no direction and only their virtual monopoly stopping them from going out of business a dozen time over.
Nowadays, even the compensation isn't very good. The pension has been scaled back and most employees haven't had a raise in years. Lay-offs abound, opportunities for advancement are rare, and morale is so low you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who cares about anything.
Worse, the company has started outsourcing its jobs to India. Seriously - they've already laid off their AP and IT staff and given their jobs away to a foreign country. If you work for Enbridge, you spend your days knowing that management will kick you to the curb the moment they see an opportunity to save a buck by outsourcing your work.
My advice - stay far, far away from this soulless company.
Decent compensation and benefits
No work/life balance, no opportunity to progress, constant threat of lay-off, low morale, cold and uncaring management, outdated processes, poor corporate culture
