CWR Process Specialist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 February 2019
Great working environment with focus on staff training and work-life balance. Good place for someone interest honing their professional skills and develop a better understanding of the pipeline industry.
Utilities (Former Employee) – Ontario – 8 February 2019
The worker attitude is horrible. Yes the pay is good and you have alot of time off, but due to the constant threat of layoffs and poor moral from self entitled employees, you are stressed and miserable all the time. I would not recommend working here. I have worked many places before working at Enbridge and Enbridge takes the cake by far for the most twisted and screwed up places to work. I was glad to finally leave and I don't look back. Any job is better than a job in this company. This place is full of nepotism. Can I say that again? FULL OF NEPOTISM. If you a great worker but are not friends with the right person, you will be disliked. Most people who work here are incompitent and do a horrible job but they kiss the right persons butt. Hence why they have so many leaks and spills. If an agency came in and done a survey on who is related/close friends with management, they would see that 80% of people only got in Enbridge because of that and not because of their credentials. Then once those ones are in, it becomes of battle of who can kiss the most butt and backstab the other person. Don't be blinded by the pay. Money doesn't buy happiness.
utility fitter (Former Employee) – North Cental district, Richmond Hill – 3 February 2019
service fitter for 42 years,great place to work,really enjoyed meeting my customers and helping them meet their goals,hardly any recognition for doing a good job, lots of incentives for safe driving,perfect attendance disappeared,25 year club,felt great pride in being a member,cut to save money-big loss to me, company would spend on feel good initiatives freely but cheaped out with employees,stopped giving food cards at Christmas,said money donated to a charity( like in Seinfeld) Layoffs happened with no planning,felt they spinned a wheel and threw darts to choose
Dynamic workplace where the rewards matched the demands of the job.
HUMAN RESOURCES BUSINESS PARTNER, LEAD (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 January 2019
Policies, programs and perks are first rate. Leadership development has lagged in recent years. Executive and Senior leadership is somewhat oblivious to the everyday reality of the impacts of their decisions. There is no real focus on the development of talent so unfortunately, good people leave far too frequently. There is a deep culture of "who you know" instead of "what you can do". That said, there is a lot to learn and its a great training ground for those who are not afraid to work hard.
total rewards package has few equals in the industry
Team Leader/Supervisor (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 18 December 2018
Enbridge culture is truly awful - years of layoffs and thousands of jobs lost and very little leadership to help employees through this or help staff focus on an "end game"... few employes (if any) would be able to explain what the point of the endless restructuring is. Very profitable company, but employees feel like a liability and easily disposable. High performers are jumping ship, with high voluntary turnover in some offices. Leaders only communicate in a very scripted way, and while Corporate can churn out endless programs, initiatives, and hashtags to try to improve the culture, they've missed the obvious - that people just want to be talked to and treated like humans, respected and valued.
Recognition for experience at other companies counts for vacation time seniority
Horrible company culture, poor leadership at the top, poor communication, inauthenticity, everything is scripted
Horrible management. Horrible team spirit. Watch yourself.
Work Management Clerk (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 10 December 2018
Over the years I’ve been working here I’ve been seeing the team spirit and employee satisfaction go down. Christmas parties removed. No more team engaging activities. No encouraging team leads. Poor management and job advancement.
The only thing that is good is the money and the benefits are OK. Could be better for union employees. After a while you get tired of the money and your happiness goes down the drain. I’ve spoken to many senior staff over the years and they have been there for so long because they have settled basically. There is no challenge in the work you do and there is a lot of criticism. The TEAM spirit is simply not there. You have to watch yourself at every turn. You have to make sure you note everything down in case something happens and you can prove it was not of your doing. This job has made me a follower and no longer a leader. I shy in my corner because of fear of retaliation. Little things
Major Projects & Programs - Project Manager (Current Employee) – North York, ON – 5 December 2018
- manage complex pipeline and/or facility related projects - manage on-site work of different portfolios - work/life balance is very strong here - everyday is a different day in terms of challenges, which keeps things very interesting
An alright place to work but limited growth opertunities
Engineer (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 22 November 2018
Has been a good place to work as I have learned lots about the industry. Have a great supervisor so work-life balance has been great. Unfortunately with all the resent restructuring there is very limited job growth potential within this organization. When I first joined the culture was very pro-employee development and pro-employee retention. This is no longer the case. Employees are just numbers now. Compensation, they pay alright but not great for the industry. Pay within the company is very inconsistent which can be frustrating.
Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – North York, ON – 22 November 2018
I worked for Consumers Gas for many years, it was a great environment, the pay was good and so were the benefits. Management was great, and I enjoyed my job. Unfortunately, they began downsizing and things started to change. Job security was no longer there, and many people left.
Senior Quality Specialist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 15 November 2018
Enbridge was a good place to work, great people, great safety culture, Daily meetings, the hardest part of the job was educating people on processes. I enjoyed helping people to understand work processes, and working on a continuous improvement ideal.
Consultant (Former Employee) – Brunswick, NB – 9 November 2018
My bosses were always great fed into my potential and pushed me to new heights . It took me a while to get into working wit people who didn't share my ideals but at the end of the day it was fun and productive .
Pipeline/project Engineer - Major Projects (Former Employee) – Edmonton, Alberta – 2 November 2018
Working at Enbridge initially was a dream. The company cared for its employees and pushed them to be better. Now its the exact opposite. opportunities for advancement are also minimal and acknowledgment of good work is few and far between.
