Work Environment is average, typical 9-5 work day and found that the balance wasn't bad. Management really depends on where you are positioned. Job Security is not there unless you have put in 10 plus years and advancement is next to impossible.

This was one of the nicest places to work. Great coworkers, overall intelligent and understanding management that respected you and your opinions. The work can be somewhat overbearing at times, and the corporate office decision and changes were sometimes surprising and unexpected which was a bit frustrating, leaving us wondering about our job security. A lot of departmental rumours would always be the workplace gossip. The salary was good and bad. It depended on the union you were in. And with the constant union vs. the company fighting over the new collective agreements, strikes and benefit changes were always a possibility.
Pros
Great staff
Cons
Lack of flexibility

The best part of working with Fortis was my interaction with my field and operations team. I supported them with all the safety, compliance and regulated training programs along with daily HR coach/counsel for industrial relations and performance management. The down to earth tradesmen of this gas and electric utility industry made my day real, original and helped keep me grounded in the core business. I thrived on the ability to make a positive difference as I supported my leadership team at Fortis.
Pros
Changing environment with lots of opportunities for creative and autonomous work.
Cons
As the company grew, it sometimes became difficult to stay connected with all the leadership regularly.
