Quality Specialist (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 October 2018
I worked with great people at TC but the quality of the leadership is uneven. There are good competent managers but there are also many the shouldn't be there. The silo mentality has prevented the company from making the needed changes that the leadership has been trying to spearhead. Depending of your position, this can be very frustrating.
If you are in the right group, you may find the environment to be pleasant and positive. It is still a good company to work for and they generally treat you very well.

I really enjoyed working in TransCanada, the company culture is friendly and upright, work life balance is actively promoted, and creativity is fostered and encouraged. Due to this culture, I was able to actively take initiatives, and improved my team’s efficiency through programming.
Janitor/Cleaner (Former Employee) – Hardisty, AB – 3 August 2018
Trans Canada was a blast to work at! The terminal in Hardisty was so welcoming and everyone was very pleasant! Working at this company was filled with experience and gave me an idea of what it was like working in the industry.
Engineer (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 2 August 2018
The work environment at TransCanada has become overly negative and critical from the top down. Management has made a good place to work the last couple years not so great.
Repeated, constant criticism and cynicism directed towards younger staff has made it difficult to grow here. It's unfortunate that this is the experience of a young engineer as the company as a whole is a great one. The Salary/Benefits are unbelievable, but I wouldn't want to work here as a younger employee. It's a great place if you already have experience.
Many employees who move departments, are forced out, or otherwise quit are simply being replaced by contractors

Not sure what to say in regards to TransCanada. Lots of work and very busy. Contractors aren't treated well here. Work life balance is only good for Staff. Hate leaving here as I was a part of a good team

I worked in a division which was well organized and had a focus on attracting talented engineers. The company required high quality well thought out engineering and ensured staff had the resources to perform to the limits of their abilities.
