A great company if you're not up and coming
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 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

Salaries are good salary although raises don't happen often and advancement is tough. Benefits were reduced from what they used to be but are still good.

Well organized productive company
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB30 April 2018
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.

Very Great Company!


I would like to go back after I graduate! I was accepted as an Engineering Coop Student from UVIC. The company treated me very well. I really appreciate all the mentoring and guidance they gave me.

Manager, Logistics and Materials Management (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB26 March 2018
TransCanada is an established mid-stream oil and gas company, and it shows. Excellent opportunities to do BIG things, opportunity to move laterally into new areas, and great work life balance.

Great place to work
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 March 2018
Spent many years working as an engineer in various positions. Great work / life balance, challenging, and in general a positive working culture. The company has changed since the business restructuring awhile back and it isn't as fun a place to work as it used to be, hopefully they can turn it around. It is a fairly dynamic work place that seems to move people around somewhat often unfortunately.
Pros
Good salary and benefits, lots of time off, reasonable work pace
Cons
Management and politics tends to get interesting too often. Lots of dead weight hanging around.

Good place to intern and have secure work, not ideal for young professionals looking to build a solid skillset, in my opinion. Some opportunities for field work.
Pros
Good co-workers
Cons
Resistant to change, way behind in tech

Generally good while it lasts...
Manager (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB20 February 2018
Not unlike many of the companies in Calgary, there have been and continue to be job cuts. Even employees with superior performance ratings, like myself and several others, will likely eventually find themselves on the wrong project or in the wrong area of the company that gets cut. This also affects performance of current employees who are often on edge, concerned about the longevity of their current positions.

TransCanada hires the best overall people and generally treats them pretty well. Most of the company is committed to work-life balance and diversity initiatives. The pay is probably towards the higher end for most employers. the company has good benefits, pension plan, ergonomic assessments, etc.

As most managers hire for fit, there are little to no employee relationship problems or organizational "terrorists". The culture is very team-based and collaborative, and strong performance is often recognized.
Pros
pay, work-life balance, generally good co-workers
Cons
job insecurity

Bad Management
Records Analyst (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB15 February 2018
TransCanada was a good place to work until the recent organizational changes in 2015. Good people/ managers were let go and replaced by managers that didnt know or care to learn about the departments they were now head of.
