    I have been working at TransCanada full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    good people, good benefits, and opportunities for those who are young

    Cons

    political environment which is counter to corporate values

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Those in management need to be more seasoned individuals. The depth and breadth of one's work experience, and not youthfulness and education, should be the determining factor into who excels at TransCanada.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX (US)
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX (US)

    I have been working at TransCanada full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, great work & life balance, and good people to work with

    Cons

    Promotion is not based on performance, rather seniority. Pay is not tied to performance. Unnecessary need to use team leads that adds another layer to business processes. No minority member of the executive leadership team, not even in the Director position, VP, Senior VPs, or Executive Leadership Team (it's still a white man's world at TransCanada).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Eliminate team leads, we're are all professionals and not high school student at a grocery store that needs someone to push us around and monitor our actions. Delegate and people will more than deliver. Hire or promote a minority member to the executive leadership team. Tie pay and promotion to performance not Seniority.
