    I have been working at TransCanada full-time for more than 8 years


    Good office culture, generally a great bunch of people working here, nice to have 4 day long weekends in the summer


    Would be nice to have more flexible work schedules - ie working from home and/or working longer hours for 2 fridays off a month (like another big firm across the street!)
    Typical large company, lots of bureaucratic IT policies like making a business case in order to get new software
    Computers can be very old and slow, upgrade time is long

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
