    I have been working at Spectra Energy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Excellent work life balance - 9/80, teleworking and part-time work.
    Health - there is a Nurse Practitioner on site and a clinic with two beds and nursing rooms. There is also a gym on sit
    Leaders - trustworthy and highly competent.
    Mid to Upper-level Management - usually leaves little to be desired.
    Great benefits - three weeks vacation immediately; 401(k) matching, pension and bonus.
    The company is always seeking to improve and always puts their employees first.

    Cons

    Salary is okay.
    Little room for growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I have been working at Spectra Energy full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and laid back work atmosphere.
    Mentorship program in place.
    Industry with lots of potential when gas prices pick up.

    Cons

    Opportunities to move up, let alone sideways, are few and far between.
    Management needs to encourage employee development & communicate with employees better, the only manager that I know did that left.
    I find it interesting that SET West has not been officially named "The employer of choice" in the media like Union Gas and the Houston office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue pushing the mentorship program
    Provide training for management so they can become effective leaders for employees.
