I worked at Spectra Energy

Pros

Spectra provides one of the best benefits package in the industry - add to that the 9/80 work schedule OR 1 day/week telecommuting option is just great.

Cons

Spectra's middle management is aging and are happy maintaining status quo till they retire - you'll do good at this company if you just follow your supervisor without questioning why and how things are being done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring more young blood into middle management - provide a clear career path for individuals who show promise and recognize them for their contributions.

    I have been working at Spectra Energy full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Spectra Energy provides a great work/life balance and supports its employees health and families. There is a lot of flexibility to move between groups/departments and learn new roles and grow your experience.

    Cons

    Timing is important when it comes to moving between groups and departments. Also, career progression can be difficult. Many folks leave the company looking for faster advancement or higher salaries. The company tends to lacks in that sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take pride in your employees and help them grow. There seems to be this consistent glass ceiling between employees, middle managers and upper management. Fear that if your employees start to know more than you, you will be replaced and thus, the management keeps their employees in check. That is when the rising employees begin to leave the company to search for more challenging and higher compensated positions.
