Engineer II (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – August 22, 2018
Most days are spent in meetings, on conference calls, or in a car driving to a meeting that should have been a conference call. Management does not encourage learning or growth, so many employees leave to escape career stagnation. Performance is not rewarded. Promotions are given very sparingly and politically. Coming into the office feels like punching an attendance card. It pays well, but not compared to competitors.
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) – United States – September 11, 2018
There are good guys there to work with but to supervisors and up you are a nobody and they do not care about you. Management is horrible and completely disconnected you are far below them and they have no need to listen to you or hear what you truly have to say. Recently there has been a mass exodus from this company do to the direction it is going. Several rumors out there that they will be going to be overtaken by another company within a few years and all will be gone.
Sr. Project Manager - HMI SCADA Control Systems (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – August 17, 2018
Bad place to work. Enbridge does not care about the employees and is a poorly managed company. The management team is not connected with the real issues within the organization. There is a vey bad culture at Enbridge. Very low employee and contractor morale.
Green Power Transmission and Data Analyst (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – June 26, 2018
Started great, and in the last year the company went through reorganization changes and all the original employees were let go and new people came in, The green energy side of the company was sold and the employees who specialized in the green energy were no longer needed. The new management had no previous experience in green energy. My co-workers worked great as a team, and the management before the change worked well with all. I enjoyed learning new things at Enbridge.
Learning new things and taking on challenges
I knew more than the new bosses and often trained them without recognition.
Employees are simply dollars they reallocate all the time

Enbridge just acquired Spectra Energy in 2017 which means that executives receive golden parachutes and regular employees get laid off; some with severance pay and others with very little. When you double the size of the company, the board of directors and shareholders don't want double the employees, and whoever is not laid off picks up double the workload with the same pay.
Great coworkers, great work / life balance
Acquisitions are not for the benefit of the employees
This is a Canadian company - the center is in Calgary. If you are at any other location you are expendable. The company is very slow at making decisions and behaves/decides much like a very immature smaller company.
Business Development (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – May 3, 2018
Enbridge has a lot of good people working at it. Unfortunately there are a lot of factors that make getting projects done quite difficult. I do not think it is a bad place to work but it doesn't have the healthiest environment.
Struggling with merger and business changes/reductions
Director (Former Employee) – US – April 30, 2018
Generally the people are good to work with. The IT management is under alot of change and there have been several workforce reductions and outsourcing. Overall the work atmosphere is not good but they are attempting to make things better.
