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
Engineer (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – June 25, 2018
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.
Well paid job lacking company culture and under rewards high performers
Engineer II (Current Employee) – Massachusetts – April 2, 2018
Although well paid, the workplace lacked community and culture. Occasionally high stress during construction. Workload was always extremely variable which could be frustrating at times. Those who performed well were typically given the same increase as those who barely contributed to the company.
Analyst (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – March 30, 2018
The company transformation is obvious under the current management. Focus on the numbers, less information is better, outsourcing critical activities outside, promotion is based on the loyalty. Very sad to see cultural transformation.
