    Everyone seems to like and enjoys their work, so upward mobility or even job changes opportunities are slow to materialize.

    Include training opportunities for career advancement, like six sigma and or other professional certifications.

    Pros

    Great environment, given your own cubicle and laptop, work with other interns in a very similar position as yourself. Get to work on multiple projects and at the end you present it to the top management and VP of Supply Chain

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be slow, not always a lot to do, it was their first time doing an internship with Supply Chain majors so you have to bare with them for they are learning at the same time as you.

    Pros

    Spectra Energy has a great working environment and everybody is very friendly.I very much enjoy working there. It's the best time to be in this industry and Spectra Energy is very competitive.

    Cons

    Things sometimes can go a little slow in terms of change but the corporation is currently working on that. Compensation may be a little less than competition.

    Pros

    The people are extremely nice--respectful and professional. The company respects each employee's time and life outside the office. Perks include annual bonus (based on company performance), cafeteria, and gym in building.

    Cons

    The team on which I work is not extremely well-organized (but is getting better); consequently decisions are often made by individuals without regard for the impacts to others. From what I understand, other teams are more structured.

    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 Management

    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.

  11. Committed to a work/life balance environment.
