Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Advisor - Stakeholder & Indigenous Relations

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

Pros

Most people who write reviews on sites like Glassdoor are those disgruntled because of layoffs or personal issues with their supervisors. The truth is those of us who are happy about our place of... work never take the time to share the other side of the story. I have been with TransAlta for 4 years now. In the past 25 years, my career has taken me to all four corners of the globe working on sustainable development projects. I have had the privilege to be mentored by some of the greatest professionals around. Yet, I don't remember ever working for a more innovative, progressive company than TransAlta Corporation. Not one or two, but three of the supervisors I've worked with in this company have taken the time to make sure I'm involved in projects I find meaningful. The level of trust is one of the highest I have ever encountered and ideas and suggestions are listened to and followed on. Most of the people I work with work hard because they feel respected and appreciated. Lately, the Management Team in the Company has involved us all in a culture-changing exercise; and the results have been outstanding. A positive attitude is contagious and ours is spreading rapidly. I truly look forward to the rest of my career here, and I know of many others who feel the same way about TransAlta.

Cons

No company is perfect but this one comes really close

Advice to Management

Keep involving the key innovators in the process of bringing this company to new heights. Some of the best ideas come from front-line employees.
