    I worked at ATCO full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Large, diverse organization. Many career opportunities. Community minded.

    Cons

    Unwieldy management structure. Over governed. Free thought was discouraged; seemed like everyone had to agree with Nancy Southern and her cronies. They preach “family” but are ruthless in terminating loyal, long serving staff.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The people are the pros. I've never worked with such a caring dedicated group of people. I'm so proud of them. The people at ATCO actually go above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to servicing their customers and getting projects executed.

    Cons

    Improper management of change. Yes, change was required at ATCO, we needed change - but the way it was rolled out was complete chaos. And it continues to be this way with all the feed back we've given them. They need to improve on this.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are quite good

    Cons

    CEO is running the company into the ground, employees don't matter a bit to her. She does all kinds of things her father would never have done. The company has really gone downhill in the last 5 years. Horrible work/life balance, it's just work work work Sold off the power division and screwed over hundreds of people's pensions without a care at all! Company has no values left at all.
