    I worked at AltaGas full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    stock pays good dividend and vacation entitlement is decent

    Cons

    Not a respectful workplace. Management is selfish, not looking after employee's career or compensation. They only care their own pay and future.

    Advice to Management

    Executives promote too many unqualified buddies to be their SVP/VP (some even without decent university education or industry designation). It reflects poorly on company's leadership vision and staff quality.

    I worked at AltaGas full-time

    Pros

    Great location, generally good morale and lots of changes / new projects to work on

    Cons

    Upper management went through many major changes and projects would sometimes get benched. No vision or common goal during this time for everyone to align to.

    I worked at AltaGas full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, extra days off, decent people to work with at lower levels.

    Cons

    Company isn't what it was a few years ago. Lack of leadership by management is quite evident, especially with new projects. Many frustrated, qualified employees leaving for better opportunities. Salary is well below industry standards.

    Advice to Management

    Too many new projects and not enough qualified staff to deliver them. Listen to your employees at the lower levels. Refocus the direction of the company.

    I worked at AltaGas full-time

    Pros

    Progressive company. Power, utilities, oil and gas. Good benefits

    Cons

    Run by operations, preferred to hire inexperienced engineers and train. Then once the had some experience they would leave for a better job. So the lack of experience made the job challenging do to some poor decision making.
