    Cons

    There are times we lack direction and communication like most organizations but if we want to be a leader in the industry we could improve on this. Also, people taking all the benefits we have for granted.

    Advice to Management

    Great leaders across the organization that show they trust and care for their teams in turn creating high performing teams. There are other leaders that have signed up to be a leader and have the opportunity to step up and engage, motivate and develop their teams. As well as contribute and build on the culture we have.

    I worked at ENMAX full-time

    Pros

    Pay Office location Vacation Employee events Relative stability

    Cons

    Bureaucracy Red tape “Old school” culture Lack of trust at and between all levels

    Advice to Management

    The people choosing to exit are high performers - dig in, ask the tough questions and look in the mirror as to why top talent is routinely leaving. There’s a lot to love about ENMAX, but the churn, politics and lack of trust in your people and transparent communication are pushing people to their breaking point (and beyond).
