Poor discipline of budgets from CGL project and labor troubles leading to impacts of OTHER groups throughout the company. Senior leaders say "we are all in this together" as desperate measures are taken to keep TC afloat, prop stock price up, and... — read more
Erosion of benefits
My increase was just under 5%…. But what I find interesting is all of the employee benefits that have been slowly eroded over the last two years. First it was the elimination of 6 flex days and now it’s the elimination of medical benefits for... — read more
Are people quitting after getting their bonus?
Hearing rumours. Good on them if true
What kind of raise did you get?
I’ll start. 5% for a financial analyst 4..
Hiring Freeze, is it the beginning?
With the ELT announcement of hiring Freeze as part of Focus and hinting for reduction, is there layoffs coming soon?
Some senior people let go. Is this the beginning of focus? The masses wonder.
Employee town hall
So it is confirmed, lay offs will happen as they finish evaluating the fit for purpose model. Canada made some Org changes and some BU in the U.S. Assume more to follow end of Feb early March.
Here it comes change 100
Week of Feb 1, announcement of reorg and lay offs.
Are things getting any better?
I left a little more than half a year ago. I'm not saying that I regret it, but I'm not much better off in my new company than I was here. I am interested in whether anything changed for the better in the meantime?
Keystone - more work ahead
I look forward for more busy 2023 year, God bless. With Keystone pipeline project back, I hope things will improve. Happy New Year all!
So when will the axe fall from project focus
And how can I get on the list?
A matter of trust
There is a big gap in trust between employees and management here, going in both directions. It's terrible when that happens, makes an awful work atmosphere. I think there are only a few lucky ones here who can really trust their manager?
Fire 300 people from IS and then post a day in the life of the CIO. Wow
Cutting deep in IS
Losing up to 300 people as our fearless CIO is outsourcing all of our jobs. It’s great to see that he is still posting on LinkedIn about how he is a guest speaker at a disrupter conference. Outsource and ki-l a department I guess that’s how you... — read more
Update your timesheet to the end of the year…
…so HR can properly calculate your severance.
How do you get promoted here?
While some people get promoted every 2 to 3 years, other high-performing and well-liked people have been stagnate for years despite following their development plans and talking to their leaders regularly. How do you stay motivated when the effort... — read more
In the next few weeks, lay offs in the USNG BU. Tech Center already transferred individuals to other BUs as well as releases of individuals. USNG groups received email last week of changes. Good luck everyone.
This used to be a great company
Now that I’m leaving, I wonder why this company has fallen so much from the glorious old days. Where did it actually go wrong?
TC is sinking
We've turned into one of the most disorganized companies I can think of. How we're staying afloat is beyond me.
Town hall announces layoffs?
Bye bye IS department
Our fearless CIO announced today they are outsourcing almost the entire operations team. Good luck getting any support for your apps or computers now.
Posting Performance Review Letters on LinkedIn!
I never thought I’d see kids posting their performance letters from Francois publicly on LinkedIn to brag about their “exemplary performance” and not only NOT get socially scorned, disciplined or dismissed—they get a chorus of thumbs up! What a... — read more
To the person who posted about not returning to office- covid cases are on the rise …my team alone has been decimated by it and are mostly back at home this week. Give it a couple weeks before we all are….this sh** is never ending
How is it that the person accountable for billions of cost overruns and massive schedule delays on projects like Saddle West, Napanee, various pipeline loops and Coastal Gaslink gets rewarded with a CEO job elsewhere? I mean it’s cool they built... — read more
What happens if you refuse to go back in? My colleagues are already getting sick left right and centre
Why is it cyber security gets to work from home permanently yet I can’t get even get an exception for one of my staff who has a medical reason? Is anyone else tired of the money pit we call IS and leadership over there doing whatever the he-l they... — read more
Just a quick question
Nothing would suit me better than a voluntary layoff. Is there any chance that they will offer that option as well?
TechCentre Layoffs start date?
When are they starting and how do I get included? I want to get packaged out of this joke of a company that’s taken a total turn downhill since Russ’s departure
To the post below, yes. Interesting that TC preaches ethics, collaboration and integrity. Huge lie. I know Directors on the take with wife in contracts. Racists Managers who promote others on the good ol boy system and southern charmers. Yes, the... — read more
Lucky to have a job
I still can't believe that my manager told me I can only feel lucky to have a job. I guess that's a "reward" for all my efforts so far. Have you ever been told that?
OpenText is awful!
Who decided to bring in this piece of trash! It has added so much time to my work in supply chain! The damn project has been going on forever and feels like we have had about 20 different PMs. I’m sure this was cheap to implement as well.
Our new CEO is such a crock
How can he sit in a zero talks and a safety standown and say that contractors are one of us and they are no different than a full time employee when we just branded all our contractors with contractor in their email and forced them to change their... — read more
Everyone happy with their raises/bonus?
No guidepost adjustment for 2022….
I'm really interested in what the quarterly results will be and so I'm reading some analysts' predictions. I find it most interesting to see that they think the company has “Significant Growth Potential”. Okay, maybe it has, but how much is it... — read more
So much sexism
My last post disappeared but this needs to be said. There is so much sexism at this company. If you're female and you address it, you're out the door. Women have to work 3 times as hard to get 1/3 of the recognition. At the town hall, Francois... — read more
