Unless you are very upper leadership, I think this workplace has pretty good work-life balance, but there is no maternity policy at all.

    Flexibility is very position-dependent, not universal.

    Maybe. Depends on the position. If you're in an admin role, it's pretty dead-end; if you are higher, you have more chances to progress.

Make sure you're adequately compensated. I know men at lower levels than me, with the exact same background making 30% more. Once you're in, it's hard to get your pay adjusted.

Great company where you can meet amazing and fascinating people. It’s the type of place that you can work hard and learn a lot. Reaching to top is a lot to do with commercial value, connections and sometimes nationality. There are not so many women in leadership roles.

This is not an employee-centric company; there’s not a culture of seeking to retain, train and promote employees.

    Legal department offers more flexibility than most departments; this workplace is not generally flexible.
  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    5 paid / 12 unpaid

    I took leave outside of the normal policy limits of 12 weeks. The policy allows for 12 weeks, of which 5 are paid (if you apply for short term disability).

TransCanada truly seems to value having women in positions of authority. There are several senior women I see as mentors for my career progression. My boss is female, and her boss, and her boss.

    This is based on the Legal Department and might be different in other departments.

    Reduce bureaucracy and get rid of the check-box process culture, which favors form over substance.

Overall, great place to work. Very comfortable job, but can be difficult to move up and get challenging assignments. Need to get better at getting women in Senior leadership roles.

I can speak to headquarters, not our salons. We do have a lot of amazing people and a majority of women below Vice President, and it’s a fun and collegial place to work.

    I work at headquarters, in Minneapolis. New CEO (started 4/2017) has really pulled back on flexibility, saying people should not be working from home and ending the summer Fridays policy. It’s been a big culture shift.

Ask some tough questions on gender equality and opportunities for women to be mentored. Still carries a scent of the good ole boys system but it needs to be addressed. The corporate legal team is tough for women.

    Some departments aren’t very supportive of parental leave.
