Excellent opportunity
Advisor (Ancien employé) –  Wabamun, AB30 novembre 2019
I had an amazing experience, although brief, that allowed me to be a part of a brilliant team and meet people in all areas of the plants, mine, even the CEO in the first few months. It was exciting and I was proud to work there and grateful for the people I met and the work they do.

Bound to struggle
Senior Advisor Aboriginal Relations (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB14 janvier 2019
This centenary company has been struggling now for over 7 years due to poor upper management. There is a serious lack of communication between the management team and the rest of the company, and people's efforts go unnoticed and/or unrecognized. As a result, TransAlta doesn't seem to keep their talented employees happy and they end up leaving sooner or later.

The several rounds of layoffs in the past 3 years have created an unbearable atmosphere of mistrust and insecurity among employees. People are constantly trying to take credit for coworkers' achievements, in an effort to stay employed.

The Board of Directors needs to clean house and fire the whole upper management team if this company is to survive.
Points positifs
Some good opportunities to train yourself
Points négatifs
Poor Management

It was okay
Jr. Systems Analyst (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB26 septembre 2018
Working at TransAlta was different and interesting. Most of the time it was quite unprofessional. But, there was an opportunity to further improve skillsets.

You don't want to work here
Corporate (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB19 septembre 2018
No work life balance, salary and benefits are no longer competitive with the utility sector, revolving rounds of layoffs, high employee turnover rate, and poor culture / office morale. Only pluses are the front line staff (some really nice people work here), and the cafe has a really good breakfast.

Great place to work and be challenged
Manager (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB5 septembre 2018
Same as summary. Review is dated and probably not relevant.

I have no detailed review to submit, company has much changed since I worked there. Any comments I have now would be of little or no value.

Extremely poor leadership.

Senior management only concerned with lining their pockets
Senior Business Analyst - Gas Fleet (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB25 mai 2018
4 re-organizations in 6 years and yet the CEO retains her role when her leadership and poor decision making eroded the value of the company. A prime takeover target.

average day
Pressure Welder/maintenance man (Ancien employé) –  Keephills, AB10 avril 2018
we started at 7 every day, go through a tailboard with all maintenance men and foremans then break off into our groups and get our job for the day. We got two coffee breaks and a half hour for lunch, if your job was big enough to take all day you just went back to work if not you would make sure everything was cleaned up from last job and go start the new job. i did a lot of welding build up, cut out and replace and then i would do a lot of mechanical work too valves had to be taking apart cleaned or changed pumps stripped and fixed so every day was different really
Points positifs
good pay, steady work, always something new and the guys worked with
Points négatifs
wasn't run the best, breathing in cole fines all day, always working in extreme temps.

Free lunches, good people
