Featured Review

Former Employee - Managing Director

I worked at TransAlta full-time for more than a year

Pros

People in middle management and below generally good and hard working.

Cons

Uncompassionate and ruthless leadership that only look out for themselves. People are treated as disposables and they will say it to you in your face, even when you are performing well or above... expectations. Leadership focused on raking in $$$ in bonus for themselves, but turn around and ding the people who worked hard, to avoid paying out bonus. HR is only in name and there to do the management's bidding.

Advice to Management

It's hopeless, no one listens. If they did, you wouldn't see a CEO with 88% disapproval rating consistently.
