My department had poor management.
This department has been sold in January 2017.
There was lack of management support but this concerns only this specific department. I cannot tell for the entire SNC Lavalin company

Coordonner les réunions et tenir les procès verbaux. Au besoin aider mes collèges dans le département des projets pour entré les données dans le système de base. Journée parfois différente des unes des autres. Pouvons être notre propre gestionnaire de notre temps pour nos tâches de travail. Toujours des points nouveaux a apprendre avec les baux commercial.
Travail se termine a 4h, mais parfois plus tard au besoin.

Position in NL both management & collegues were extremely helpful & supportive.
SENIOR EXPEDITOR (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL14 August 2017
I was hired in Calgary, AB on contract but agreed to become permanent within a year. A position became available in St. John's, NL shortly afterwards & as I'm from NL, I requested consideration. It was agreed that I would be on loan for two years. This was extended to three years.
A typical day was always busy. I learned how to participate/conduct meetings with Suppliers. Even though it was a fast paced environment everyone there, management included were very helpful & friendly.
The hardest part of the job was keeping on top of manufacturing, inspection & transportation schedules to ensure on time deliveries. Learning about the equipment requirements for a new industry - Power.
Best part was renewing old friendships & making new ones.
Pros
Being a part of a great project
Cons
Having to leave wheen my term was completed.

Manager, Facility and Tenant Services (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON11 July 2017
Great company to work for. Looking at advancing with SNC. If you have forgotten your Bell account's password, you can ask your manager or a colleague who reports to that manager to first reset your Bell account (generating a temporary password) that you can then change with the previous link.

Management-heavy organization
Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 June 2017
Decent salaries and benefits packages for all employees, but the top-heavy management levels of this organization leads to a bureaucratic web that takes 6 layers of approval to get anything done. While some of that can't be helped with such a large international organization, even during the current harsh economic times they have retained an inordinate amount of VPs/execs despite a significant reduction in the regular employee base that actually conducts the work.

Workplace culture can also be a tad divisive at times, with more efforts required on inter-discipline coordination / team-building. The hardest part of the job is maintaining 100% billable hours during the harsh economic times when client project budgets are scant and lay-offs abound.
Pros
Flex time, Deferred Profit Sharing Program
Cons
extensive bureacracy, stringent billable hours requirements
