Fast-paced workplace with incredible learning opportunities
Proposal Coordinator (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – December 15, 2013
SNC-Lavalin is a big company with many different branches and divisions, so opportunities are endless. Engineers often work on consultant-basis, so there is a lot of back and forth in engineering team between SNC and its competitors. I was fortunate to have a great manager (who did not like micromanagement, believed in me and gave me many opportunities to learn on my own), nice co-workers and an overall good experience. The hardest part was the pace and understaffing - sometimes there were so many projects going on at once that even pulling 12-hour shifts did not seem enough to get things done on time. The most enjoyable part was to work in a great team environment, in which facing any challenge was a growth and learning opportunity.
good management, caring coworkers, banked hours (translated into fridays off once a month), health benefits
long hours, tight deadlines, understaffing
