a good company to get exciting engineering fill. They have projects in mining, nuclear, transportation, power and many other exciting fields. Work is complex and high quality. If you want to be a hard core engineer SNC is it
Admin (Former Employee) – Barrie, ON – 30 May 2017
Full time employment. Very busy position. A typical day was spent doing computer work reviewing various and preparing contracts. The hardest part was way too much work as the company could not keep Managers.
Technical Support (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 24 May 2017
I was there for almost 2 years, and I truly enjoyed the various job tasks that had been given to me. If it wasn't for the fact of moving to Toronto because of my change of marital status, I would have stayed at the company.
Buyer, Projects (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 May 2017
- Rewarding work place if you are willing to commit and to take and active role. - Disciplines can tend to work in siloes with no strong effort from management to encourage increased collaborative work.

Terrible, unqualified managers who cover up their ineptitude by pushing staff to do their job. Frequent reminders that the job market is sparse.
Scientist (Former Employee) – Canada – 25 March 2017
The compensation for the hours worked and stress is very low. Staff is under stress as they are reminded constantly that they are lucky to have a job. Totally unqualified managers with lowest ethics I have ever encountered. Learned nothing and conversely had management consistently take credit for the staff's personal work. Coworkers are amazing but underappreciated. Often they hire entry level workers that they can abuse and don't know any better as they have never worked at a reputable company before.
Maybe other departments are better but mine was abysmal.
Power Engineer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 March 2017
No real training or safety essential courses were given. Expected to know your job and position first day you arrive. They have a hard time letting problem employees go. Creating animosity within the job.
