Building Maintenance (Former Employee), Kamloops, BCApril 30, 2014
Pros: everybody works as a team
Every morning I am greeted with a very friendly, Good Morning, and throughout the day the support of the team members is there. Each employee has there own routine and when part of the team isn't up to the challenge that particular day the rest of the team helps out. The best part of the day is being greeted an communicating with the tenants of the – more... buildings.All building issues that arise in a typical day are dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. – less

Intermediate Cost Controller (Former Employee), Calgary, ABApril 24, 2014
Pros: flexible office hours
Cons: different clients
I had a wonderful and fruitful years with SNC. My co-workers were easy to get along with and we worked as a team. I was involved in project control activities and i had the opportunity to go back in Saudi Arabia to work when the Saudi Aramco project was scheduled for construction. In October, 2011, i decided to push through with the plan of an early – more... retirement. This is the hardest part because i have enjoyed working with the whole project team for many years. I really appreciated the gesture of my project manager to contact him if ever i want to come back to work. After 9 months (July, 2012), he hired me as a part time employee which last until Jan. 2013. – less

Same as previous
Automation Engineer (Current Employee), Calgary, ABMarch 14, 2014
A typical day at work involves interacting with lots of engineers, designers and drafters at the office and vendors and sub vendors to complete engineering deliverables.

Co-workers are really supportive and help each other out with deadlines. Hardest part of the job is trying to meet deadlines while not losing out on the quality.

Proposal Coordinator (Former Employee), Toronto, ONDecember 15, 2013
Pros: good management, caring coworkers, banked hours (translated into fridays off once a month), health benefits
Cons: long hours, tight deadlines, understaffing
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 – more... 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. – less

Site electrical co-ordinator (Current Employee), Calgary, ABNovember 20, 2013
Pros: several..too many to mention all
I found the people working here very open minded and dedicated to their jobs, the interaction with everybody was easy and interesting. The hardest part was to adapt to a new country and to a new work environment but this was not as difficult as expected because I was helped enough and the atmosphere was always excellent and positive. I enjoyed the possibility – more... to be part of a team of skilled and professional individuals and really appreciated the positive attitude of all the persons I dealt with either directly or indirectly. – less
