Cut-throat job culture with no appreciation on work done
Junior Field Technician (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON4 November 2018
The office where I work is small but the staff are unappreciative of the work I do. My co-worker is very rude and unfair as well. I cannot even address this problem to anyone in the office as there is no process for it and besides the management is not very friendly either.
Pros
Small company with easy access to management
Cons
Rude staff and co-workers

les conditions du travail sont très favorables
Soudeur qualifié (Former Employee) –  Sousse8 September 2018
stabilité de l'entreprise- les moyens de communication de plus en plus innovants : communautés- espaces collaboratifs - café
Entreprise d'envergure internationale , acteur économique, qui offre une bonne sécurité d'emploi
Les salaires élevés, pas forcément par rapport aux autres collegues mais par rapport aux autres entreprises. Le secteur de la construction mécanique paye très bien. de Plus y'avais tous les avantages d'une entreprise comme la SNC LAVALIN (intéressement, participation, mutuelle, prévoyance, congés, ...). Pas à dire, on est choyés pendant cette période de travail
Pros
la remémoration
Cons
aucun point négatif

Substation Design Engineer (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC22 August 2018
SNC Lavalin is an international engineering company that has built many highly technological advanced transport and infrastructure systems. They are highly qualified in the power delivery services and provides the full EPCM range of services. I thoroughly enjoyed my colleagues and enjoyed a greate relationship with our one client. That is the problem. When that client does not contract work out then the company lays people off. In this way they have lost some excellent talent to the rest of Canada and the US. The employees are very welcoming and supporting. Company events are fully sponsored and reasonable time is allowed to be taken off. Great benefits but no bonus
Pros
Challenging career opportunities
Cons
Unstable workload which can lead to lay-offs

Engineer (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON10 June 2018
Every day is an enjoyable day at work!
There is not much focus on employee development and growth;
Management has several VPs in Business Development who bring in no business!
Workplace culture is healthy and productive with good work-life balance;
Hardest part of the job is work planning - because of last minute surprises.
The most enjoyable part of the work is flexi-time and work sharing between colleagues.
Pros
Great Work-life balance
Cons
Poor opportunities for advancement
