It's all about profit and nothing more. There's 0 investment in employee programs or benefit. The management is constantly fighting each other impending you to do your basic job.

There's big lack of leadership skills within senior management and excecs.

I've seen discrimination against minorities and women at headquarters and project office levels.


Avoid this company!
Pros
Fair group plans and work/life balance

Stressful workplace. They not want to pay for training for you to advance in their company (ie government certification which would make you more qualified for your job). When they advertise for a “offshore NDT position” make sure you get it in writing that you will be on a three on three off rotation (which they will not do, and this will be your red flag that this position doesn’t actually exist and you will be in a call out position “ADHOC”) as all the regular rotation positions are filled. ADHOC positions could possibly be called out once every few months or more. On shore “NDT” positions consists of a 95% visual labor intensive job pulling slings (metal wire rope) with very little actual NDT work. Management (onshore job) will lie to you and say when there’s no NDT work you will be doing visual inspections in the sling yard which will be 95% of the time as this is most/all the onshore work they have.
Pros
Nice coworkers.
Cons
Horrible management

Je crois que l'entreprise perd de son lustre. Elle utilise maintenant les mêmes tactiques qu'ailleurs soit des promesses vides pour en obtenir plus de la part des juniors. Salaire à l'embauche intéressant mais les augmentations sont moindres que l'augmentation du coût de la vie... passe.
Pros
Conciliation travail famille
Cons
Peu ou pas de support

Management doesn't know a lot about their business but doing the best they can. Fair salary and benefits. Good work life balance. Left alone for the most part which is good if you know what you're doing.

Hard-workers will love this company. The processes are much more complicated than other company but you also learn a lot from how bigger company does things. Great team to work along with. Even though there are heavy over time, at least the team is working along with you and we had a great team and manager.
Pros
Strong learning curve for future
Cons
Long hours during month end

Good for young professionals looking for fast paced challenges with high pay. Be ready to self-learn as co-worker buddy system is not in place anymore. Be ready to work lots extra hours for simultaneous demands from management.

Not great but good enough.

The people worth keeping ate let go.


There is a sense that a high turnover rate is healthy and good for the company.


Dont realize that high turnover rates cost more in the short and long run, as it is costly to train new employees.

There was a great deal of competent experienced people working at SNC Calgary office. Montreal was difficult to deal with and had many incompetent people in Management positions that were ill suited for their roles. This created many stresses and wasted time with meetings. Benefit package was good, Salary was good.

Upper management was very supportive in the beginning, then new reporting manager was the opposite. Work culture got toxic, and didn't feel like I fit anymore.
Pros
In the downtown core

Poor management, no direction on what tasks and responsibilities were
