Engineer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 30 April 2018
The branch I worked for performed poorly from the clients perspective. The Dept heads, in general, abused their positions. They were usually the last to arrive in the morning and first to leave at the end of the day. With this example a lot of the staff wasted hours everyday playing online games, waiting at Tims, and wandering the mall.
Engineering (Former Employee) – Toronto, Canada – 11 April 2018
I joined during a busy time with many projects. I worked in a great department with great people. People's experiences will all be different, but I have positive things to say about SNC. The benefits are good, compared to WorleyParsons.
Chef de discipline- Gestion des matériaux (Former Employee) – Montréal, QC – 29 March 2018
Bonne liberté de travail dans un milieu où les dirigeants vous donnent les outils pour vous aider à progresser dans votre carrière. Cependant la durée de l'emploi est basé sur des projets. Donc pas de projets, il y a grande possibilité de mise à pied.
Bon endroit pour connaitre et approfondir son travail
Manager, Logistics and Materials Management (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 26 March 2018
SNC is a project oriented company which means that all work activities must be looked through the lens of scope, schedule and budget. This can be frustrating for some, but it is also a driver for focus with emphasis on delivery. It is not for everyone, but those who enjoy pushing themselves and grow faster than industry should look towards SNC.

Not Worth the time. Engineering Jobs will soon be outsourced to India just like IT.
Structural Engineer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 17 March 2018
Coorporate decided to outsource IT to India and they laid off a massive amount of Collegues in Canada. They just joined Atkins and with their Engineering center in india most of the work will be outsourced as well. This has already started with Canadian Projects already being done there. Management style is based on a Fireman approach put the fires out as they come along. No real long term planning, senior management spends a lot of money at conferences for themselves but they dont invest much in the people who actually do the work.. Work environment is ok, nothing to brag about. Our Head office is in Montreal and when they dont have work they come this way to steal work from locals and they do it in a very bullish way. This company strength is a lot of finacial backing but as far as a well managed company goes, it is certainly not.
Low Salary, Bad management, Terrible Head office attitude and Benefits were downgraded last year.
Productive and fun work place with fully accessible gym
LEAD COST CONTROLLER (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 16 March 2018
A wonderful company to work with . I learned a lot of experience by dealing with different stakeholders e.g. Buyers , Contracts Specialists , Project Manager , Planner & Scheduler and Construction Manager. Working environment is excellent and every one , including high management , is very cooperative. All the quality and control procedures are in place. The hardest apart of the job is sometime I have to manage 5-6 projects at a time. The most enjoyable part of the job is , once the project is completed and handed over to the Client , the whole team get a big appreciation from the Client and high management.
Records Management (Current Employee) – Mount Pearl, NL – 2 March 2018
Company is micro-managed with different viewpoints from each department which causes friction. Staff are easygoing and friendly. Often required to work later hours with very short notice. Job culture is pleasant overall. Communication is sometimes poor between departments.
