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

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
