Run Far Away from 401 Hanlan

Unless you culturally align with the people you are working with run in the opposite direction. Otherwise you’ll work the hardest and get paid the least and when it’s time to allocate raises it goes to the managers friends and people of similar background and not the ones who actually worked to make the company money.

Long days,heavy work load,bad management

A happy hive makes more honey!! Lavalin managedment acted like wasps!! No concept of how to run a team or how to work together!! All about the power of title!! Therefore made an unpleasant atmosphere for all.


Beautiful Camp, great gum . activities, food was like nothing I've ever seen!!, Medical facilities and staff were great., Transportation provision was spot on.


Long hrs, outrageous work load, bad management!!

Productive and fun workplace would love to work with them again.

A very good company to work at/with. Had so much fun gained so much experience in a short period of time. Managers and the supervisors were very professional and very helpful. Good packages. The management team was very knowledgeable and organized overall they knew their job.


Free lunch. Good comfortable rooms and bedding

Closed and regressive

The clique mentality is deplorable. I’d recommend looking elsewhere for rewarding employment. Condescension, sarcasm and ridicule are the management tactics I met with. Looking down from their self aggrandized ivory towers, belittling and manipulation. Toxic narcissism is how best to describe the mgmt.


Regular pay


Give up your self esteem

Don’t go work there

Management is detached, and old style autocraty Personal success is impeded by the offshore outsourcing of development and support workHighly siloed and departmental divisions, with a lack of vision (or the communication of it in any cases)


Downtown offices is nice, pay is good


Inefficient, highly political workplace.

Au delà de mes attentes

Une entreprise qui fait vivre ses valeurs: sécurité, intégrité, collaboration, innovation. Des employés professionnels, engagé dans un environnement de travail moderne et respectueux. L'équipe est très collaborative et l'équipe de gestion bienveillante.

All around awful

The construction industry has been broken at a fundamental level for quite some time now, so no one should be looking to spend a single second being stuck in this career path. Sometimes you may have to take time off because there will be nothing to do, other times you'll be swamped for months on end. Extremely poor work/life balance with barely any rewarding pay. The work itself is also uninteresting with barely any intellectual challenging aspects.As for the company itself, SNC-Lavalin is one of the worst ones. It has rightfully earned its poor reputation and whole at a face level they seem to care about their employees somewhat, you can be assured they are as soulless and evil as every other large corporation out there. The head offices will meddle with the affairs with smaller offices (such as laying off people without understanding the intricacies of the office where these people worked in), will not handle "human resource" manners properly, and just is all around a cold, heartless place to work in. That's corporate "culture" for you I;dr - STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS

Productive and fun workplace

I truly appreciate all the skills and opportunities this office has provided me. I would like to express my sincere thanks for the continuous support, advice, and inspiration during my tenure of work. I have learned many valuable things from my seniors, supervisors, and colleagues so, I am always grateful to them for their continuous help and support. I will miss all of them around the office and my colleagues. I really enjoined working together with all of them. I wish to work in this company again if I get any suitable position in the future. I would like to wish the whole entire team continuous success as well as the continuous growth of the SNC Lavalin company.

Environnement de travail pénible.

Entreprise à éviter. Tous mes collègues sans exception se plaignaient de la façon dont l’entreprise fonctionne. Aucun respect pour leurs employés.
