Great opportunities and possibilities to growth. Covid has put a dent to the experience as most managers now think that because you are working from home you can work 24/7. But other than that great place to work.
Pros
Career growth
Cons
Project directors

Great coworkers in Calgary but upper management in Edmonton were out of touch. Very long hours as they tried to maximize the time spent out of the office. Loved what I did, just didn't like the bureaucracy behind the scenes.
Pros
Great staff
Cons
Extremely over worked at times, can be very stressful

Unless you have the credentials and drive to climb the management ladder, you should probably give this a pass. If you just want your steady job and your secure place as a team member without getting into the corporate cultural race (because your life is more than your job), there are much better places for you than SNC. You are always expendable at SNC.

One of the best engineering company but senior management for Oil and Gas is especially in Canada is not showing interest, what they learned is not adopted. They favour some team mates instead of accepting them...
Cons
Too much stress

It is what is expected of an Engineering firm. You only are safe if the company has projects. The company pay relocation and give good layout severance. The environment is as good as the people in your project. I made good friends and have good time at SNC Lavalin T & D.
Pros
Salary and benefits
Cons
Security

90% of the employee are spending 5-6 hrs./day in office rumours, politics, back stabbing.A typical day at work includes 50% doing other peoples job.Avoid unless you are starving.

Employment is typically contract, so when the contract ends your position might end too. The company has a good training program and can be a fun place to work. You could however end up on a team with difficult management. If you end up on a team like that don’t expect to get anywhere, that type of team environment is strictly who you know not what you know. Not all teams are that way, but many are. This industry is project based so you could wind up unemployed once projects are completed.
Pros
Paid education, decent benefits.
Cons
Could have long hours. Project is done so are you. Some horrific management.
