Not a Place to work

Lots of back stabbing and poor management practice especially at management level. Principal engineer and the management team wasn't that supportive. You will need to find your own work to survive. Unless you have enough work to take with you, this is not the place. Lots of politics - if you are good at kissing a**ses. still not vey ethical.

Over worked most of the time

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

Profesional environment and competitive.

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

Calgary office Was good but dealing with Montreal was not fun

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.

My delivery and productivity in the assigned objectives were successful and supported by management.

In my mind, I accomplished a uniformity of the project quality level and good closure of projects, the level of client satisfaction clients and the internal protocol or method of implementing the quality management system.

Largest Canadian Engineering Company.

The project team was hand picked by the client. Atmosphere was not very good because of conflicting standards between client and engineering company, leading to major conflict.

Pros

Great and knowledgeable client

Poor Project management
