Amazing, supportful and talented people work here.

This company gave me my first job opportunity in Canada. I learnt so much from Management and my coworkers. I am a more confident and driven person because of my experience with this company. Truly grateful.

Decent workplace with flexible hours

Pros: Good place to work overall. Managers tend to be a bit laid back which is good in terms of the work environment. Flexible hours at least in my department. Cons: Lack of true leadership... Senior management not all but some are not engaged with the average worker. Lack of direction and decision making of some management leads to a trickle down effect of issues that affect the average employee. People promoted to managers based on technical ability and not management ability.... This is key as it leads to what i mentioned with a lack of leadership

A busy place of work

I worked for this great company on 2 deferent occasions. On both occasions, I so much enjoyed working with my colleagues, management and users. This company was acquired by BGIS in 2016, where I worked as a contractor for a year and half.

Always something to do

It is a decent company to work for. I don't mind being available 24/7 and I do like being busy with challenges on both a large and small scale. Seeing real change in the perception of how the company views our IT department is quite rewarding as well, though it may seem an uphill battle some of the time. My days are filled with minor tickets through the remedy ticket system and at least 2 large projects on the go at any given time. The main challenge seems to be moving away from the old ways of things just working and moving to a documented process orientated environment. I am learning new products and ways of doing things all the time which is nice. Management is very accommodating for guidance and the atmosphere around my managers and co-workers is very relaxed. The hardest part of the job seems to be finding time for everything as we replace an aging infrastructure (we are just completing our migration from xp to win 7) and knowing the unknown variables that arise. The importance of vendor management and escalation paths is a little new to me, I've worked closely with vendors to learn different products but this is more getting them to implement solutions and working out how these solutions will fit in the current and future environment. We learn by watching them implement instead of learning while working with them if you see the difference there. I feel like we just need to get over this hump and then the job will become less fixing and more planning. Possibly from good to great, we are almost there! I really enjoy that sense of accomplishment.

Pros

Empowering position and lots of responsibility - I am making change

Cons

lots of responsibilty and I have no back up

Not a bad place to work

Management is awful... some of the managers don't know how to separate their home and work life.

Pros

understandable when it comes to needing time off to deal with your family

Cons

If you are not a favorite - you will be at the bottom of the list.

Friendly good environment to work

I am able to come to work happy, I know exactly what I will be doing for the day, we all work as a team. I have learned a lot at SNC I feel it has made me Appreciate having a job and that even though sometimes it may be hectic, I know I can get it done. The management is understanding and willing to help. Our co-workers are fantastic they are always willing to help. The hardest part of the job is being the way things constantly change and there is no room to feel comfortable that I will have a job once a project ends or even when you are placed on a project it may get bought out. The most enjoyable part of the job is the core hours 9-4 you are able to start at 7,8,9 as long as you work your 9 hours.

Pros

People are great

Cons

The job is unpredictable with stability
