Worked for the company directly as a contractor for 6 months

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Upper management was very supportive in the beginning, then new reporting manager was the opposite. Work culture got toxic, and didn't feel like I fit anymore.

Pros

In the downtown core

Cons

Poor management, no direction on what tasks and responsibilities were

Découragée par les restructurations

c'est ma 2ème mise à pied, à chaque fois ils recrutent des employés pour but de restructurer et sois disant améliorer la situation, c'est les mises à pieds qui commencent. Les gens compétents pas compétents dehors.Puis voici le changement apporté! nous avons fait le ménage...

Pros

Apprentissage en milieu de travail

Cons

Réorganisation pour un oui ou pour un non

Google it. Nothing positive show up

Watch out the bullies out there! SNC can not be profitable without dirty money in the mix. Lack of skills, vision and also leadership. Toxic politics rule this firm. Management has no vision and is short term oriented. No former SNC exec has shine elsewhere following their tenure at SNC. We never hear from them ever. They all go back home and watch Netflix. Pure lack of talented professionals...Everyone trying to save their jobs. Second guessing, politics, unproductive noisy meetings.They need a major cleaning from top to bottom. It is very inefficient and shocking. I felt in the 1970s when I first walk into the firm. Very low skilled over paid professionals playground.

Pros

Location

Cons

Archaic. Incompetent. Bankrupt

Lots of politics

It's all about profit and nothing more. There's 0 investment in employee programs or benefit. The management is constantly fighting each other impending you to do your basic job. There's big lack of leadership skills within senior management and excecs. I've seen discrimination against minorities and women at headquarters and project office levels. Avoid this company!

Pros

Fair group plans and work/life balance

Cons

Mauvais timing

Je crois que l'entreprise perd de son lustre. Elle utilise maintenant les m√™mes tactiques qu'ailleurs soit des promesses vides pour en obtenir plus de la part des juniors. Salaire √† l'embauche int√©ressant mais les augmentations sont moindres que l'augmentation du co√Ľt de la vie... passe.

Pros

Conciliation travail famille

Cons

Peu ou pas de support

Large and slow

It is a large company which means it is slow to change. They bought another company a few years back and that company do what they want and doesn't really follow corporate guidelines.

Ce n'est plus ce que c'était

Mon exp√©rience personnelle chez SNC, en tant que dessinateur, se r√©sument en ces quelques phrases: - Aucune ambiance de de travail (c'est chacun pour soi, il n'y a aucune union); - La mentalit√© des cadres se r√©sument a "On paye un junior, mais on lui exigent le rendement et la productivit√© d'un s√©nior. Et s'il fait pas l'affaire, ont a juste a le renvoyer avant la fin de sas probation, pas p,us grave que √ßa ". - Aucune formation, mis a part celles sur la s√©curit√© (Ils mettent beaucoup d'emphase la-dessus); - Tu enchaines les projets back to back, sans avoir ne serait-ce que 5 min entre 2 projets pour faire autre chose; - Les assurances, par-contre, rien a redire la-dessus, tr√®s bonne couvertures. Peut-√™tre que la mentalit√© diff√®rent dans d'autre d√©partement, voir m√™me d‚Äôautre bureaux (Je travaillait au si√®ge social, le 455 Ren√©-L√©sveque), mais je ne gardes pas vraiment de bon souvenir de la-bas... Je ne dis pas d'√©viter a tout prix cette compagnie, peut-√™tre que d'autre y trouveront leur bonheur, mais je vous dit plut√īt "a vos risque et p√©rils"...

Pros

Bonnes assurances

Cons

Tout le reste
