Unrewarding job

No recognition for doing your job, or doing something above and beyond. Company had silos, that were very hard to break into. Upper management could be unreasonable at various times.

Pros

Flexible hours

Cons

Non stop reporting when an incident occurs

Very stressful situation

Management was unprofessional and ignorant. Going to work was extremely stressful as you judged how you day was going to go depending on the greeting from the manager each morning. Most days the manager was nasty, negative, condesending and a micro manager who should never have been in the position of property manager. Property Manager interference with project management caused undue stress and anger from the staff involved. The most enjoyable part of the day was looking forward to going home to a peaceful setting.

Pros

Great benefits

Cons

Unprofessional Management

Turmoil

Undergone poorly managed change, compounded with an understanding that advancement only possible if allied with right people.Immediate managers have since been removed and I understand that the work environment, ethics and culture has improved significantly.

Exciting projects. Great team members.

I normally work from home on most assignments for SNC-Lavalin. They are a great team to work with. Always professional and available for any questions that I may have.I typically format and review documents that are part of a large project. This could entail spreadsheets, visio documents, and very large Word documents.The hardest part of the job is time difference - working with individuals at different ends of Canada. It is not too bad because we are only talking 3 hours the most, but at times it could be a waiting game for either of us. When we do connect, it is very productive.The most enjoyable part of my job is meeting (virtually only in many cases, as well as physically) the individuals that you work with. Also, working from home is a bonus.

Pros

working from home

Cons

time difference

Happy office environment with a lot of employees benefits (health and bonuses)

Busy office environment, work is stressful but still have time for fun; co-workers are so nice, caring and helpful during tight deadlines on report submission; management cares about the employees by conducting a yearly company summer outings or recreations. The hardest part of the job is claim preparation that needs focus or concentration to avoid mistakes on the accuracy of amounts and attaching proper back-ups; accurate coding of all business transactions and entering them to the general ledger; tracking of account balance differences and bank accounts reconciliation.
