Unfair job advancement

I worked at at SNC for 6 years and each year my responsibilities grew, but my salary was not matched to my workload. Others in the same business line as I were doing less and getting paid much more. The companies rational was that I wasn't a "trained" Admin Assistant, yet I was doing everything that was expected of one and my Supervisors were happy.Unfortunately, the feedback from my Supervisors was not considered in my advancement; only what the Lead Manager of the Admins.

Pros

Work life balance

Cons

Unfair rating system. You work for one supervisor, but your ranking as d development is determined by the Performance Manager, who was not at all professional.

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.

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

Great environment to work in but

But... it shouldn't have rules that allow friends to say negative comments to each other. But if your friend chooses a week later that he wants you off the job. All he has to do is complain and they will fire you. Do to there zero tolerance rules. The other person should be fired as well and or both be sent away with a warning. Considering they were in agreement to start the way they talk and only others can complain about what the two people say. Rules are rules and there toughest at scn. They don't match today's changes and acceptance we have today.

Pros

Free food. Rooms.

Cons

Find a place to live 10 days of every month.. suggesting vacation package

Great work experience

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

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

Club for management and middle managers

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.

Great company not run by great ppl

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

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
