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.

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

Worked for the company directly as a contractor for 6 months

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

Interesting exposure to various projects, but lack of internal growth path

Very corporate culture in the company. There feels to be a detachment from the executives to the employees. Although there are big and interesting projects, but work has strong silo tendency between department and lack of collaboration.

Yellowknife Office

The Yellowknife office was a great place to work. The entire staff was friendly and worked great together as a team. The work load was hard at times with deadlines that required extra hours but everyone pulled together.

Ce n'est plus ce que c'était

Mon expérience personnelle chez SNC, en tant que dessinateur, se résument en ces quelques phrases: - Aucune ambiance de de travail (c'est chacun pour soi, il n'y a aucune union); - La mentalité des cadres se résument a "On paye un junior, mais on lui exigent le rendement et la productivité d'un sénior. Et s'il fait pas l'affaire, ont a juste a le renvoyer avant la fin de sas probation, pas p,us grave que ça ". - Aucune formation, mis a part celles sur la sécurité (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, très bonne couvertures. Peut-être que la mentalité diffèrent dans d'autre département, voir même d’autre bureaux (Je travaillait au siège social, le 455 René-Lésveque), mais je ne gardes pas vraiment de bon souvenir de la-bas... Je ne dis pas d'éviter a tout prix cette compagnie, peut-être que d'autre y trouveront leur bonheur, mais je vous dit plutôt "a vos risque et périls"...

Pros

Bonnes assurances

Cons

Tout le reste
