Management doesn't know a lot about their business but doing the best they can. Fair salary and benefits. Good work life balance. Left alone for the most part which is good if you know what you're doing.

Je crois que l'entreprise perd de son lustre. Elle utilise maintenant les mêmes tactiques qu'ailleurs soit des promesses vides pour en obtenir plus de la part des juniors. Salaire à l'embauche intéressant mais les augmentations sont moindres que l'augmentation du coût de la vie... passe.
Pros
Conciliation travail famille
Cons
Peu ou pas de support

Not great but good enough.

The people worth keeping ate let go.


There is a sense that a high turnover rate is healthy and good for the company.


Dont realize that high turnover rates cost more in the short and long run, as it is costly to train new employees.

There was a great deal of competent experienced people working at SNC Calgary office. Montreal was difficult to deal with and had many incompetent people in Management positions that were ill suited for their roles. This created many stresses and wasted time with meetings. Benefit package was good, Salary was good.

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

What can i say, they are focused on the bottom line and maximizing shareholder value. Too bad its all gone bad. Great people working for a company whose management is incentivized in all the wrong ways and it shows.
Pros
Good salary and benefits
Cons
Short term focus, office politics, too much turnover in management

Good benefit plan, good team work environment, but it is slowing down as not able to get projects.
I guess that the overhead cost is high than other companies and make it less competitive in the engineering market.

A typical day was very high energy. I learned a lot because the employer believed in upgrading education according to the position. The hardest part of the job was the travel time to the job. The most enjoyable was the data entry I was able to help with providing stats .
Pros
Steady Increases
Cons
Long Hours

The employees are always an after thought in any decision that is made at the corporate office in Montreal. False promises on promotions and wage increases are frequent and decisions by management are questionable at best. Any job that is bid on is done so at the lowest possible cost just to win the job. IF (big IF) the bid is successful they will then hope to not lose money.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
Pay grade
