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

Salary and benefits

Cons

Security

Contract Employment

Employment is typically contract, so when the contract ends your position might end too. The company has a good training program and can be a fun place to work. You could however end up on a team with difficult management. If you end up on a team like that don’t expect to get anywhere, that type of team environment is strictly who you know not what you know. Not all teams are that way, but many are. This industry is project based so you could wind up unemployed once projects are completed.

Pros

Paid education, decent benefits.

Cons

Could have long hours. Project is done so are you. Some horrific management.

They take advantage

They kept me on contract for two years without having to pay me above min. Wage even though I was promoted. The last year I was there, it was every three months a renewed contract and then it went to 1 month at a time until they sold our division to Brookfield.

Mauvais timing

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

Good at putting out fires.

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.

Great Company to work for

Excellent management, team work, the company actually cares about it’s employees and shows it and practices it. The benefits were excellent with a stock option for employees. One of the best jobs I ever had.

Its ok

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.

Calgary office Was good but dealing with Montreal was not fun

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.

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

An organization in need of major change

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
