    Pros

    Overall compensation package is competitive. SNC provides a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Senior management does not understand its people. Montreal headquarters imposing unrealistic structure to satellite offices.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people; they see a lot from the front lines than management does. Stop treating them like numbers. As this continues, employees will leave. Undermining from management has lead to burn-out of employees and their inevitable departure.
