    I worked at SNC-Lavalin

    Pros

    Good benefits (health & life insurance, RRSP matching, stock purchase option); my immediate managers/supervisors were nice to work with (we still keep in touch); the senior engineers/designers were very knowledgeable and supportive; most co-workers were good people; gained good work experience as I got to go to clients sites.

    Cons

    Unfortunate I joined SNC right after the corruption scandal had been made public so that brought some challenges for the office, the major clients stopped awarding them projects and management was only able to gain minor, low budget projects which put an excessive pressure on leads and the people who were actually executing the work, it really was an extremely stressful time. I actually suffered a lower back injury due to stress which until this date I'm still suffering and have to deal with the pain from time to time. When I joined I was very surprised that they had no training in place (there was some introduction to the procedures) but no specific training for the department. Very little training available. Well, I have to say that the major Con is the fact that upper senior management ended up shutting down the branch where I was working, sadly most people there had worked for SNC for 10+, 20+, 30+ years. They let go a lot of experience and seasoned professionals (oh well, their loss).
