I worked at SNC-Lavalin full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Many opportunities to work on different kinds of engineering projects in US and overseas. Good co-workers.

Cons

Conflict prone management on big projects. Micro-management by managers to control contact with clients which inevitably led to incorrect relay of information and delays in project completion. Management always reluctant to train entry-level engineers. Too much finger pointing when things went wrong.

Advice to Management

Please offer training for employees to keep their skills updated. Do more employee reviews instead of one annual evaluation.
