    Negative Outlook

    I worked at SNC-Lavalin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Diverse project portfolio from continuing services to mega projects.

    Cons

    Strained work environment. Departments & divisions simply unwilling to work with one another effectively. Middle Managers unable or unwilling to effect change. Promotion from within simply unavailable. Lack of focus on long term clients and key business relationships that help build the company over the decades.

    Advice to Management

    Need to review Exit Interviews of the top performers who have departed to understand the underlying reasons of their departure. The independent silo mentality must be removed in order to promote effective cooperation between departments & divisions.
