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

    Pros

    Always felt that i was an important resource and was well looked after with benefits & rewards with all entitlements being paid in full and on time

    i didn't really experience any cons while working for Kentz, however post acquisition the dynamic of the organisation changed significantly.

    Remember the staff moving forward, and always remember those you step on on the way up will see you on the way down - (Karma)

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good overall company to work for. Management supports and takes care of the employees. Good bonus structure.

    Cons

    Sometimes may be unorganized with a lack of procedures to follow. If you are not in the inner circle with the functional managers can be difficult for the employee.

    Advice to Management

    Setup proper procedures that can be followed globally. Do not show so much preferences when it comes to employees.

    I have been working at Kentz full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If anything, all the safety regulations get kind of annoying, but it's certainly better than no safety! Pay is good, bosses are generally good, hours are good.

    Cons

    Excessive safety regs, as stated above. Some uncertainty work wise between projects as well.

    Advice to Management

    Keep your employees in the loop as much as possible.

    Pros

    There is very little I can say in support of Kentz, once a strong company it is experiencing what can only be described as a decaying entity.

    Cons

    As SNC Lavalin takes over, the old boys who served for years in Kentz are being shuffled to lesser roles in preparation to the new management. It was clear to me that a couple of these "Old boys" were extremely disgruntled and made it clear that "they hoped SNC would fail". It was also clear to me that they were doing what they could to assist in that failure.

    Advice to Management

    To be successful in ones career, you must take to the end. Kentz had and still has a reputation of disregarding the value of people. SNC, you are a Canadian based company, Canada is a proud and honorable country that has a world wide reputation for being decent towards people, time to open your eyes in your newly acquired divisions and be mindful of the Kentz sabotages
