    I worked at SNC-Lavalin OM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Big Company with large capital projects

    Cons

    US Operations are dictated by Canada ops that have no idea about US Market. Lots of favoritism for management in Canada , and playing unethical games with employees in USA who had many years of productive service. CYA management style with lots of turnover as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Management in Canada Operations acted in an unethical manner. Is not truthful to its employees.

  5. "Property Management"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Career Opportunities

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON

    I worked at SNC-Lavalin OM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many nice people work there. Genuine desire existed to make their processes more efficient and improve the bottom line.

    Cons

    Too much nepotism. Some management were in roles they were not qualified for because they had friends in high places. Very frustrating for well qualified employees who did not have that inside track. Also HR had no backbone, they were mere puppets at SNC and didn't do much to address high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Not much, now that the property management business has been sold to Brookfield.
