    I have been working at SNC-Lavalin

    Pros

    Large company, large projects, great if you are building up experience. Good if your are an engineer. Many divisions to work in.

    Cons

    Lack of support and help and development for non-engineers. A lot of restructuring. There are too many differences between the divisions and groups. Not any easy ways to move between groups.

    Advice to Management

    Standardize everything and level the playing field for all employees. Dismantle the divisions between groups. Open opportunities for easy movement between groups.

          I have been working at SNC-Lavalin full-time for less than a year

          Pros

          If you are good at politics you will succeed.

          Cons

          Top down approach. No interaction between management and EIT/Juniors. They are one of the largest employers in Canada but fail to make Canada's top 100 employers. There's a reason why management is always in the news. Coincidently they are all friends. To succeed in this corrupt company you have to fit in with the management crew or do exactly what they tell you. They laugh about ethics and the WE CARE policies. They...

          Cons

          Though SNC-Lavalin does take social initiatives and promotes them vociferously, the participation in these initiatives (and its impact most certainly) is somehow centralized in and around Canada. SNC-Lavalin does need to take serious steps to put in an effective training system for their employees.
