    I have been working at SNC-Lavalin full-time

    Pros

    SNC is great, has great culture and work life balance. The team is very helpful and very knowledgeable, they make you feel like part of the family. There are various things the company does to get everyone involved which is great.

    Cons

    As with any epc company your time is up whenever there is no billable projects. Its very unfortunate.

    Advice to Management

    Frequent reviews of employees from their leads would be great. There are some hidden gem employees that shine greatly than others but are not given the chance or opportunity to grow. Very unfortunate for the skilled employee who has to train and teach others while not being offered a permanent position.
