    Current Employee - Senior Structural Engineer in Houston, TX

    I have been working at SNC-Lavalin for more than a year

    Pros

    SNC Lavalin is a large firm but seems nimble enough to recognize changes in the marketplace and is not afraid to invest and capitalize on emerging opportunities. - I get to work on big, interesting projects, many times using cutting edge or emerging technologies. - Worldwide name recognition. - Many colleagues are leaders in their respective fields.

    Cons

    you finished the project in the morning, you are layed off in the afternoon.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at SNC-Lavalin full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company has a good outlook and idea, but lacks significant exposure in the oil and gas industry as an EPC. Treats employees well and engineering is well structured for growth.

    Cons

    Lack of exposure to the EPC industry in oil and gas. Bidding against other EPC giants is quite difficult to undercut them and engineering abilities are limited. The company has a great outlook but it is sure to be long term (10+ years) before there's ability to compete against CB&I, KBR, Jacobs etc

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward and avoid high turnover of employees. Invest in the young engineers to carry the company forward.
