      The management make some strange decisions, and doesn't always listen to their people. Starting out in new position with the company can be difficult, because not a lot of guidance is given.

      Oil and Gas Sector in Trouble

      Pros

      Good, small, tight-knit teams with a very flexible work environment. Everyone is friendly and benefits are good. Downtown location with tunnel access is very convenient.

      Cons

      Unable to stay competitive due to oil and gas sector being in a stagnation point. Clients are not spending money and SNC is having trouble staying competitive. Many internal integration issues with all of the acquisitions. Too many people with company history are quitting and leaving the younger engineers with no one to look up to or learn from.
