Chaotic hour changes and poor management
Vessel Welder (Former Employee) –  Sealy, TXMay 13, 2019
Would never recommend anybody to work here. Unless you are okay with not being able to make any plans outside of work. No care for any personal issues. Too political to advance. Management throws employees under the bus too often.
Pros
No pros.
Cons
Short breaks. Short lunch. Poor management. All politics.

SNC alone might be ok, but partnered with JV Driver it’s a nightmare.
Inspector (Current Employee) –  Alvin, TXMay 9, 2019
Everything on the Chocolate Bayou Joint Venture will get you fired. Your job is threatened daily. The management is under- qualified and there is no job security. The E & I Supervisors from SNC are the only ones actually pulling their weight and getting anything accomplished. Unfortunately the management is JV Driver.
Pros
Pay scale is decent
Cons
Poor management

HR Officer (Current Employee) –  Abu DhabiMay 9, 2019
There is a lot of preaching however very less is being practiced. This is a Management style company and have no value for their employees for their efforts. Highly politicized practices and immature decisions will lead to the downfall of this organization.

Good company currently going through bad patch for several reasons. The CEO and his office donot have insight into day to day reality. "Old school boy" culture prevails.

Designing for the future is about more than predicting what it looks like. It’s about having the know-how and the expertise to turn predictions into projects that deliver results and meet ever-changing needs. That’s what we do every day: for our clients, for their customers and for the sustainable future of our business and the world we operate in.

We are SNC-Lavalin, and we are experts at mastering complexity.

Not a family oriented company
Human Resources Analyst (Former Employee) –  Sealy, TXApril 19, 2019
This company is all about how much money you can make them. Management does not take kindly to you being able work do your job without having to come to them. They are power hungry and those on top don’t want to see any one else make it.

HVAC Technician (Current Employee) –  Fort McMurray, ABApril 18, 2019
Horrible management, poor benefits 14/14 was the only thing keeping me with them. Management was poorly educated and had no clue but tried to walk all over you. They only got to where they were by kissing butt.
Pros
Free room, 14/14 rotation
Cons
Management and hourly pay/benefits.

Gained excellent experience working with SNC-Lavalin
Qatar Kentz WLL. Member (Current Employee) –  Senior BuyerMarch 23, 2019
Every company has its own set of pros and cons, and so does my SNC-Lavalin too. The multi nationality office culture and technology is way too high and updated. Coming to the pays and hikes this company provides better as compared to most similar level companies. The best thing apart from work is the facilities provided to the employees are pretty helpful and more than anything it gives a very good balance work-life.

Excellent experience and challenging opportunities
Shared Services Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Parksville, BCMarch 20, 2019
A wide variety of opportunities can be presented to employees that are willing to stretch and apply themselves. The vast majority of the co-workers and colleagues that you will work with are highly experienced and willing to share that knowledge to make the 'team' successful.

Decent workplace with flexible hours
Accountant (Current Employee) –  Etobicoke, ONMarch 19, 2019
Pros: Good place to work overall. Managers tend to be a bit laid back which is good in terms of the work environment. Flexible hours at least in my department.

Cons: Lack of true leadership... Senior management not all but some are not engaged with the average worker. Lack of direction and decision making of some management leads to a trickle down effect of issues that affect the average employee. People promoted to managers based on technical ability and not management ability.... This is key as it leads to what i mentioned with a lack of leadership
