No room for promotion
Staff Accountant (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXJuly 22, 2019
My experience had no room for advancement in the field, when asked for guidance and new challenges, I was thrown road block assignments to keep me busy that were not even related to my field of experience.

Fair place
Senior Electrical Engineer (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ONJuly 10, 2019
Good benefit plan, good team work environment, but it is slowing down as not able to get projects.
I guess that the overhead cost is high than other companies and make it less competitive in the engineering market.

SNC Lavalin compensates their employees very well, The downside to working for SNC was the constant turnover in staff due to long work hours, an unbalanced workload and minimal employee recognition initiatives.

Very corporate and non trustworthy management
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BCJune 17, 2019
The employees are always an after thought in any decision that is made at the corporate office in Montreal. False promises on promotions and wage increases are frequent and decisions by management are questionable at best. Any job that is bid on is done so at the lowest possible cost just to win the job. IF (big IF) the bid is successful they will then hope to not lose money.
Pros
Flexible hours
Cons
