I have been working at SNC-Lavalin full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

large company with a start-up atmosphere and culture - high responsibility and trust - horizontal structure - great for employees at various levels

Cons

large company - many divisions working on similar aspects without perfect intercompany coordination - systems in place but sometimes not available or not up to date - corporate now focused on addressing the issues

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere, treat people like grown ups, and like professionals.

    Cons

    Too many culls, company is run by IT and HR who need to realize that they are SUPPORT services to the business and construction activities, too many competing entities within the company for the same work, and inflexibility to complete with outside consultants for the same works.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - work should be directed internally, rather than given to the outside consultants where possible, to maximize profitability to shareholders.
    - Housecleaning and reorganization is in order. Hopefully the new CEO takes care of this....eventually.

    Pros

    Good resources (library) and benefits

    Cons

    Body shopping, unpersonal, non-professional. My mandate as consultant was to charge as much as possible to the customer, no matter the work was useful or not. Fired when mandate was completed, no new mandate was offered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Business ethic must be improved. Befriending with Muammar Gaddafi is one thing, treating customers and employees as cash cows is an other thing. No surprise the company is involved in bribery and money laundrying scandals.
