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

    Pros

    The have established standards and procedures also a good company benefits.

    Cons

    The quality of the recently hired ( the last few years) are not up to required standard, the company needs to set up technical training for the new hired especially the engineers in training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management shall retain the long term employee and make use of their experience to train the new comers. When they hire senior personnels they shall do in depth checking on the person technically back ground (not just friends or family or people of their same nationality)
