    I worked at SNC-Lavalin full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    IT Infrastructure and Practice and Procedures are the best I've experienced. Documents are will written and they even have documents with instructions to create documents.

    Cons

    IT has been outsourced (for the better). Previously, IT atmosphere was dismal and IT middle management was toxic, hiring and promoting friends and relatives to supervise senior IT Staff.

    Advice to Management

    Do not tolerate nepotism. Reward employees that work hard. Don't let managers take credit.

    Pros

    *Great work life balance
    *Senior management is helpful, friendly, but also very hard working.
    *I learned so much in the short time that I worked here
    *division is a little bit smaller so you get to work with all senior mangement

    *Culture is still pretty old school, they haven't really adopted the new style other companies have to try and attract the top millennials.

    Advice to Management

    *I think incentives need to be higher and benefits package should go above and beyond the norm of the industry to start attracting the top millennials.
