    I worked at SNC-Lavalin full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Cannot think of any Pros for SNC Lavalin

    Cons

    Treat their staff with discontent. Very intimidating management team who do not value the knowledge of their staff. HR management and staff is a big problem in this company. A Canadian company with a bad reputation that tries to cover it up by saying they have ethics when they don't !

    Advice to Management

    No need to advise management as they don't listen and they don't care !
