It is a decent company to work for. I don't mind being available 24/7 and I do like being busy with challenges on both a large and small scale. Seeing real change in the perception of how the company views our IT department is quite rewarding as well, though it may seem an uphill battle some of the time.
My days are filled with minor tickets through the remedy ticket system and at least 2 large projects on the go at any given time. The main challenge seems to be moving away from the old ways of things just working and moving to a documented process orientated environment. I am learning new products and ways of doing things all the time which is nice. Management is very accommodating for guidance and the atmosphere around my managers and co-workers is very relaxed.
The hardest part of the job seems to be finding time for everything as we replace an aging infrastructure (we are just completing our migration from xp to win 7) and knowing the unknown variables that arise. The importance of vendor management and escalation paths is a little new to me, I've worked closely with vendors to learn different products but this is more getting them to implement solutions and working out how these solutions will fit in the current and future environment. We learn by watching them implement instead of learning while working with them if you see the difference there.
I feel like we just need to get over this hump and then the job will become less fixing and more planning. Po
Points positifsEmpowering position and lots of responsibility - I am making change
Points négatifslots of responsibilty and I have no back up
I had the opportunity last summer to work at SNC-Lavalin as an engineering assistant. When I got there, there were several learning modules on the computers to help me learn more about the company, and projects that SNC was involved in. From this experience, I was able to learn how an engineering firm worked at the project management level. I created workflow diagrams and online modules for sections such as change management, lessons learned, and health and safety. I can definitely say that the engineering industry is very "procedural" based, as there are numerous types of workflows for documents in each department. The work environment itself was also amazing. All the employees were fantastic, there were interesting meetings going on every week for employees to apply and learn new things (such as ergonomics 101, help for creating a report, etc), health and safety meetings every week to keep us on our toes, and the office had ergonomic furniture and lighting too (very good for the eyes and back). The hardest part I'd have to say is adjusting to it at the very beginning. I never had a chance to work at an office and was piled with lots of work from time to time. Skills that I have transferred into my portfolio would be communication, time management, organization, problem solving and leadership skills.
Points positifsWeekly health and safety meetings, lunch and learn meetings, free coffee and juice, ergonomic work environment
Points négatifsNone, only worked there for four months during the summer

A typical night at work ( I always worked the night shift) was preparing and making sandwiches for 1600 to 2900 people.It consisted of a lot of work but I enjoyed my job.I had to use up what I could from dinner leftovers for sandwiches, wraps , pizzas etc plus making the regular sandwiches. (ham/cheese, p. butter etc)
I also made up trays of sandwiches for functions and meetings.
I learned that everyone has strengths but are different so I would put each person where they were strongest suited. I learned not only to to listen but to hear. I learned how to give constructive criticism
I didn't really have too much to do with management. I enjoyed my co workers except for the ones who didn't work as hard as everyone else. I believe in fairness. The hardest part of my job was seeing certain people abuse work in other areas...reported them but nothing was done about it at the time. That was frustrating. I loved being in camp and I was good at my job. I love working with people and I love being part of a team where the work is distributed evenly and each doing their share. That's what I did when i was lead.
The most enjoyable part of my job was feeling valued for the hard work that I did.
Points positifsmy own private room, free internet, free meals.free lodging, free transportation to and from Ft McMurray. I could save money and pay off debts.
Points négatifsmissing familybut having internet was awesome so I could skype everyday and that made it easier.

My work is Completed
Good management but salary doesn't match with the high living expenses.
There are many kind people working in the group, and I am appreciated working with them. I learned to embrace everyone's opinion and try not to discourage their effort. Managers are very kind-hearted people, they will listen to employee's development needs. There are many coworkers that are very helpful when I ask questions. And when they encountered difficulties, I always help them back. The hardest part of the job will be maintaining my life quality with the salary that I got, I can barely pay my bills, the supervisor mentions that they cannot control how much employee got, only HR can decide how much employee can get. HR doesn't understand how difficult the employee's low pay affecting their live quality, and they will always cut down the increase of salary. No matter how much effort the employee is putting towards company's development. The most enjoyable part of the job are I can help with other coworkers to solve their technical problem and they appreciated my help. Also I am able to learn new drafting technique with company approved program.
Points positifsLearning Opportunities, good managers, very friendly people
Points négatifsLow pay that doesn't match with high living expenses

The construction industry has been broken at a fundamental level for quite some time now, so no one should be looking to spend a single second being stuck in this career path. Sometimes you may have to take time off because there will be nothing to do, other times you'll be swamped for months on end. Extremely poor work/life balance with barely any rewarding pay. The work itself is also uninteresting with barely any intellectual challenging aspects.
As for the company itself, SNC-Lavalin is one of the worst ones. It has rightfully earned its poor reputation and whole at a face level they seem to care about their employees somewhat, you can be assured they are as soulless and evil as every other large corporation out there. The head offices will meddle with the affairs with smaller offices (such as laying off people without understanding the intricacies of the office where these people worked in), will not handle "human resource" manners properly, and just is all around a cold, heartless place to work in. That's corporate "culture" for you I suppose.
tl;dr - STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS
