Having to get to work and feel the sense of belonging there, is what i enjoy at work. Being interactive with your team mates and being able to make it easy to communicate and share work ideas

The environment is fast paced, you have to learn on your feet, meet deadlines and please clients. There is a lot of room for growth, the only thing holding the company back in SA is lack of professionalism and good work etiquette. Safety is the number one priority.

In the morning we start off with our tool box talks and everbody there is excited and have an input in the tool box talk. I remember when one of the team mates were conducting a toolbox talk he included jokes in it which makes it fun. I learned that working as a team can reduce the amount of work to be done and I also learned a few things working in a PLANT because I come from a Depot backround within Petrochemical. Workplace culture is fun and everyone that I know in SNC-Lavalin is just happy and bubbly considering hard work and being pro-active. I cannot really say that there is part of the job that is hard because I enjoy a challenge,that is what makes me enjoy what I do as Health, Safety and Environmetal Professional.

I would recommend SNC - Lavalin any time. I absolutely loved my job and is heart breaking to leave. Unfortunately Sasol stopped all for due to financial difficulties, and therefore i need to search new employment.

The work is always underquoted and underestimated and because of that it is always under pressure and that creates a bad environment and because of that, it is not really a good place to be.

I found SNC Lavalin to be a professional workplace to be in because most the employees (co-workers) was well educated and that made the everyday tasks easier because of streamline cooperation between individual draftsmen. The projects abroad were done to a high standard of engineering services. Unfortunately despite the fast growth of 500 engineering staff and due to poor planning, the company did not foresee the economic meltdown that arises and had to close their department in SA. Overall a good learning period.
Pros
Work outside SA offices
Cons
Not enough long term work in SA
