    I have been working at Stantec full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company appears to have a reasonable backbone for success and seems to have the tools for employee satisfaction. Internal resources and technical expertise throughout the company provide a wealth of resources to serve clients. Employee benefits (outside of salary) seem a bit above the other firms in the region.

    Cons

    The entire business model is based on acquisitions. Find a firm with a 20+% profit margin; acquire the company; raise billable rates 20%; and hope that after a year you retain a few of the top players so you can make a 5% profit after you have taken care of the abundance of overhead (accountants, lawyers, policy makers, etc).
    The point: When a company rapidly expands, it has trouble with it's identity. Each acquired firm had their own formula for success. Changing that formula on a local level is slow and sometimes appears almost nonexistent. Acquisitions should be balanced with organic growth. For more information, review the company size five years ago, ten years ago. This company needs more than a feel-good policy written by a suit in a vacuum.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to grow the firm 10-20% each year with acquisitions, do a better job of facilitating them. Review turnover and employee retention. It is not the lower quality worker that leave. What does that mean you are left with?...
    Find a way to decrease overhead.
    Weekly policy changes and "new and improved" initiatives are a distraction to the typical employee focused on project implementation. It would be far more beneficial to focus on simple, effective strategies and then implement said strategy. Likely, two major issues would be better addressed: message consistency to workers and diminished overhead need for writers of ever-changing policy.
