    I have been working at Stantec full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    People are friendly and hard working. They are left to their own devices to make things work.

    Cons

    Upper Management watches from the sidelines hoping things happen. Their vision is limited to their office, never venturing much further. They are all paid well and do not want to upset the apple cart.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get with the times and understand your business model. Just because it is on paper doesn't mean that it will suddenly appear. Follow through is everything

    Pros

    The people: Stantec does their very best to keep good people and to promote a healthy and happy work environment. They also have a great working model of "local" offices to serve loval clients. Those offices are often full of people who work together and are also good friends. Coming to work with people you like makes any job way moe awesome!

    Also - refer to my comments on cons below where I mention the public company aspect. One other major benefit to working here is that anyone can wmove up and be someone important at the firm. That's because you don't have to "buy in" for part ownership like in a partnership agreement. You can just be good at your job and move up and be recognized.

    Cons

    It's a public company so the needs of the shareholders really matter. That said, in a privaet company the bank accounts of the partners also matter so maybe it isn't a "con". At least a public company is fair and regulated and you know for sure that the leadership team (which is awesome, by the way) is following a defined set of rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep paying attention to the younger generation. They have the enthousiasm to work hard towards our common goals and have a fresh approach to things. Don't get caught up in the stoggy old mens club of yesteryear, the same club that a lot of your competetors struggle with. The old guys are useful and great and have done a lot, but they won't be around forever and if you don't use them to mentor the younger team, you'll fall behind. The company mostly recognizes this and it hasn't gone unnoticed. Also, keep up the consistancy that you have become known for.
