I worked at Stantec full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Pay is at or above average for the engineering industry. They have good benefits and an employee stock ownership program. The company will provide you the opportunity to work on large engineering projects.

Cons

Your career may stagnate. In all fairness, this is probably more a result of the economy rather than the company. However, organic growth instead of the current practice of acquiring companies could be used to develop geographical regions. This might provide internal talent with an opportunity to develop their career and move up in the organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Day to day profit center and office management is good. At the corporate level, pursue organic growth and use internal talent to develop that growth.

    Pros

    Nice work environment. The employees are down to earth and very easy to get along with. It's easy to move up the chains and they pay for your career advancements.

    Cons

    Not much diversity in the workplace. There's isnt much of a team spirit either, seems like it's every man for himself most of the time.

    I have been working at Stantec

    Pros

    1. A handful of smart, hardworking, junior-level staff that work dilligently despite being severely underpaid with little to no chance of growth and development. 2. The architecture department.

    Cons

    If you love being discouraged from working hard and being reprimanded and punished for going above and beyond, then this is the perfect place for you. Otherwise, stay away! If you are ambitious, intelligent, and hardworking, this is seen as a threat to the completely incompetent management, and you will be forced out whether by choice or not. The lack of professionalism in this office is unbelievable for a company of this size. Do not expect your voice to be heard here; do not expect anyone to value hard work and intellect. This place is an utter disgrace compared to the rest of the local consulting community. The other reviews for this office are spot on; listen to the numbers!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about what is best for the future of the organization and not just the current state. If you want the company to succeed, you need to invest in the future and stop worrying about your oversized paycheck. Most importantly, put others above yourself since all the people below you are keeping the place afloat.
