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

Pros

Good learning experience right out of college. Friendly office experience.

Cons

Not competitive salary-wise, at least at the bottom. Poor annual review process. No raises or even cost of living raises. Forced employees to use their vacation days the week after Christmas for 2 years in a row.

Advice to Management

Give US branches more holidays to be comparable to what the Canada branches get.

    Pros

    Not a positive thing to say !!!!

    Cons

    Management is driven by profits only. They will totally disrepect you if you are not producing the numbers that they expect. The only way to advance seems to be by working 60+ hours and getting paid for 40 and not making any issues. People who complain are systematically replaced.

    Advice to Management

    everything that goes around, comes around.

    I worked at Stantec full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They don't lay anyone off when the acquisition takes place, and will compensate for current benefits they don't offer with an equitable pay raise.

    Cons

    After about a year, which is just about enough time for them to completely destroy whatever culture your firm used to have, the layoffs start. After inflicting severe morale deflation to your office environment, the layoffs just intensify. In the case of my firm, Stantec turned a once thriving, professional family-type atmosphere where you mattered as a person to upper management into a cold, depressing, stressful, impersonal workplace where you're just an employee ID number generating profit for stockholders. Loyal long-time employees will find themselves suddenly subject to the whims of impersonal bean counters thousands of miles away, possibly in a foreign country.
