    I worked at Stantec

    Pros

    Excellent geographic opportunities as the company has many offices throughout the US and Canada. Much room for growth and generally great stability.

    Cons

    Sometimes an office may not follow the company "coporate" policies and that can end up hurting a person's career potential, but this is a common issue with a company that grows through acquisitions of other firms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow the employee room to grow, but also try and keep the focus on family.

    Canadian company, strong team, despite the size, feels like a small company with relatively close relationship with almost any level of management...

    Very competitive, hard to get in, not even sure what else to say

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make better decisions in the future (upper management, you know what I mean)
