Pros

Interoffice communication is pretty good at Stantec. They have a good (visual) business model and support this conceptually. There is good web-based technology to link offices and keep marketing, project team formation and financial information flowing.

Cons

The firm is not a progressive firm and is heavily top-down with little bottom-up information flow, though that is part of the official party line. This firm is managed quarterly, i.e. for short-term profits, like every other publicly traded firm. Sustainability is mentioned on their webpage, but it's not part of the corporate culture, rather an add-on.

Advice to Management

Please consider deepening the sustainability culture and also adding lean thinking for design team integration. This is a major innovation that other large firms are making happen (CH2MHill) and even small firms are nimbly making this a major part of their culture to great advantage.

    Pros

    Strong diversity of talented individuals. Good benefits including reduced health care costs for making healthy choices. Good stock ownership plan. Strong technology investment by corporation.

    Cons

    Staff at times want to hear the vision from senior managers with positive results that have impacted our staff locally. Staff are not allowed to have trash cans in their office. Recycling bins are everywhere though...
