    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.
