    I worked at Stantec for more than 8 years

    Pros

    There are no pros to working here.

    Cons

    One of the worst company cultures in my 20+ year career history. If you are a 'yes' person who has no opinion and does what you are told, sits at your desk and speaks to no one all day, you might be fine. HR is full of bullies, men and women alike. They get rid of anyone who appears to be a threat to upper management, because they are inferior bullies who can't have any competition making them look bad. Leadership does not exist there, only bad management. And if you speak up and defend yourself, you are systematically harassed until you leave. There is no training and development plan, unless you fight and beg for it. If you're liked by your boss, they may pay for a class or two. The company's stated strategy is to be mediocre at best in pay and benefits. 2017 benefits are being slashed to the point of being so non-competitive and extremely expensive its not worth it. You can do better, anywhere.

    I have been working at Stantec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Personally like the way Stantec brands itself; fair compensation package; generally strong office culture and morale; encouragement for professional growth through company/external programs; flexible work schedules and office locations. For non-marketing staff, it seems like a great place to work and grow.

    Cons

    As marketing, working with practitioners can be difficult, varying across business lines. It can feel like we (marketers) are not empowered or valued at times and are more admin staff than content contributors. Not entirely sure of what the career trajectory is, or how to evolve from the role. Someone referenced many corporate layers, and I agree with that- everything seems to come "down the chain" and the management structure is pretty unclear.

    Advice to Management

    Clearly define a career path and promotion structure, especially for people starting their marketing career in this industry. Encourage the prioritization of Marketing/BD efforts to technical staff.
