    I worked at Stantec part-time

    Pros

    There are some really great people who work here, with the best intentions for building a diverse community and building an excellent portfolio.

    Cons

    Management is constantly in flux and is never sure to remain stable, leading to a complete breakdown of accurate information, ladders to leadership, and collaboration across senior levels. The Stantec model is to buy up high performing firms and integrate them into the Stantec community but they provide no tools or benefits of being a part of a megalith company. Our benefits became less comprehensive under Stantec, as well as less family and woman friendly. The sense of community the former firm had will be broken down and re-assimalated into "Stantec" while also diluting the effectiveness of its leadership and community. Upper management frequently gets propelled into the amorphous, mutable ether of Stantec upper leadership while the rest get stagnated in deeper layers of bureaucracy. They talk a lot about values but rarely do those values become enacted into anything greater than public mantra.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more women leaders and foster greater collaboration and transparency between the hierarchy. The leadership that exists is predominantly male with very few clear opportunities for education and career growth. Everything is about what you can do for the company and very rarely about what the company can do for you.

    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.
