I have been working at Stantec full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The people: Stantec does their very best to keep good people and to promote a healthy and happy work environment. They also have a great working model of "local" offices to serve loval clients. Those offices are often full of people who work together and are also good friends. Coming to work with people you like makes any job way moe awesome!

Also - refer to my comments on cons below where I mention the public company aspect. One other major benefit to working here is that anyone can wmove up and be someone important at the firm. That's because you don't have to "buy in" for part ownership like in a partnership agreement. You can just be good at your job and move up and be recognized.

Cons

It's a public company so the needs of the shareholders really matter. That said, in a privaet company the bank accounts of the partners also matter so maybe it isn't a "con". At least a public company is fair and regulated and you know for sure that the leadership team (which is awesome, by the way) is following a defined set of rules.

Advice to Management

Keep paying attention to the younger generation. They have the enthousiasm to work hard towards our common goals and have a fresh approach to things. Don't get caught up in the stoggy old mens club of yesteryear, the same club that a lot of your competetors struggle with. The old guys are useful and great and have done a lot, but they won't be around forever and if you don't use them to mentor the younger team, you'll fall behind. The company mostly recognizes this and it hasn't gone unnoticed. Also, keep up the consistancy that you have become known for.

    I have been working at Stantec full-time

    Pros

    Lots of different projects to work on and many things to learn from knowledgeable senior staff. Nice looking offices and very friendly co-workers with very flexible hours.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than peers in the same field and below average benefits. Feel a little under appreciated for my work with lack of true leadership and guidance.
