    I have been working at Stantec full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Easy access to the office via local roadways. Plenty of space in refrigerator due to fewer employees. Flexible work hours due to lack of work. Plenty of parking. Lots of office space - four cubicles per person now.

    Cons

    A culture of greed and dishonesty. Proposals show staff and resources that ultimately will not be used on projects. Time spent on overbudget projects is charged against other projects and clients to maintain chargeability and utilization. Profit is the overriding priority over good engineering practices and due diligence. Our best engineers and marketers have left or been let go. No local support - no human resources, no marketing help, no IT help. Little or no training and support. Poor communication in office and between offices. Little or no cooperation due to interdepartmental rivalries and suspicion. No work sharing, total compartmentilization of projects. Little trust between departments and employees. I would leave if I could find another job elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Seems pointless to advise local, regional or corporate on anything. They are distant, impersonal and focused on chargeability, utilization and profit margins. Morale is very poor but every month the same empty message from leadership.

    I have been working at Stantec full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The employees are nice and friendly. The office is in a good location.

    Cons

    Management is slow to change. Most managers in the Irvine office has been there for years and needs some management training so employee morale increases. Growth and opportunities is not valued. Company is top heavy. A lot of managers for a few production people.
