    I worked at Stantec for less than a year

    Pros

    -The ability to work on more than one project. -Very friendly and welcoming atmosphere. -Everyone is eager and willing to help interns learn. -Although CAD and MicroStation are used extensively, it is not a required skill to have before starting at Stantec in the NYC office as you learn while you work on projects. -Received a walkthrough of how my work directly affected the project and its importance. -Relatively young staff making communication easier. -Decent work hours. -Meetings with supervisors/"buddies" to talk about my progress. -Highly valued safety, ethics, and concerns of staff members.

    Cons

    -Did not get to participate with any meetings with the clients (mostly done through phone calls). -Only one microwave on the floor so heating up food took a while some times.

    I have been working at Stantec full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Decent salary and benefits, good culture overall depending on office and manager. You can work on anything from small projects to mega projects and many recognizable, challenging, interesting projects.

    Cons

    Promotion structure undefined for junior and intermediate level employees. Sometimes Feels like several companies under one roof instead of a single company. Business units often don’t communicate or share resources.

    I have been working at Stantec full-time

    Pros

    Amazing group of people with a family atmosphere. You get to design your own career path and have the opportunity to work on jobs and in places that you would not get with smaller firms. You get the benefit and resources of a massive company with a small company feel.

    Cons

    I don't have any cons.

    I have been working at Stantec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A company that has the ability to do just about anything, get a few extra holidays vs the average company, nice stock purchase match plan.

    Cons

    Lower than average pay, make a lot of decisions based on stockholders and not employees, feel like a number at times, safety moments every meeting begins to be repetitive, wellness plan for lower health premiums changes all the time, difficult at times to work with other offices. With being publicly traded, nearly every dicision is made with stockholders in mind.
