    I have been working at Stantec full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I have been with Stantec for about five years at two locations. The people are genuinely good people here, and hard workers are recognized and rewarded for the most part. It is an integrated approach to design, so architects, designers, and engineers would side by side. No one works crazy hours on a regular basis like some other firms and there is very limited drama. We have regular office happy hours and events, and Stantec supports organizations and events that employees want to be a part of. It is also easy to transfer between office locations and specialties because of the size of the firm.

    Cons

    It is such a large firm that sometimes you feel out of the loop on current events and your issues can get drowned out unless you speak up.

    Advice to Management

    To keep long term employees, those who are loyal, making a positive contribution, and hard working should be rewarded appropriately through salary increases, bonuses, and/or recognition.
