    "Good Company, but Must Work in the Field"

    I have been working at Stantec full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Have some amazing project managers that aim to educate younger employees You can somewhat easily transfer within the company, you just have to be your own advocate and talk to the managers about the transfer first, not HR Work on some of the largest water and waste water projects in the country Extremely team oriented in field offices

    Cons

    Benefits could always be better; especially retirement contributions and bonus structure Head quarters is very disconnected from the field work (which is what makes all of the money, but they have yet to realize that) Can have terrible project managers that stick around and get touted as excellent because they know someone at headquarters (but this can be true at all companies)

    Advice to Management

    Get better benefits, and realize your field office employees are your money makers (not yourselves) so treat and pay them better.

    Pros

    A lot of learning opportunity with onsite construction managers and superintendents. Able to assist in many different aspects of the construction project.

    Cons

    Long hours are required. Heavy workloads are expected on smaller projects due to poor staffing decisions.

    Advice to Management

    Plan staffing according to project size. Promote better work life balance for smaller job sites.
