    Suffers from big company beaurocracy, but makes up for it

    Pros

    I feel fairly compensated (pay and benefits) without having to ask for it. Company is proactive about retaining employees. Large-scale engineering projects outside of the reach of smaller firms are available here. So many possible career paths, perfect for someone who wants to "shop around." Very flexible for those looking to work remotely part- or full-time. Management gives employees freedom to carve their own career paths.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape if you have to go to senior management for anything. Can feel isolating and impersonal when working in teams scattered across the continent and beyond. Very scattershot in terms of mentoring and support, depends on how lucky you get with the quality of local leadership and office culture. Broader company culture feels very off-the-shelf, top-down, predictably corporate America, but with lots of exceptions at the local level. Can emphasize safety and DEI to the point of being overbearing, making all but the most safety-minded and DEI-sympathetic people annoyed at times.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, as well as flexibility for working remote.

    Cons

    Painful integration process. None of Stantec's systems related to employment or financial tracking is user friendly. Every process is multi-step with loads of redundancy. Seeing quite a few "retirement" announcements for upper Cardno management (read into that what you will).
