      Throw politeness, humility and respect out the window and churn out numbers to stay relevant

      Pros

      Challenging work- good for a project portfolio.

      Cons

      You will work with machine-like humans who are frustrated with their job. No team culture. If you are new, you will always feel like you are new there. Diversity is a joke in some of the core teams even in a place like NYC. Your mental health doesn't matter here. Small overcrowded office- WFH was a relief.

      Pros

      Great people! Wonderful work life balance and the upper management is fantastic. Great company to work for They really try to listen and promote your career goals as well!

      Cons

      Amount of PTO is average. But as an office they do let you actually let you enjoy your vacation when you are on PTO. So that’s a plus! And you do get more holidays off then typical.

      Pros

      Stantec is highly ethical, well respected by competitors and clients, they treat employees incredibly well, the benefits are as good or better than all other consulting firms I have either worked for or where I know people, and there is considerable ability for upward movement in the company.

      Cons

      After 17 years with the company I really have not found any cons.

      Pros

      Great team that takes the time to listen and react to all members. Such a great place for women to work. You've got women in all levels of work helping and leading each other to excel.

      Cons

      Not all business centers are managed equally as well. The philosophy of work and workplace ethics are very different down different branches of the company.
