    I have been working at Stantec as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people are great and the work environment is very welcoming. The work itself is straightforward and the coworkers are willing to help with any question I have. There is a lot to learn from each aspect of every job.

    Cons

    In land development, the job field can become quite slow at times. The jobs themselves can become very similar to one another and, since I am only an intern, I have yet to dive into the design work.
