I have been working at Stantec full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

ability to work across North America from many offices
strong presence in multiple sectors and service lines
ability to be part of multi-disipline projects

Cons

some managers with misplaced focus on utilization of thier people over what is best for clients and the company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

management approach is still not consistent with the CEO's vision in all regions, need to identify managers that are just out to climb the ladder and not develop employees, quality services that will lead to organic growth

Recommends

    I worked at Stantec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Variety of project types and sizes

    Cons

    Driven by the the bottom line
    Work-sharing doesn't really work - offices fight for revenue
    Different offices compete for the same work
    Young managers are put in over their heads
    They simply don't care about their people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What upper management says to the offices doesn't matter.
    People Center? not a chance!

    I worked at Stantec

    Pros

    OK salary, good benefits
    Big company
    Maybe good if you're an engineer

    Cons

    As one co-worker put it, it's more like "One company, infinite egos". I was brought in as a intermediate/senior environmental specialist and was put onto projects I had no experience with, given no real training, and kept on being told incomplete information about projects I was given to work on, making me look the fool in front of clients. After becoming one of the top employees in three years at my previous company, I was "let go" after less than a year. A demotivating company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get people to work within their skillsets, and train them into senior roles
