Environmental Specialist (Current Employee) –  Philadelphia, PAJuly 18, 2018
At Stantec, you can really broaden your scope of skills and abilities, but it often comes with a pretty grueling schedule, or long-term dedications to jobs, leaving little time for personal/family life.
Pros
Good working atmosphere
Cons
Overbearing management

Great upper management and room for growth.
Office Manager / Project Assistant (Former Employee) –  Redlands, CAJuly 15, 2018
Through all of my years and the acquisition of a smaller firm, I have truly enjoyed all of my supervisors/Project Managers and for the most part co-workers. Stantec has always tried to pay me the least they possibly could. Thank goodness for their benefit packages that make it worth the hassle of some of the more competitive employees, which you will find on any large corporation.
Pros
Civil Engineering, Land Use Planning & Geology Department Managers great to work for
Cons
Stantec will pay you the lowest possible for your position.

Good Opportunity but not a good work culture
Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Bakersfield, CAJuly 11, 2018
Working at Stantec felt like I was working for a disjointed company interested in growing through acquisitions as quickly as possible, rather than through organic growth. Our original company had a strong work culture prior to the acquisition, and though some things continued to be as normal as promised, other aspects felt very impersonal.

Beware of Finance organization jobs located outside of Edmonton
Finance Director (Current Employee) –  Broomfield, COJuly 7, 2018
The company leadership and finance organization positions are extremely Edmonton-centric, with positions in Broomfield treated as lower-class. Very difficult dynamic to work and advance in.

Project/Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Beachwood, OHJuly 5, 2018
Good place to work with great employees. Stantec bought out our former company and I missed the "small town" feel of our original firm, but we were able to maintain much of that after the merger.
Pros
Good people, collaborative nature

Managers need to be fired
Surveyor (Former Employee) –  Laurel, MDMay 17, 2018
Managers causing stressful work situations with individuals they oversee. Managers not only yell at coworkers, but undermine them/their work. Managers also have been known to yell at clients. That lead to clients not wanting to work with Stantec any longer.

Good people all doing their best. Good place for a job, but not for a career. Top down approach to management stymies empowerment and lacks accountability.

Small office in large company with fantastic attitude
CAD Designer (Current Employee) –  Logan, OhApril 17, 2018
Everybody is committed to their motto: "Building communities". They all take their work seriously and professionally, working unbelievably hard to do the right thing, not just make the money. As a consultant helping small communities find funding and workable designs for necessary (and frequently mandated) water and sewer projects, they walk a difficult line of meeting federal or state regulations and guidelines while helping non-technical folk understand and complete projects that can be overwhelming to a small village or town council.

The engineers are sharp and personable, willing to explain even small details, while encouraging everybody to jump in and do all that they are capable of.

Information is freely shared, they are open to new ideas, and have great camaraderie among employees. High recommended location to work!
Pros
Frequent lunches, great management, holidays and sick days off, VERY positive attitudes
Cons
"Nature of the industry" issues, constantly changing designs and priorities, coordinating multiple and competing objectives
