Overall, it is a good place to work. I came in knowing absolutely nothing about plants and restoration. I was eager to learn and after one year I was able to identify numerous plants by their common name and scientific names. When it comes to Restoration, Stantec is on top of the field compared to its competitors. People from "rival" companies interview with Stantec looking for better opportunities. The safety plan and risk management strategies are incredibly in-depth; sometimes too in-depth (There is a safe work practice on how to sit in a chair and how to use a light switch). The hardest part of the job is the working conditions, like weather, terrain and use of heavy equipment. I have worked in sub-zero degree temps, 50+ mph wind gusts, etc.
Safety Focussed, work at state nature preserves and sensitive areas
Work in adverse conditions (weather, terrain, etc), physically demanding/draining some days
