Low morale, management is top heavy, very disorganized, talk about work/life balance, but don't really support it
Project Administrator (Former Employee) –  BC3 June 2017
Low morale, management is top heavy, very disorganized, talk about work/life balance, but don't really support it; cut back benefits to all employees; hire people so they can use their names on RFPs to get work and then don't use the people; poor training of PM's; have procedures, but don't seem to follow them very well.

Good place to start a career
Mechanical Draftsman (Former Employee) –  Kelowna, BC4 May 2017
Decent place to start your career at. Wage is the minimum and if you stay in good terms with upper management then you can get small raises each year. As in most places there are good people and then there are the others that you will rub the wrong way. But as long as you are in the correct clic then you will have a good chance of sticking around when lay-offs are needed.

SURVEY ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB1 May 2017
Being a survey assistant consists of working outside all year round. You will be asked to assist the survey party chief in a variety of geotechnical surveys. This will involve standing walking bending digging and some heavy lifting. Overall the people I have worked with have all created a pleasant place to work.
Pros

dealing with the weather, digging

Average.
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Alberta10 January 2017
Culture is very relaxed. The biggest surprise is how such a large organization is really just a bunch of independent business units with fragmented systems, procedures and management styles. Stantec has grown through numerous acquisitions. Company lacks solid project management systems/tools but they are in the process of implementing something. It really comes down to individual employees and whether you can collaborate with them. Hardest part of the job for a PM is being responsible for everything and having little control over things like functional teams, quality of product, lack of systems and enforcement of policies. The managers and business developers seem to have the most fun as they are not having to deal with lack of systems to get the job done.
Pros
Relaxed work environment, flexible work hours.
Cons
Lacking formal systems and procedures.
