Archaeologists Technician (Former Employee) – Goose Bay, NL – 15 June 2017
Company was enjoyable to work for and treated all employees fairly and just. Work environment was fun to be in and made task easy to complete. Management were great and have great experience in their field.
Low morale, management is top heavy, very disorganized, talk about work/life balance, but don't really support it
Project Administrator (Former Employee) – BC – 3 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.
Mechanical Draftsman (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 4 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, AB – 1 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.
Mechanical Technologist (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 21 April 2017
After 7 years of work there, local firm was bought by Stantec. Expected to receive the 5 year bonus. Did not get it. So employees that started working after me got their 5 year bonus when they reached it.
Almost every day working on data analytics, sampling, working paper... Learned internal audit procedures. I was very independant since I was the only internal auditor in Québec, the other team members are in Edmonton. However I was in touch with Senior Auditor, receiving feedback from reviewed work. I really like working in this company. My made there my best professionnal experience
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 22 February 2017
Loved working for Stantec, great people, lots of great perks for the staff. I would have loved to stay working there except for the downsizing of the departments so thought it was time to look for another job.

Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) – Alberta – 10 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.
