Junior Ecologist (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 16 March 2014
This was my first time working the the field as an employee rather than as a volunteer. I always felt safe to express my concerns and felt comfortable in my work environment.
I learned how to manage my time, how to prepare for bad weather conditions, and the traveling made me a wonderful driver. Also, I become very familiar with the paperwork that needed to be done when environmental assessments are conducted.
Everyday, I was doing something different. I spent a lot of time traveling to my field work, but then also spent days in the office doing paper work.
I learned how to be responsible for myself in the setting of a large company. I learned how to do my own expenses, rent cars for myself, and what was expected in a field environment whether I was working alone or with others.
I enjoyed working with everyone at Stantec. I got to meet and collaborate people on all levels.
There weren't many aspects of this job that I found hard. I felt physically challenged in the field at times, but I enjoyed what I accomplished.
The most enjoyable part of my experience at Stantec was learning the different aspect to environmental assessments, and feeling like I was making a difference in my own community.
Overall, this position trained me to be an exceptional field worker.
Excellent working environment and a great opportunity for learning.
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

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.

Fairly easy-going laid-back atmosphere in which to work. They provide everything you need to do the tasks you're assigned, plus a number of perks in the office (fancy coffee machines, gym, nice lunchrooms, computers/smart-boards in the meeting rooms, etc.).
The people are always willing to help, and generally very friendly and approachable.
Depth and breadth of knowledge and experience
Difficulty scaling down processes for smaller projects
Stantec is a dynamic work place of profissionals with excellent support for employee

Adminstrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 16 September 2016
Do not recommend this organization for someone looking for a positive work environment -No job security creating undue stress on employees as they are constantly let go on a weekly basis -Remaining employees obtain additional work load with no pay increase and continue to face uncerainty (job loss can occur at anytime) -Pay freezes for 3 years with staff already being underpaid -Forced office closure that is unpaid -Improper systems in place lacking control -Good work life balance -Decent benefits -Pay is not good or bad, slightly below average -Poor Management in place, do not know how to coach and mentor employees
The company provide a healthy environment, good balance of work and life.
CADD Technician (Victoria) (Former Employee) – Victoria, BC – 25 July 2016
Stantec provide a healthy working environment to employees, good benefits and salary, unfortunately it depend to the individual manager that runs the department, some are great and some runs their department to their own benefits. the company policy structure is great if but not followed.
My 4 years at Stantec - from September 2012 to september 2016 have been very rewarding. I worked with a team of dedicated professional, always available to share their passion and knowledge. It was an overall great first professional experience. I had the opportunity to develop many skills, in parallel to be trained as project engineer and introduced to business development. Stantec offered me many opportunities I sized.
