Large company; good place to start engineering career
Controls Engineer (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 June 2015
Stantec is a great company if you're just starting your career as an engineer, or if you like large company culture where roles are narrow and every little task has documentation to describe it and a person allocated to it.
Like most large companies, Stantec is a big ship that is slow in making changes.
IT department is breathing down your neck all the time. Use of computers has many restrictions.
Extremely risk averse, so if you are thinking of bringing the company work, you might have a few disappointments.
Engineering quality is usually very good.
Good benefits, good place to learn if you're starting
Too many restrictions, too slow, too risk averse
