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.

Good place to work with a good opportunity for advancement. Managed well with a good life/work balance. Salary is comparable to rest of industry. Job security is always a concern in the oil and gas buisness.
Detailer (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 4 April 2016
I worked at Stantec for about a year, my team and I came from Dessau, and was treated very warmly by our new co-workers, they were very helpful and patient in helping us with administrative and logistical issues when we were trying to settle in, and from time to time we would talk in the small kitchen.
There's also frequent social events like monthly BBQ during the summer and Christmas potluck.
Unfortunately our team had financial issue and had to let me go.
Lots of opportunities to advance, friendly work environment with frequent group events
Not a lot of cooperation between teams in different sectors, they're like separate companies doing their own thing.
Was a much better company before taken over by Stantec
Field Technologist (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 31 March 2016
I started at Jacques Whitford and then it was bought out by Stantec. Project managers became accountants and we all became a number. Management really is terrible especially in Markham and Mississauga. There is NO respect for people that work in the field.

Stantec est une très grande entreprise, il est donc difficile de généraliser sur l'environnement de travail de l'entreprise. Cependant, je suis exclusivement associé à un seul bureau de projet dont son seul client est la STM. Les projets sont de grande envergure mais il faut s'adapter à la lourdeur des tâches administratives qu'impose le client public.Le poste que j'occupe est bien pour apprendre la méthode de travail et l’exécution des quarts de métiers qui réalisent notre ingénierie.
