Job Culture
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.

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.
Pros
Depth and breadth of knowledge and experience
Cons
Difficulty scaling down processes for smaller projects

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.
