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.
Ingénieur électrique en bâtiment (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 29 March 2016
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.

I have been used to doing a multi task function. I have supported professional Engineers, Architects, Managers and Technicians by unloading the mundane tasks that waste their time. I am adept in process and quality improvement to make the workplace run ore efficiently. My major forte if anticipating problems and obstacles them removing them before they cause difficulty. System Analysis is is a function I find satisfying.
Interior Design Technologist (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 17 February 2016
Stantec spring boarded my career into Interior Design and Business. At Stantec, I had the opportunity to work with many talented and supportive colleagues. The environment enabled people to seek out their potential and move into other areas of interest that built upon their strengths making them leaders and role models among their peers. It was privilege to work at Stantec.

Environmental Technician - Cooperative Student (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 19 January 2016
Stantec introduced into the environmental industry by hiring me as a cooperative student. They allowed me to assist in a number of remedial and other projects. I always felt welcome here and the people I worked under were great. The training I received here gave me an upper hand and allowed me to excel in my final year of school.
