A good place to work
Senior Instrumentation Engineer (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB19 January 2017

I wasn't very active before. However, with the daily exercise I started to run and even finished a 10km racing which was not possible to me at all.
Pros
Good management
Cons
Shortage of work due to the low oil price strike to Alberta oil sand industry

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.
