Field Engineering/Survey Technician (Former Employee), Riverside, Ca. – February 3, 2014
This Company promises to have your back, but when it comes to supervisors and management they'll turn on you! Delivered tons of work on time, within budget and profit only to be kicked to the curb when workload got sparse.
not very well organized, but benefits and pay good
Desktop Support Analyst (Former Employee), Sarasota, FL – January 3, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: no time for breaks and poor management
I was in charge of IT Support for 6 offices in SW Florida, but based out of the Lakewood Ranch office. Stantec is a public company, and teamwork was lacking.....had to work more independently and that can be difficult to find answers sometimes.
Intern (Current Employee), Butler, PA – August 21, 2013
Pros: some free lunches, friendly employees
I am required to fix errors on drawings using the programs provided such as AutoCADD, Microstation and REVIT. Also, I am required to calculate loads on panels and other power equipment such as generators. I use other programs such as excel in order to adjust panel schedules and other lists to make tasks easier. During my time at this company I have – more... worked with other areas of study such as mechanical, plumbing and architecture. Plotting, scanning and emailing drawings are also part of my job description. Everyone is very helpful when I have questions and are willing to help me understand and learn from them. I enjoy the feeling of designing and helping create buildings that will be used in all aspects of life. The most difficult part of this work is getting multiple tasks given to me at the same time but I also enjoy the pressures and the tasks make the days seem shorter. – less
Engineer (Current Employee), Scarborough, Me – June 20, 2013
Cons: job stability rates way too high
Great people to work with before they bought us. Stantec management couldn't put on a one man parade. Felt like I was assimilated by the Borg of Star Trek. They spent more time worrying about advertising tag lines than selling services
Executive Assistant (Current Employee), Laurel, MD – June 18, 2013
I really enjoy working for Stantec (previously Greenhorne & O'Mara). We have a great group of employees here. At the moment we are transitioning over to Stantec and the hardest part is not really knowing what position I will end up in.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Irvine, CA – April 29, 2013
Pros: great benefits and beautiful and caring enviroment
Cons: the company progree depended on the housing market
Very exciting workplace in the Archeology Department. Seeing Artifact for the first time and learning and researching the History. Bidding for projects and setting up in the field Lunching and Safety Meeting outside by current digs. The hardest part was getting out of the office on time. You felt so excited about current projects. Most enjoyable was – more... how the company monthly took care and honored all employee. – less
Enjoyed my time with Stantec. Would recommend company to friend and have done in the past.
CADD Technician and Designer (Former Employee), Rochester, NY – December 19, 2012
Stantec is an International firm with more than 10,000 employees and many interesting and challenging projects. The Rochester office has a family type atmosphere, but always works with a professional design firm.
Cons: having to deal with difficult client situations
I've acquired managerial skills in running a team of engineers. I've also learnt how to deal with clients and juggle their needs/requirements. The hardest part is trying to understand and navigate the client's internal systems and get information out/in.
Civil / Structural Technologist (Former Employee), Rochester, NY – November 10, 2012
Pros: 40 hour work week, clean offices, free beverages
Cons: healthcare, hourly wage
Work could begin at 7:30 pm and could end by 4:30. Employees were very knowledgeable in working skills and would teach skills needed to others to get work done. It was a good learning environment for those just starting a career in design or engineering. Management was professional and involved with project teams over the duration of the project. Co-workers – more... at the same levels were very competitive with each other and formed cliques. Multiple female employees did not follow company dress and were warned multiple times. The company is a Canadian based corporation and healthcare benefits were terrible. At the wage I was making I could not afford my contribution to healthcare and make a car payment at the same time. At Stantec you can have a college degree, but it might not be the right college degree, and if you have the degree it may not be from the right college. Engineers coming in should start with having completed their FE Exam for better pay and treatment. The offices were well maintained and clean. Most enjoyable part of the job was the in house training and product seminars. If you are a coffee drinker, the coffee stations are very nice in many offices. Based on where you are in your career this could be a good place for you or if you are able to handle office cliques and other office issues. It was not the place for me at the time. Lack of a good wage and not being able afford healthcare accompanied by the office cliques and unneeded competition were my main reasons for leaving. – less
