Demoralizing, terrible company to work for
Administration (Former Employee) –  Vancouver Island, BC5 October 2018
Worked there 9 years and was laid off during a downturn in oil & gas industry, along with many other long term staff. Laid off in the most humiliating and inhuman way. Management is terrible. There's no room for growth, unless you're as dishonest and immoral as the higher ups. Its a toxic work environment, especially for women - sexual harassment and sexism is commonplace. Staff left on stress leave often. People in the know call it 'Satantec'. Don't go there if you have a soul.
Pros
None
Cons
Toxic place to work

Work environment is decent, lack of advancement. Coworkers are friendly, I enjoy working at Stantec, and hope I can work at a different department in the future.

Prepare to be low-balled on salary
Civil Engineering Technologist (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB30 July 2018
Overall it's a decent company but... Salaries increase barely enough to cover inflation. CEO and upper management is usually blind when they're not being tone-deaf since they really enjoy emailing everybody to let know we bought another company meanwhile we can't get a decent raise or computer upgrades. Recently had a freeze on hiring by upper management when lots of work is still to be done. Therefore everyone now has to grind it out after hours and hope your family is still home when you get there. Basically upper management will listen to your ideas and and then continue with whatever half-baked scheme they were originally planning.
Pros
Flexible hours depending on your boss
Cons
Salaries and benefits are barely competitive...

Good place to get your first experience

Large company. Large AP team. Good place to obtain your first AP experience except they are partly outsourcing AP now, so not sure how much experience is able to be gained.

Not the best place to work
Recruiter (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB2 July 2018
Big company with lots of employees. The company does not promote from within. Very high turnover and minimal opportunity to advance in your career. No job security at all, the company is always letting people go and they offer the minimum severance package.

Very friendly and welcoming environment
Engineer Assistant (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC20 June 2018
When I use to volunteer at Stantec Consulting as a Engineers Assistant, everyone were so friendly. Most work places are competitive and want to be the best at their work, but this isn't how the people at Stantec function. Every one wants to see each other prosper at their field, and if they can't they'll get the up most support and motivation that they can and they will!
Pros
Chill working environment

Behind the times
Management (Former Employee) –  Canada18 May 2018
Disappointing in how their employees are treated. Given the image they put forward, you would think they would try and achieve an inward appearance that at least mimics their exterior values. As we have all been told, beauty comes from within.
Pros
Nice office, good people.
Cons
Out of date
