Senior Scientist (Former Employee) –  Sidney, BC1 January 2019
I'm a fairly experienced senior practitioner who learned within a couple of months that my experience had no value to an insecure and ineffective management team. I had some great colleagues in other offices who were kind enough to let me bring what I could to their projects, and I learned a lot from them, which was cool. But the issues with the management team and the company's generalized tactic of dealing with slack times with enthused and immediate lay offs had the predictable outcome. Not a happy thing to have to see coming over months of staring at Stantec's widely posted slogans "we put people first" and "we do the right thing." No idea who those apply to, but it's not the employees.

Great company to work for.
STRUCTURAL DESIGNER, EIT (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON15 December 2018
Really great company to work for, although I feel your experience may be altered based on the team you are on or your supervisor. Having a great supervisor is one of the main ways you can advance your career. They mention they have flex hours, but also expect you to be at work during regular work hours. Best part of work was to be part of a really great team that had a project manager who was very supportive and believed in helping his team advance. The hardest part was getting approvals and making business cases for things as simple as getting a laptop to be able to remotely work.
Pros
Fun Social Events
Cons
Rare bonuses

Seconded to EPCOR Distribution and Transmission 6 out of 7 years with Stantec. EPCOR was an excellent company to work for.
Project Assistant/Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB25 December 2018
I was hired by Stantec due to the request from EPCOR. Once my services were not required at EPCOR, I went back to Stantec. Unfortunately the Oil and Gas industry took an unexpected turn. Stantec can no longer keep me because of the cancellation of many projects related to the Oil and Gas industry.

Great corporate culture but favouritism is rampant
Construction Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB23 October 2018
The company culture is great, lots of events and activities through out the year. Actual work was satisfying, great place to get work experience but overall pay was not great and there was too much favouritism. Creativity was not fostered what so ever as it seemed like an "old boys club" company and new ideas were immediately scrutinized. They seem to value employees that have been there the longest which kills creativity and innovation. They also seem to have postings just for fishing candidates, seen the same few postings all year, please don't waste people's time.
Pros
lots of activities
Cons
Favouritism, lack of creativity

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

Geotechnical Technician (Former Employee) –  St. John's, NL4 November 2018
My work was mostly remote and individual, which of course is great for some folks. I do appreciate how much training was provided by Stantec so I could effectively do my job - I was not just thrown headfirst into things by myself.

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...

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
