Too many chiefs
I found it a challenging place to work. The managers would take work, leaving not enough work for employees and they would be given credit for doing so. They would have 98% efficiency, leaving employees struggling around 50% having to use leave with out pay to fill timecards.

Great place
Great place to work as a field employee, amazingly for a large company, you don't feel like just a number. I was always treated fairly, and as someone with chronic medical problems, they always were very accommodating.

Stress and pressure can vary with the project, management and clients. There is help from others in the field that you are working in as well as other areas of the projects. The company offers advancement from within the company.

Horrible place to work
It was a horrible place to work. They treated people unfairly, fired people for no reason at all - called it a reorg. Leadership had no idea what they were doing.

Direction immédiate sans paroles
Aucun autres commentaires. Pas vraiment de complicités et de collaborations entre la direction immédiate et les Surveillants de chantier

Fun and learned a lot of information
Awesome place to work! Everyone was friendly and willing to help out and make me feel at home. After my first week they took me out for a lunch and joked with me about my first week. They gave me feedback on my work ethic and helped me figure some more things out.

Culture has changed
The work culture use to be really good but things have changed. Leadership is no longer transparent with you. There's a lot of favoritism so it does matter who you know. You could be doing well but if you aren't favorited, you could be on the chopping block.

The company speaks highly of work/life balance but does not do anything to implement it.

Job Work/Life Balance
I don't think it's the place where you can have Job Work/Life Balance. there is a lot of stress. you will not have enough budget to do your work; therefore, they make you work overtime for free to achieve your goals.

Unstable company
Do not keep to their own policies. Management bullies and threatens your job security.
Upper management does nothing about it.

Makes you work overtime and do not allow you to claim it.

Enjoyable and passionate work environment
Working at Stantec provided a stimulating and challenging work environment. Unfortunately with the decline in the current economic, changes were made and I dedicated my time to managing 3 small business which I was part owner of.

great team collaboration, safety first priority growth too big employees are becoming numbers
17 years ago it was a medium size company and employees groups felt like families and employees were provided incentives to excell, now too many employees and the company is too big cares only about profits and rewards for employee excellence has dwindled considerably, good place to mentor and start an engineering careen, however best to not plan on staying long.

Overall
Very stressful place to work, unrealistic deadlines, poor communication, not respected by drafting managers. Use senior designers to get project to certain point then drop them using intermediates to finish project leaving people out of work. Management bashing other designers and clients in front of staff and other designers. Ego issues with management.
