If you are a narcissist, extremely dishonest, and completely incompetent, the Buildings Group management team in Vancouver will view you favourably and promote you. Promotions can be based on extreme favouritism, having an inappropriate relationship with your manager, collusion and a management team who act oblivious to all of this. This disreputable group should be shown the door for their irresponsible behavior. Do not promote those whose only interests are their job title, being abusive towards their staff and lording it over others. Upper management needs to wake up to this and take action.

The new work stations in Vancouver are so cramped that you can't even review a set of drawings as the desk is so miniature. This greedy company, to appease the shareholders who are numero uno here, are trying to maximize the amount of staff they can squeeze into the work space. It is to the point of being absolutely absurd and ridiculous and could be likened to a modern-day sweatshop.


If you are an older worker this is certainly not the place for you. Management treats older workers appallingly, will terminate them callously, and favours younger, inexperienced workers for promotions. The "Emerging Leaders" program that they had should be considered discriminatory.


The annual review program is a joke and a complete waste of time. Do not expect that it will assist you with your professional development or advancement within the company. Management can even use it as a tool against you.


Utilization is a huge priority here. You are able to view your utilization throughout the

Stantec is an incredible company with incredible opportunities. There are many sectors within Stantec, so your advancement or management is dependent on the business line you are a part of. Overall, I would recommend an opportunity with Stantec. Compared to other companies in the same industry Stantec seems to pay low-medium, but the experience is worth it. I am happy to have been a past employee of Stantec.

My tenure here on a contract was relatively brief and did not allow for much time to develop much in the way of new business as was apparently expected by management. Management had a vision but no mission as to developing new business
Pros
New Skills and Knowledge
Cons
Management Inattention

Upper Management is not honest with the employees and there are a lot of politics going on behind the doors. Technical people are really friendly and easy to work with.
Pros
Free lunches, events
Cons
Pressure, Politics

This place lost its soul. It's driven by the bottom line and not by caring for the welfare of its people. I appreciate everything I've learned from them.

Do not recommend this organization for someone looking for a positive work environment
-No job security creating undue stress on employees as they are constantly let go on a weekly basis

-Remaining employees obtain additional work load with no pay increase and continue to face uncerainty (job loss can occur at anytime)

-Pay freezes for 3 years with staff already being underpaid

-Forced office closure that is unpaid

-Improper systems in place lacking control

-Good work life balance

-Decent benefits

-Pay is not good or bad, slightly below average

-Poor Management in place, do not know how to coach and mentor employees
Pros
Good work life balance, decent benefits
Cons
Job Uncertainty, pay freezes, poor management

A great place to work in Vancouver for self starters. Many of the perks of a big company yet often a personal struggle to keep work on ones desk. Great resources for a career where one can find / secure clients and deliver projects.
