Good culture, but a corporate culture. Your pay is sacrificed to pay for all the HR and Business end employees you never see. You will work in larger engineering projects and miss out in the small ones because of the overhead that’s factored into pricing. There is potential to collaborate on projects with other Stantec offices out of your city. Stantec is a great way to learn formal engineering practice. The habits they build keeps your work professional. Stantec has a great deal of resources to help you learn the different engineering practices. Between the people and documentation available, you can learn as much as you would like to. Your growth depends on your initiative and discipline.
Pros
Professional atmosphere, great exposure, opportunities to grow
Cons
Lesser pay, takes time to climb corporate ladder

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.

i enjoyed working at Stantec. I believe I am worth more money for my experience,efforts and work ethic but as such a large company raises are not based on performance but how a whole division did that year.
I also do not like being laid off over the winter months when there is not enough work on the go for field work.

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...

They hire on the large volume and lay off on large volume.

Technically company just focus on its own project demand basis and do not consider to invest on its employee.
