Due to the nature of small maintenance project like replacement for 2 E-houses that needs 3 months to complete the engineering phase of works are no room for mistakes. It should deliver the quality of works on time.
Pros
Small project and can be done in only few months
Cons
Long hours with less to no mistakes to finish on schedule

The culture at Stuartolson appears to be lacking. They laid-off several of their key players instead of allowing these players to find alternate roles. Management is also lacking, and there is no real room for growth or improvement. Not recommended.

I was let go because the VP was convinced by another employee that I was no longer effective so they could put their own person in my position. I was not respected by new VP.
Cons
Was good prior to 2013

I was given opportunities for advancement. Pay was decent. And for the most part they always tried to keep me working even when work was slow. Relaxed but efficient crews.

As in all companies, cliques exist within Stuart Olson; management was somewhat chaotic due to instability in the construction market. There are some really good people within the organization. Overall they are a good company to work with.

I worked at Stuart Olson for about two and half years. I would still be there but, the economy forced them to shut down the division I was working in. They did everything that said they going to do. Most people who work there are there 10 plus years. I would recommend them for sure. Just be aware that it is construction and if it's slow lay offs can happen. It's the nature of the industry.

Great place to work as long as you fit in with upper management. They talk a good game, but don't hold up on their end. Full of empty promises. Not enjoyable.

Management is losing sight of their people, they do not stay true to their mission statement. If you are a male working in the construction industry you will enjoy it here.
