    I worked at Stantec full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Great social activities, but that seems to be the main focus. - Can be really flexible (depends who you work for)

    Cons

    - 'Boys Club' - Managers and Section Leaders are arrogant, rude, and belittle females (sorry should say 'girls). - Hours are very long with a toxic 'work hard play hard' mentality - For some reason only the toxic people get promoted, and then the people who try to work for good change leave. - Deadlines are often missed, or not adequately allowed for by the Section Managers so nothing gets done without an immense amount of stress - Salary is below average
