      I have been working at Stantec full-time for more than 8 years

      Pros

      * We have offices and projects all over the world, and if travel is your passion there are certainly opportunities that you can take to transfer to another office, or be relocated temporarily for a project - once you show your capabilities. * I have found that Stantec appreciates the "go-getter" and people who can work independently with slight nudges to the right direction. In many cases, there is a lot of autonomy...

      Cons

      Stantec's organizational structure is both wide and tall, with multiple overlaps of responsibility for specific groups or sections of the organization. This results in a ton of "middle managers", and can result in a paralysis of bureaucracy when looking to obtain approvals, or even to figure out who is the right person to give the approvals. With the constant growth through acquisitions, there are often pockets of...

      Advice to Management

      For new employees (especially young professionals), we should start encouraging our BC leadership to put together BC-specific on-boarding packages that would start right after the HR safety & training is done. How does that BC set up their files? Where are the templates stored? Who within the BC can be appointed as an unofficial mentor or who has the capacity to answer questions of the new employee (consider that...

      I have been working at Stantec full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

      I am new to Stantec just joining 9 months ago. My experience so far has been totally awesome. I appreciate the warm welcome and the opportunity to learn and grow but also to share my own past experiences with others.

      Cons

      A little difficult with all of the automation and on-boarding. Still learning about the processes but also finding not everyone is following the mandated processes.

      Advice to Management

      It would be great to have a dedicated champion matched to each new employee, perhaps someone from the new hire's department that is in a similar role. the new employee could shadow the champion but also use them as a ongoing resource.
