Area Business Unit Lead, Buildings, Western Canada (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 13 July 2017
AECOM is a large company that can, and does, provide challenging work. Change is a normal part of the work experience there. The team atmosphere provides ample opportunity to work with, and learn from, excellent people.
Always challenged to improve and grow the business.
Support services need to be more responsive to operational team requirements.
Labourer (Former Employee) – Cold Lake, AB – 27 March 2017
Worked with good people who knew how to do their jobs well and safely. Had a decent foreman who helped when needed. Got along with co-workers who were always willing to lend a hand. The workplace culture is very safety orientated and safety conscious. Field Level Hazard Assessments are done daily to identify and mitigate hazards.

Structural EIT (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 9 March 2017
A well established work space but a need to have a stronger community within it. Management were quite distant at times, and not always there to offer guidance. The hardest part was trying to move forward with an inexperienced team, and constantly hitting brick walls. I met some really decent people in this company, and came away with an appreciation of Transmission and Distribution sector.
Organized sporting events
Remote location in Burnaby; office space not integrated
Apprentice (Former Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 16 February 2017
Always treated well and was a very friendly team orientated work atmosphere. Would continue to work for them if there wasn't a shortage of work. Great learning environment for starting out in the trade.
Senior Project Safety Advisor (Former Employee) – Cold Lake Alberta – 24 January 2017
I have worked for a few global firms but AECOM is a company where if you dream it you can make it happen. I have never felt so connected to a company in my entire life, I found a company which has the same belief system as me, I hope I have the chance to work with this firm again.
Apprentice Pipefitter (Former Employee) – Hardisty, AB – 19 January 2017
I enjoyed working for AECOM. I worked for them at two different locations and worked under two different management teams. There is a strong safety presence within the company. There were several instances where the proper tool for the job was not available.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Alberta – 13 January 2017
I have only worked for the industrial construction division located in Alberta Canada. They are a very tight group that appreciates hard work. The management that is in place, is very hands on and are in their positions due to the hard work and dedication they have put in to get there. They reward hard work and have done an excellent job of keeping their core group of workers employed through tight times in the marketplace.
Moved to smaller size jobs since taking over URS/Flint
Facilities Manager (Current Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 11 January 2017
It has been a productive experience with them. They tend to care more about bean counting and productivity than employee satisfaction or work life balance. Not much employee input allowed and the company is very poor for information dissemination.
Was an enjoyable workplace until cut backs happened.
Parts Specialist (Current Employee) – Lampman, SK – 4 January 2017
Too much indecision since buyout and cut backs. Lost a lot of benefits. Have to work too far from home, only see my family on weekends. Had great co-workers, but most of them have quit due to job insecurity.
