3rd year apprentice, welder (Former Employee) – Cold Lake, AB – 19 January 2016
As long as it was a productive day at work and able to go home safe at the end of the shift, then it was a good day. Structural GF & the Pipefitter's GF were awesome guys to work for because they cared about the input of the people working underneath them. They knew that a happy crew was a safe & productive crew! Hardest part of the job, was watching people with families being laid off....On the account of management bidding aggressively on jobs!
Great people to work with
Management hasn't changed their way of thinking about employees or the business
Registered Electrician Apprentice (Former Employee) – Fort McMurray, AB – 8 January 2016
At the time i was working for URS energy now AECOM. They kept me busy with challenging tasks that helped me along with my electrical apprenticeship. Management could use some help, if you weren't part of their inner circle, you suffered.
A well-managed company that values it's employees.
Site SCM Lead (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 January 2016
Typical on-site industrial construction in the oil and gas sector. Management was well represented and receptive. My co-workers were professional and respectful. The hardest part of the job was when there was no more work. (industry-wide economic downturn).
Management cares about it's people.
Other than factors beyond it's control (ie: industry slow-down)....none.
Recruiter-contract (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 December 2015
Aecom was going through some growing pains transitioning from FLINT, to URS and then AECOM. Oil prices dropped and they had to re org. has been a difficult time for many. I loved being able to work from home and still be communicating with candidates regularly as I was recruiting for oil and gas. The team I was working with was fantastic, although I was not in the office often, we had a very good working relationship.

Specialist III, Support (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 5 November 2015
No room for advancement through training. Always tight on money. Insane corporate culture and process. A silo mentality abounds. Everyone in I.T. too paranoid about their jobs to share helpful information. Executive management doesn't give a "care" for the users at the desk. It's all about lining their pockets and screw the rest.
HSE (Current Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 23 October 2015
Need more communication between business units and districts. A lot of juggling personnel around the offices. A lot of unnecessary employees holding positions that should be eliminated for budget enhancement on projects.
