Terrible Management, Unclear Vision, Sinking Ship
Business Development / Marketing Department (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BCNovember 24, 2015
This company does not care about it's employees!
Since being brought on the company has fired half it's workforce. Unless the firing is in mass they put employees on "working notice" so they do not have to pay out severance.
The more they fire the more they expect others to take on even though they are already stretched to the max.
As a project engineer you have to meet a minimum of 90-93% reimbursable - leaving you only 1.6hrs a week to answer emails or do your timesheet.
The accounting software is a joke and bills are not getting paid (some take over a year to get paid!). The accounting team is understaffed.
The BD Director was let go and never replaced leaving the team without a leader and with no clear direction and the wrong people in charge. The work - if there is any - demands can be unreal and you are expected to be reachable at any time.
There is no mentorship - you either sink or swim when you start - and no room for growth. Everyday you hear someone is being put on working notice.
The company can't win local work because it has cut so much of it's staff. The company is commodities based regardless of the falling commodities market.
DO NOT WORK HERE!!!!!
Pros
Nice team members
Cons
High turn-over, overworked employees, depressing work environment, management hides in their offices, lack of communication, no clear goals or visions for the company, everyone works for individual growth and will stab you in the back if you are not careful, lack of HR policies, unskilled and unqualified people in management roles

Project Engineer (Current Employee) –  Calgary, ABJune 18, 2015
Ausenco Calgary and Halifax offices count with very professional people who not only allow you to learn from daily technical interactions, but also are very open to new work ways.
Pros
The diversity of people you get to work with
Cons
Dependency on continuous flow of projects, not allowing to focus on own areas of improvement.

You're only full time if there's a project budget for your hours
Full-time salaried employee - HAH! (Former Employee) –  Calgary, ABJune 18, 2015
great flexible hours if you have a budget for your work,
Co-workers are wonderful there but staff turnover is high,
Some of the managers are great to work with, but there are some managers that should not be in their positions,
Company spokesperson during coffee talk meetings is an unrealistic visionary and needs to get "real",
Pros
Flexible work hours
Cons
Poor morale within company, You're only needed if there's sufficient project budget for your hours, Company spokesperson has great visions for future work but is unrealistic

My co-workers are helpful, they help each other when needed.

best company I've worked for!
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BCNovember 8, 2012
Don't let the negative feedback fool you, Auseno is a great place to work!

Competative wages, great company culture, and management that leads by example are just a few of the reasons why there are thousands of happy long term employees here.

Review boards are always skewed because disgruntled employees take the time to complain and happy ones don't. Search any company online and you will find a ton of negative feedback.

Come work at Ausenco and decide for yourself!
Pros
contests, free lunches, yoga room, discounted transit, break room with tv and kitchen, fridays off (conditions apply)
Cons
with so many staff it's hard to remember all the names
