Decent Company to Work For
Facilities Assistant (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC9 June 2016
Many great people work there making daily work very enjoyable. Follows the up and down trend of Engineering with hiring and layoffs. No raises given for consecutive years.
The company does an overall great job of keeping staff moral with biweekly donut sessions and monthly pub nights paid for.
Pros
Coworkers are great people
Cons
Cycles through staff

You're only full time if there's a project budget for your hours
Full-time salaried employee - HAH! (Former Employee) –  Calgary, AB18 June 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

Good pay, poor management
Professional Engineer (Former Employee) –  Vancouver, BC18 February 2014
Little to no culture beside safety is all we do slogan. Policies for paper, but rarely for practice. Poor management. High workload and get it done it by yesterday projects with poor planning. When stock price falls and customers are nowhere, upper management plans acquisitions. No job security. Hire-fire staff management. No advancement. No staff meetings and no performance reviews. Avoid if you can.
Pros
Good pay and location
Cons
Poor management

best company I've worked for!
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC8 November 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

Do not trust them
Drafter (Former Employee) –  Vancouver1 May 2013
I enjoyed my time with Ausenco for the most part and found my co-workers to be very friendly and helpful.
I learned new skills and experiences from some good people.

This was all good until things started to get bad for the company.
We were asked to take unpaid leave and that good things were coming.
This was all lies as they were plotting lay-offs without telling anybody.
I got stabbed in the back this way without any notice or warning.
Very unprofessional at management level
Pros
Learned a lot and friendly atmosphere with good co-workers
Cons
Very ruthless cut-throat company, don't trust them

A very well balanced group of site personal and contractors.
Civil/Structural Site Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Gibraltar Mine, B.C.23 October 2013
The project was 75% greenfield work and the balance was within the operating mill.
Particularly enjoyed this project as the scope of work was very complex and schedule driven. An exceptional team made the entire tenure a pleasure to be a main player.

The owner had selected a group of contractors which were specialists in their field which and my duties were to monitor, coordinate the daily prioritized events in a safe and cost effective manner.

The shift was 20 days in and a 8 day turnaround, hours often varied but minimum was a 10 hour shift.
Pros
A very safety conscious owner and work team.
Cons
Not many to mention, if one would be it was a very windy site.
