Document Control Specialist (Current Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 8 January 2015
Very supportive, professional atmosphere. Opportunities for learning. A company dedicated to the community. Employees have the opportunity to be involved in outside of work activities: dragon boating, tennis, volleyball, etc.
Company with great potential...mismanaged to death
Lead structural designer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, B.C. – 10 June 2014
like most larger companies, they have far too many managers who seem to work independently more often than not.
extremely large amount of money spent on 'branding' as opposed to fostering relationships with existing, established clients, which would continue to produce actual jobs
Safety is a priority as it should be in a work environment, but far too much time and money spent on redundant, unproductive, repetition of obvious safety awareness and mitigating measures by office staff.
Professional Engineer (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 18 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.
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.
A very safety conscious owner and work team.
Not many to mention, if one would be it was a very windy site.
Drafter (Former Employee) – Vancouver – 1 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
Learned a lot and friendly atmosphere with good co-workers
Very ruthless cut-throat company, don't trust them
