Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
I worked there as instrumentation tech. company is good but no job security any time they can kick you out of the job without any reason. If you are looking short term position go ahead.

Pros

Free lunches

Plenty of exposure to large projects

You'll get plenty of exposure to large projects but can get pigeonholed to doing certain tasks. As with all companies, high utilisation is encouraged.

Good work/life balance. Terrible leadership commitment

Upper management is out of touch with the workforce. Talks a big game, but doesn't walk the talk. It's unfortunate, because they could have a great company, but it's all broken promises.

Fast paced, but good team work

A typical day was fast paced, good teamwork.Unstable work, you work then you wait to work again. Overall they were a great place to work, but stability of work due to economic reasons makes it hard. Work personnel are always changing, and the pay isn’t the best.

Pros

Fair

Cons

Fast paced

Good company to work for in general. Got reduction in benefits due to the economy while I was employed there. Stayed in camp provided by client under CLAC contract.

Good shift terrible pay for field/camp work

Want to make the same as a job in town that would have you home every night but don't mind leaving home every second week to stay in camp for no insensitive in pay to compare? Then you'll love it lol.

Keeping wages low and expectations high

They’ve taken a good portion of the market by cutting wages and expenses, and raising employee expectations. It’ll always be a downhill slide. It’s a job, but try a different company if possible

Pros

There really aren’t any. It’s a job

Cons

Management is always looking to cut a buck at your expense and blame the clients

Waste of your life

If you're looking for a steady job with NO career advancement opportunities, work in Fort McMurray with AECOM. Their below averages wages and demeaning work tasks/atmosphere will keep you barely paying the bills until the day you can't take it. Don't let anyone fool you, the camps are terrible, the flights are always messed up, and anyone working for CNRL can and will treat you like a bag of * daily.

Pros

If you like seat time, odds are you'll be getting alot of it. Tonnes of time to rethink your choice to work at a CN site, desserts are good in camp

Cons

Straight time, impossible to get answers from aecom about any personal questions, CLAC is a joke, the covid protocols are a joke, camp sucks, camp food is salty

steady work

Decent place to work but gets repetitive after a few months. Great co workers and nice camp although it is quite a walk to and from the work site. best part is the 7 days off.

Pros

lots of time off

Cons

very repetitive work

Teamwork

I worked in Toronto for Aecom and we had a team approach to all aspects of the projects. Co workers were top class. Greeting each other in the morning was the order of the day, regardless how your day started that one little "good morning" set the tone for your day. Great company.

Pros

Regular lunches together as a team.

Cons

None

Typical oil sands company

Good company in terms of work life balance and compensation is industry standard. The nepotism runs deep, better make friends quick depending on where you end up.The company is very financially driven, will go to no end to make sure they save at your expense. Not a company to build a career with, good if you need work and like shut downs.

Pros

Consistent schedules, pay is always on time

Cons

Company will always win at your expense

By far my favorite company to work for!

I have worked for Aecom on and off for a few years and have never had a bad experience! They are always understanding of family life and work/life balance. I am usually given alot of free reign on Aecom projects as they are usually limited on ironworkers but once they realize you are competent they leave the work to you and instil alot of trust into their employees. If you can get on I would always highly recommend this company
