Fired for heat stroke

I was an archaeological field technician and I was fired after having heat stroke and needing three days off to get better! They push the archaeologists way too much, always expect it to be fast and don't care if any archaeological work is being done. Salary is small considering the physical labour we are put through everyday and the fact that this is a multi-national company. If you are an archaeologist I do not recommend working here!!!!

Great consulting company

Great consulting company, but experience might differ depending on group you are working in.Unfortunately, pays below average salaries. Good place to start a career and gain experience.

Good company

A good company to work with. Hybrid work model. Respectable working environment. Pay and compensation package not very competitive. No structured career growth ladder available.

A lot of opportunities

Positive overall. Very well structured. Supportive management; you will find it hard to look for other opportunities as AECOM is a very nice place to work in. My view however, could be different from others who have bad managers.

Pretty good place to start out career, good pay

Pretty good place to start out career, good pay, crazy workload and because the company is so large you will always be just a number. The Ontario ecology team was good but now has an odd structure.

Great people, very tense.

What is the best part of working at the company?Great company. Something they need to work on is the way they lay people off. Very cold. What is the most stressful part about working at the company?Not knowing if today will be your last day. Especially if you are staff.

It paid the bills

Always messed my paid checks. Over all was not too bad being CLAC. Would work for them again, maybe not. Management was mean and ahuge disconnect. So cheers

Ok to work there

The working environment is ok, but only with good managers. Some managers had unclear directions and did not respect employees. There are opportunities to grow, but not many.

Work you into the ground, no loyalty. Autocratic

Wasn't worth my time working for this company. Just a lot of birddogging and posturing going on from the company. Always striving towards unrealistic timelines with poor leadership.




Birddoggers, 'boys club', disorganized, poor leadership.

It’s just a regular scaffolding job in central Alberta

Just the same kind of job you get anywhere in Alberta all depends on who is running the project you get hired for. Depending on who’s The super and the gf on the project you are working on will set the tone for how good or bad the job is overall.


Weekly pay


Long and hard, extremely physical and sometimes very complicated work scope

Excellent company to work for

Excellent company to work for, and if I had the opportunity I would gladly work for this company again. They are an equal opportunity employer and have a stellar safety program.

Great for Young Engineers but Low Pay

I enjoyed access to variety of resources, including technical staff expertise across the country and freedom to learn software skills. However, I found that engineer-in-training positions were often underpaid. If you stay loyal, you will receive 3 to 5 percent increase in pay every year but if you apply to a competitor then you will receive a 20-30 percent raise. Therefore, you will see a lot of turnover at the bottom and middle levels. The company will also not give you a fair offer to retain you until you resign! I assume their business model allows for high turnover because most people are ok with being underpaid. However, as a millennial who has worked under boomer managers for years, I would strongly encourage demanding fair market value as soon as possible.


Intranet resources, working and supporting teams across country


low pay and wait to receive fair value, high turnover

Good people, but typical corporation

Pros: - Great benefits.- Overall a great place to get experience and work on different projects for different private and public sector clients. - You may get the opportunity to travel for work and see different parts of the country which you may not otherwise see. - Generally nice people to work with.- Flexible work environment.Cons: - Below industry average pay. Wage will become stagnant after a few years and not keep up with inflation rates, therefore making less money each year. - Revolving door with junior and intermediate staff, always in the Storming and Forming stage. - Management seems to always change based on the corporate restructuring which can be frustrating as you have to rebuild they rapport with a new manager. - Lack of community vibe and very much a head down kind of environment.- Most people are swamped.- Big pressure to be as chargeable as possible. Seems to be the main driver for job performance.
