Management (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 April 2018
Came from Flint Energy Services it was a good company with lots of opportunity to advance and had knowledgeable management learn from. Once URS then Aecom bought them out most management left or were dismissed, the opportunities diminished and employees began to feel more like a number then part of a productive organization. They started selling off key parts of the business as the construction division of the company does not fit the engineering "cubical style" business model.
If your a yes man you'll do great
Uncertain job security, Management unwilling to make a decisions always pointing a finger else where.
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Vancouver, BC – 18 September 2017
Very large, faceless corporation that seems to have forgotten it's the people underneath management that make it run. Management is hit or miss; some invest in you while others are too busy trying to keep utilization up. The culture is quiet; there isn't much ongoing in the way of office socialization so people tend to come in, do their job and go home. Some small groups have formed cliques but it's pretty quiet. Too much socialization is looked down on so it tends to happen outside of the office. While I wouldn't stay for management, I would stay for the people you work with. While busy and not overly social, you do form friendships and camaraderie with people who make the day enjoyable.
Lead (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 September 2017
The company grows by acquisitions and as a result the uniformity that it tries to achieve struggles, this is also hampered by the fact that it is a large public company that's main goal is to meet quarterly targets.
Apprentice Scaffolder (Former Employee) – Ft Mckay – 12 September 2017
As a whole the company was pretty good. The scaffolding Supers were a little out of their element, but managed pretty well. the crews were great and the work was typical, some slow times and some hair straight back times. The client was pretty easy to get along with and were supportive of the maintence crews
Laborer/Welder's helper (Former Employee) – Cold Lake, AB – 11 September 2017
I worked for AECOM for 6 year and I loved it. The friendly co-workers and foreman make it a great place to learn how to do your job and do it safely. I would have stayed there for life but the shop was starting to close their doors because of lack of work.
PROJECT COORDINATOR/ENGINEER-IN-TRAINING (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 6 September 2017
Review of this company is out of date (10 years), I trust things have improved. The staff made it a fun place to work, however, the management and expectations of staff and their time was a disapointment.
Quality Coordinator (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 17 August 2017

Project Manger (Former Employee) – Alberta – 4 August 2017
Good company to work for. I liked my position as a Flint employee. The AECOM transition is still in the building stages and they still need to get a foot hold in the oil and gas sector outside the Flint name.
Roustabout/Boiler Crew (Current Employee) – Cold Lake, AB – 26 July 2017
Having a work truck was very nice not having to send money on gas to get to the job,just have to put in the time picking up people. The boss's where all good to work for as well,just do your job and do the job right and know problems. The pay was very good. One of the not so good things just long hours.
Always new tasks to learn and friendly co workers.
Accountant (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 14 July 2017
At Aecom typical day start at 8:00 A.M. with staff meeting. After that working on daily tasks with half an hour lunch break and i finished at 16:30. I have gained experience for Accounts receivable, Accounts payable and other accounting tasks. I also gained friendship for great co workers. Management was great, helping and always motivating. Workplace culture was very safty orientated and safty concious. The hardest part of the job when i do not have anything to work on. The most enjoyable part when you get appriciation on doing a good job.
Area Business Unit Lead, Buildings, Western Canada (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 13 July 2017
AECOM is a large company that can, and does, provide challenging work. Change is a normal part of the work experience there. The team atmosphere provides ample opportunity to work with, and learn from, excellent people.
Always challenged to improve and grow the business.
Support services need to be more responsive to operational team requirements.
