Decent company but not much opportunity in my area

Lots of opportunities in the east of Canada. Not so much in my area. Aecon is a very large company and a great company to work for. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Pros

Decent benefits, company vehicles and cell phones etc

Cons

Not great wages. Contract work often with lay offs

Fast Paced, work could get stressful and go long hours during peak season, takes time to grow in the company.

Excellent Team and Organizarion

The team I was working with was respectful supportive and encouraging to succeed in my career. I was appreciated and given the responsibility to thrive. No one was micromanaging and I did not feel like I was just a number in the company. With a well-established company, I got great job security with great benefits like discounted share purchase programs and RRSP matching.You are encouraged to learn and get certifications and memberships in professional organizations.The only drawback I find is the average base salary.

Pros

100% Employer Paid Benefits, Discounted Share Purchase Program, RRSP Matching, Great Management, Environment to Thrive

Cons

Long Hours, Average Base Salary

Aecon

I loved my job and learned so much. I was good at it. The only thing I didnt agree with was the manager and HR fired me for making a mistake. They never even gave me a chance to see this mistake, if there even was one. Very poor attitude in management and HR.

Good out west poor out east

I worked as a telcom tech. Money in BC was great, money in Nova Scotia for the same job is 40% less. Management was always good. Corporate could be hard to deal with to get paid correctly for stat days.

Decent

Typical coordinator job. Work is up and down and can get very busy during construction season. There are many supportive people at the company who want to see you succeed

Don’t drink the Kool-Aid

I left a good job for this disappointment and got let go after having four positions at once put on me that I didn’t apply for, unvaccinated…. And goodbye 2.5 years of project coordinator, payroll, equipment management and IT and you get cut just like that. I wouldn’t send an enemy in this direction. Consider yourself warned.

Pros

Free parking

Cons

Everything else

Environnement de travail malsain

L’environnement de travail est toxic et malsain. On a des avantages en fonction du degré de copinage avec la direction. Il y règne une ambiance de cours d’école avec des commérages et messes basses
