Every aecon job site I have worked on felt like family and everyone looked out for each other every single day for many years....there is however very little chance for advancement and wages are below average for most positions. Sometimes though, having amazing people and a well developed and implemented safety program are “pros” that outweigh the “cons” of low wages and work/life balance the folks I had the pleasure of working with were all too notch!
Pros
Challenging but supportive environment
Cons
Wages are below average

working day is typical for most of construction companies, be very careful to decide to work with the company unless you are "perfect",management has different level of experience even for senor positions, therefore,backstabbing is a normal.

Cambridge facility was better than the Darlington Nuclear project. Workers are asked to take on new roles and responsibilities with little to no training.

Awesome place to work, make lots of money & learn and expand.
Only downside to pipeline is always being away from home.


If you like hotel life, using a company truck for work, working in a crew this job is perfect

I have learned a lot in my time at Aecon. However lately they are very corporate. They don't listen to your opinion unless you are one of the elite .

I'm sure Aecon is a good company some places , but not in the lower mainland area of BC. Poor management can't accept responsibility, pass blame around. Hire buddies and fire or demote long term employees. They don't show any appreciation for the hard work you do to try and make the company look good. They don't care about workers. Management should be run off including inexperienced project managers. What a shame.
