Senior Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bangkok, Thailand10 August 2019
Aurecon is a good company but there are some bad people. I worked Senior Mechanical Engineer in the Infrastructure division in Thailand. KSP sugar plant is my workplace. My responsibilities coordinate with all our disciplines. But the sometime sentence they answered me was.
1. D..mn you, Go f..ck yourself and Suck my d..ck. (Senior Civil Engineer)
2. I will hurt you. (Technician)
3. I have a gun behind the car. If you are not silent. (Civil Engineer)
**What do you think about harassment?

Long hours and poor benefits
Civil Engineer (Current Employee) –  Pretoria, Gauteng9 June 2019
Aurecon provides a good platform to learn, however, if you are placed on a fixed term contract, don’t expect a market related salary or benefits. Aurecon places new employees on contract so that they can give you the absolute minimum required benefits and justify a mediocre salary. Also, it enables them to get rid of you if it’s no longer financially viable to keep you, therefore job security is not guaranteed. If offered a fixed term contract, rather not take it. They will expect you to work overtime with no pay, all while expecting that you will be satisfied with the poor benefits. The company provides no room for growth and doesn’t incentivize hard work.
Pros
Nice offices
Cons
Long hours, poor salary and benefits

Complicated structure and poor management
Finance support (Former Employee) –  Tshwane, Gauteng14 May 2019
Worked in the finance division. Finance department still very much white afrikaners dominated. The increases and bonuses are very low for support staff. Job safety poor due to retrechments. Finance management difficult to work with due to their poor managemnt skills. There is a culture of fear and no room for mistakes due to management who will shout and talk roughly to you if a mistake is made. If you want career advancement dont work at Aurecon.
Pros
Nice offices

Good place, Good people, below average salary, minimal room for growth
Candidate Quantity Surveyor (Current Employee) –  Johannesburg, Gauteng25 March 2019
Aurecon is a great place to work at, there is a wealth of information and highly talented individuals that you have the opportunity to work with. The variety of work you are involved in is a great benefit.

However a few cons are:
- Slightly lower salary compared to industry
- Room for growth seems limited
- Current concerns over job security due to inflow of work

No growth
Contract Administrator (Current Employee) –  Pretoria, Gauteng6 March 2019
There is no clear trajectory for individual growth. No transformation. Everything seems good when you're outside but an entirely different story once employed. Zero inclusive corporate culture

Strong company with good professional development
Undergraduate Engineer/ Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Adelaide City Centre SA21 June 2018
Overall good place to work.
It felt like I was being pushed towards what they wanted me to do rather then what I was wanting to do.
Difficult to get grounding as an undergrad.
Had a good workplace culture.
Hardest part of the job was inefficient work with how it is scheduled and bureaucracy.
Most enjoyable part was completing tasks and learning skills.
Pros
Good work place, professional development.
Cons
Long hours, bureaucracy
