Very clean work environment
9 to 5 a typical day of work did not learn much (old software) and limited access. as per management philosophy it was not beneficiary for me.
work place culture was very nice I had the best coworker.

Headrest part of the job was very short time frames for the jobs, I had to put in extra hours of work and no pay!

Do not walk the talk
Company has several values that they do not actually do. They are very top heavy and do not appreciate the people doing the work. The market they are in is very competitive so most important thing is always the bottom line.

Too much politics, Fire at will
Very competitive and hence, the collaboration between different teams suffers. Too much focus on the risky business sector such as mining. Hence, when times are slow, they have to let go off the staff. Need to compete in public infrastructure consulting sectors to compensate for slow times in mining sectors. Need to expand the seismic team to build on the expertise.

"Look elsewhere"
I have been working at Ausenco for more than a year, stay away from this place

I found Nepotism and inner circles.

Less competitive pay compared to others

Values aren’t aligned throughout management.

Old school working style.

Fear based culture

Nice Teammates but lack of structure and proper management
The company always hires and fires people based on if they have projects or not so no real job security there, salaries are standard, but management is very loose there is days when its hard to know what to do...

NOT a friendly work place
Consulting companies are ruled by hire and fire mentality and Ausenco is no exception. If you add to that how volatile is the mining sector you should be always ready to move.

Toxic and desperate place to work
Transactional and incompetent management stain and hinder this company's success. People come and people go. Especially the good ones. Unfortunately the toxic executive management disable the best efforts of a believing Canadian workforce. They don't think Canadians can do great engineering.
Cons
Claustrophobic workplace, angry management, no career path forward

Toronto Office
I would never recommend it.
As the headquarter for the marketing team is in Australia, they pay very little attention to the Canadian marketing team.

Overall, the turn over is extremely high and the environment is not friendly.

Close knit group and very approachable managers.
The work environment was very team oriented. I learned a lot about different oil projects, and the techniques used to extract oil from the oil sands. The management team was very approachable and friendly.

stay away from this company as they will ruin your career
This is one of the worst companies I have ever worked in. They treat engineers as slaves and put them in a very small cubical spaces without any wall between that will only be found in call centers of china. although they are in Vancouver, Canada and supposed to be at those standards. The reason is their business does not really relates to engineers, and they will get their cut from "procurement" of large material handling equipment's like shiploader and conveyors. they hire and fire people on regular basis. If you are not inside the gangs of management or don't have a secret relationship with them, you will be always treated as a second citizen there. the amount of corruption is unbelievable there and I wonder why RCMP or Australian government don't do anything about them.
Pros
nothing is pros
Cons
everything about them is cons.

Over all a great atomosphere working with coworkers
Nothing really to say. Pretty nice company over all to work for! Management is really nice. Although in this economy, oil and gas is not doing too great. I'm not getting too much hours.

Interesting and enjoyable team
Ausenco's head office is located in Brisbane Australia and has several offices world wide. The Halifax office was initially opened by Projex a Calgary base engineering company providing service to the Oil and Gas industry, they were acquired by Ausenco in 2013. The staff and managers where enjoyable to work with, providing for an enjoyable atmosphere in which to work.
Pros
Great working atmosphere
Cons
Not enough work to keep the Halifax office productive

Decent Company to Work For
Many great people work there making daily work very enjoyable. Follows the up and down trend of Engineering with hiring and layoffs. No raises given for consecutive years.
The company does an overall great job of keeping staff moral with biweekly donut sessions and monthly pub nights paid for.
Pros
Coworkers are great people
Cons
Cycles through staff
