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!
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.
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...
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.
Claustrophobic workplace, angry management, no career path forward
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.
nothing is pros
everything about them is cons.
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.
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.
Great working atmosphere
Not enough work to keep the Halifax office productive
