    I have been working at Aurecon full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Haven't been sacked yet.... And the office is new

    Cons

    No growth in the last 5 years, management takes no accountability... Promotion is based on years in industry rather capability. Poor recognition of performance. Poor working culture. Disproportionate division of company profit/bonuses...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some people in who actually understand business to run the company

    I have been working at Aurecon full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Knowledge from others. If you are a graduate, not a bad place to kick start here. But after a few years reality will set in

    Cons

    Aurecon keeps changing its focus and theme till some execs themselves are confused.Having been here for years, if you have a not too bad job I can only say the grass here is denifinitely not greener.Annual employee survey speaks for itself,yet execs are still scratching their head. Come next year when new Mr Iron Fist CEO joins in, only hope is it wont get any worse for staff.Unless you are a workaholic,career advancement remains a dream.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good engineer is not good manager. Good manager is not good leader. Get rid of old school execs and focus on what is the most important ingredient in an organisation.

    I worked at Aurecon full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    People were great to work with....good understanding of clients and delivered good technical solutions...

    Cons

    Senior management did not understand about communication...telling is not communicating. Executive managers were very aloof, almost without feeling, very few were leaders and those that had shown leadership skills were quickly put down. Very much a boys club...with those in the boys club a protected species

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Practice what you preach to staff, be more humanistic and get rid of the old boys network attitude.

    Pros

    Great place to learn company politics

    Management is the problem - no advice will help

    Pros

    sometime a nice working environment ,also social club has several good benefits

    Cons

    Unless you are a major stakeholder you have no future in this company, minimum wage no rewards.
    HR is a pathetic joke, job place bulling occurs on daily basis and complains to the HR or the director will get you dismissed.
    Company concerned more with how much profit they make rather than the quality of the outgoing work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pull your finger out and start looking after your workers.

    Pros

    good 'women in engineering' network

    Cons

    Encouraged to keep quiet and accept the old way.
    Innovation and change scares middle management.
    workers kept in the dark about important issues.
    Difficulty keeping to budget with drafting pool booking pc downtime to my project.
    IT support unsatisfactory.
    Female staff paid less than male equivalent.
    Some staff have never worked anywhere else, very institutionalised, toe the line or else.
    Have witnessed management treat some colleagues unfairly.
    I wont be back

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do an anonymous survey, be surprised.
