    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Aecon full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You get to work on very interesting projects that get national interest. Continuous training and development is provided

    Cons

    the 40 hrs/week doesn't exist, you time is the project schedule time. But I guess that is part of the construction industry

    Advice to Management

    hire more women as project manager, there is a huge gap

    I have been working at Aecon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Excellent Executive Leadership Team Excellent opportunities for growth within company Huge projects and opportunities for great experience Great people Sky is the limit

    Cons

    Work life balance needs to be established early on and maintained because if you give they will take. Not huge base salaries but once in a management position the bonuses become substantial

    Advice to Management

    Improve performance review process. The process has been changing every year for 5 years and is not clear how it effects bonuses.
