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

    Pros

    The local staff team are generally friendly, and employee ownership is a plus.

    Cons

    Local leadership is poor, and most of them are not qualified engineers - simply former public servants working connections with their former contacts. They can't teach junior professionals anything. The management team is toxic and hierarchical. There is little collaboration across offices. Most of the local staff are looking for a way out to advance their careers.

    I worked at Aurecon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It will be Pros if you come from AECOM.

    Cons

    To be honest, benefits aren't that great in Aurecon, but what was retaining staffs was its culture. Culture was good, people are nice, until new Asia Managing Director and his little minion, Regional CFO came on board in 2019. So nightmare started from 2019 for all Aurecon origins... Something i noticed about this French Regional CFO: 1. He is socially awkward, he doesn't mingle with colleagues. He offends all unit leaders, speak to his subordinates arrogantly, used words like "Rubbish", "Shut Up" during skype meetings. He bailed on Asia management retreat in Bali at the very last minute, claimed that he was sick. Coincidently, he sent one of his managers to the retreat days before the trip. Oh.. why am i not surprised? 2. Lunch Time He doesn't eat lunch and assume others don't eat too. He loves organising LUNCH meetings. Is staffs' well beings not important? 3. Trust Issue He has serious trust issue, especially when everyone is working from home. Best part is, he claims that he is "flexible with people working from home", but his actions are telling me otherwise. He accused me for "watching TV and sleeping at home"! What an insult to my professionalism. Another incident, he actually emailed a colleague of mine, asking her to advise for not being online on skype in the morning. 4. Company Survey I thought Aurecon's company Survey was conducted anonymously, but apparently, this french Regional CFO set up a 1-on-1 skype meeting with everyone, to find out on what people write on him, due to negative feedbacks he received. It says so much about him as a person. Loser. 5. Hiring of staff This French CFO hired many AECOM staffs backdoor. No interviews were conducted, NO job advertisement even. It's a FREE PASS to join Aurecon if you come from AECOM. And for those old Aurecon staffs, sorry not sorry. You have no choice but to give way for those backdoor AECOM staffs to replace your role. 6. Termination of Staff Regional French CFO terminated long time staffs from other countries and tries to get away with compensating them. He is putting company's position at risk for challenging those countries' Labor law. 7. Financial Numbers French Regional CFO sends emails to finance managers asking them to adjust revenue every month end. I seriously doubt the numbers presented to management..
