    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.
