I enjoyed my time at the Aurecon Group (22Years)
Advisory division was great!

Beautiful Building and excellent working Conditions!

Sadly I was one of the Unlucky ones being retrenched.

allowed to do my job with all the suport needed
Supervised the projects and managed the smooth running of the contractors commitments to the client. Keep a tight control on the budget. Made sure that all relevant good practices and regulations were adhered too. That work was well planed. Instilled in to everyone involved the following two rules:
"6P's rule"-'Poor ,Preparation, Produces , Poor, Professional, Performance'

"KISS"-'Keep IT Simply Sustainable"

Challenging and rewarding
The line manager assigns tasks to the technicians in the team. The various tasks are rotated amongst the technicians to allow all members in the team to gain experience in the various activities in the design process. The work load and fast-pace environment is often stressful. The challenging environment is a rewarding one when objectives and goals are achieved. The culture at Aurecon is inclusive, friendly and fun.

Aurecon offers exposure to big-scale projects
Aurecon's focus on Multidisciplinary consulting services contributes to make it very attractive to graduate recruits.

Other leisure programs such as Friday afternoon drinks also go a long way to enhance employee interaction and motivation.

Only one daily goal: reaching deadlines.
Typical day consists of planning and progress meetings? Design of civil infrastructure needs a lot of hard work that cannot be shifted to someone else. Reaching deadlines are a result of teamwork and dedication. Managing own productivity is key to success. Hardest part of the job, to manage resources, motivate key personnel to reach the finish line in record time, every time.

Terrible workplace at times for people of color
Technicians and Technologist are downgraded to merely Draughtsperson, which they won't get a chance to do design work and site visits. I don't think Aurecon values people from university of Technologies
Pros
Free alcohol on Fridays
Cons
Long hours

Long hours and poor benefits
Aurecon provides a good platform to learn, however, if you are placed on a fixed term contract, don’t expect a market related salary or benefits. Aurecon places new employees on contract so that they can give you the absolute minimum required benefits and justify a mediocre salary. Also, it enables them to get rid of you if it’s no longer financially viable to keep you, therefore job security is not guaranteed. If offered a fixed term contract, rather not take it. They will expect you to work overtime with no pay, all while expecting that you will be satisfied with the poor benefits. The company provides no room for growth and doesn’t incentivize hard work.
Pros
Nice offices
Cons
Long hours, poor salary and benefits

Complicated structure and poor management
Worked in the finance division. Finance department still very much white afrikaners dominated. The increases and bonuses are very low for support staff. Job safety poor due to retrechments. Finance management difficult to work with due to their poor managemnt skills. There is a culture of fear and no room for mistakes due to management who will shout and talk roughly to you if a mistake is made. If you want career advancement dont work at Aurecon.
Pros
Nice offices

Good place, Good people, below average salary, minimal room for growth
Aurecon is a great place to work at, there is a wealth of information and highly talented individuals that you have the opportunity to work with. The variety of work you are involved in is a great benefit.

However a few cons are:

- Slightly lower salary compared to industry

- Room for growth seems limited

- Current concerns over job security due to inflow of work

No growth
There is no clear trajectory for individual growth. No transformation. Everything seems good when you're outside but an entirely different story once employed. Zero inclusive corporate culture
