What Graduates Say About Them
  • Great exposure to major design projects. Good team to work with. Technical training through internal knowledge share and daily works
  • Company culture is focused on employees, my line manager genuinely cares and works hard to make sure all of us are fairly compensated and recognised. My mentors and experienced engineers in the team always take time to explain things and help graduates and less experienced engineers learn.
  • Aurecon has an incredibly accommodating workplace, especially for someone with disability like me. I have found the culture to be so healthy and safe. I also love how much gender balance there is here.
  • Flexible working options, good team culture, interesting and varied work
  • Wide range of different jobs from different industries allowing me to gain a lot of experience in a very short amount of time
  • Lack of visibility on senior decision making process
  • There is no formal rotation for grads, so wanting to try out what different teams do can be a challenge.
  • The workload can sometimes be intense and stressful to manage
  • Connectivity between upper and lower levels
  • Can be prone to working long hours
