    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Aecon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The coworkers are great people to work with.

    Cons

    They attempt to say that working extra in the summer is compensated by working less in the winter, but it does not even out. Other companies/industries that do this atleast have much higher compensation. Most other construction companies atleast pay hourly for overtime, even if it isn't time and a half.
