Great pay but an run by Engineers and thus not always very commercially business focused. Many silly decisions made and not always interested in efficiency with internal processes!

The consulting role at Ausenco was a good one! One day you could be conducting workshops with trades people, and on another day you could be presenting results of your project to members of a senior management team of a client.


Great place to work overall!

Daily routine included some complex design resolutions involving some or all other disciplines. This allowed the appreciation of the other disciplines & their concerns. Design review meetings proved beneficial for all project team members. Management was over managed as thought by many team members. All co-workers were enjoyable to work with & many friendships resulted. The hardest part of the job was completing all designs while dealing with conferences, meetings, writing reports, responding to management emails, checking other disciplinary designs & general design resolutions. The most enjoyable part of the job was a general sense of fun around the design office.

Typical day
Emails. Grab a coffee/tea from the kitchen, have a few chats. Then get stuck in to excel or reports or team meetings. Lunch! Then back to excel, reports, research or discussing ideas. Go home.


What I learned

I learned how to do concept studies, pre-feasibility studies, feasibility studies, detailed design, and commission.


Co-workers

My co-workers made it a great place to work. We had a very good team, lots of discussions.


Hardest part

Hardest part of the job is the quiet times. The extremes, either full on (much preferred!) or a bit quiet. The quiet times made the days long.


Most enjoyable part:

Working in multidisplinary teams was the highlight. Working with interesting people to achieve results. The occasional free lunch from Vendor meetings was quite enjoyable too.
Pros
the people, open discussions, location
Cons
quiet times

A typical day at work consisted of reviewing timecards and submitting for approval, or if rejected, chasing amended timecards. Entering invoices and submitted them for approval. Contacting the client or Subcontractor to discuss any invoicing discrepancies. I also had to assist with manipulating Excel spread sheets.
In my time with Ausenco, I learnt how to process the Client's monthly invoices, which was a week long process. I also learnt how to use the systems that they used.

The hardest part of the job was the monthly Client invoicing.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working closely with the team that I was with and being able to go to site to train everyone on a new system that was implemented.
Pros
Being able to start and finish work early. Learning new things every day
Cons
Month End was always stressful and required long hours

Ausenco was a very average company to work for, quite flexible
as long as you did your hours and expected you to work long hours

when required. They offered training when necessary.

Most people working there were friendly and helpful.

Perth office is ceasing to be a divison and will be managed by

Brisbane office - not sure how this is going to work effectively
