    I worked at Associated Engineering full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company, great people, great projects

    Cons

    Some of the managers are unskilled for the position they have. They seem like they are drowning. Not the most accommodated company to female engineers

    I worked at Associated Engineering full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Short commute (your results may vary)

    Cons

    Under-staffed & over-worked, for the electrical department at least. Management will not hire enough experienced engineers, so they just work the ones they have to death (because you're salaried, so that's cheap yeah?) And don't expect to be allowed out of the office, its office bound paperwork only I'm afraid.

    Current Employee - Mechanical Engineer in Vancouver, BC

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Associated Engineering full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great people, sometimes interesting projects. It's a good culture which means that I never dread going to work. For the most part, the work-life balance is pretty good.

    Cons

    Like any engineering consulting firm, there are times you have to work crazy hours, but for me that has been relatively rare. The company is risk-averse as well, which means very little innovation, but you do learn a lot about how things are done in the real world.

    I worked at Associated Engineering full-time

    Pros

    There were many opportunities to work overtime. Many staff were experienced and had been at the company for a long time. Willing to give an opportunity to fresh grads in need of experience.

    Cons

    Management often seemed disconnected from the staff. It was sometimes not optional to work excessive overtime, and this was not disclosed during the interview process.

    I worked at Associated Engineering full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Like most every consulting company, there are still good people that work there. Average benefits.

    Cons

    Typical old-school consulting company with no apparent interest in modern management philosophies. Management regularly fails in supporting projects by stripping project budgets to fund unnecessarily complex management systems. A great benefit to AE executives, but not to employees who suffer the additional pressure of the lack of project-level resources, or customers who's product suffers as a result.
