(Associate Director Water and Wastewater) UAE (Former Employee) – Abu Dhabi – August 1, 2017
Good working environment, challenging and satisfying engineering practices.
I have learnt a lot in terms of tendering for consultancy services works with different clients, governmental and private sector including land developers.
I have learnt the AECOM management practices way and graduated from their own PM courses. They have good managers who were and still are running the company in UAE very successfully.
The hardest part was the even changing activities of AECOM acquiring lots of other companies as part of the growth plan. You need to be very flexible and understanding for the ever changing culture as part of change adjustments.
I enjoyed the end of year parties, the team that worked with me and their support was very enjoying and found it self esteem rewarding.

Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) – Abu Dhabi – July 14, 2017
AECOM is fantastic place to work especially noting that consulting jobs are short term ones, typical day at work involves ensuring the deliverables are issued, clients calls on various issues are attended to, ensure the budget is not exceeded. management reporting has to be done monthly basis using specialised software such as APIC or EPM. Variation order process is an ongoing thing in some form on daily basis. keep an eye on regular follow ups. hardest part of the job is the internal document control system which is extremely week and th current system has to be scrapped.
long career of 7 years, joined in 2010 as Assist PM and then promoted to PM 2012 and then Sr. PM in 2013
consultant jobs are usually short term till the project lasts, gives fear of job search and changes, document control system is inadequate

It was an excellent experience to work with AECOM, although it was a project based job and I had to leave the company because of limited contract. I would like to join AECOM again if I get an opportunity.

Head of Architecture (Former Employee) – Abu Dhabi, AE – March 7, 2017
I liked it there but they require you to retire the year you turn 65. If you've been there for a while, they keep you on until the month before you turn 66. If you're essential to a project or are key to keeping clients, they'll hire you as a consultant for another two to three years.
