Good Benefits and Reward system but poor advancement opportunities.
Graduate Project Control Engineer (Former Employee) –  Abu DhabiAugust 7, 2018
Although, the salary/benefits are good, job security is low as it depends on projects. In addition, the advancement is slow and is a better place to solidify your position and then apply outside for a higher position.
Pros
Good Lunch Menus, great benefits
Cons
Slow advancement, no overtime, low mentorship program

Great company to work with
Project Architect (Former Employee) –  Abu DhabiMay 29, 2018
I would describe a typical day at work to be active, due to coordination meetings and verification of all current/ updated changes in the project design.
I have learned to practice a lot of multi-tasking and dealing with multi-racial or multi-nationals at work and with our clients, consultants, contractors and suppliers.
As a Project Architect, I have managed to acquire better people skills, increased patience and understanding in dealing with each member of the team.
The hardest part of the job is the delay of information, uncooperative team member, too many design changes/ suggestions and impossible deadlines.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when you have delivered the project design or the building itself.

Overview
manager Buildings Division (Former Employee) –  Abu DhabiMay 14, 2018
Large corporation with corporate mentality good and bad. the local GCC head office is based in Abu Dhabi but the major decisions and direction come from USA which can cause slowing down of decision making process. The company is large and cannot take on a lot of interesting design projects especially architecture which is not the main company driver which is Engineering.
Pros
High number of sprecialists
Cons
heavy workload

No opportunity for the existing hardworking employees, professional - western work culture need to be re-instated as it was two / three years ago. More opportunity to be given existing western employees based on their experience in AECOM

Learning & Development Specialist (Former Employee) –  Abu DhabiOctober 8, 2017
I joined AECOM as a young yet responsible HR coordinator for one of the most prestigious project teams at the time. I worked with colleagues from various backgrounds and nationalities. Diversity was indeed at its best at AECOM. I worked with four different managers during my tenure at AECOM who were very accommodating, resourceful for my developmental needs and true leaders. The work culture was truly positive and engaging. My work targets were always SMART! I learned many life skills, developed my personality and also was able to grow a great deal in terms of career. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with employees and being their first point of contact for HR queries. AECOM prepared me well for the leadership skills I needed in my future career.
Pros
Employee engagement activities, great colleagues
