AECOM Middle East is allergic to any kind and any forms of corruption, and because of this, they do not tolerate any kind of unfair treatment specially to OT Pay. Also, your career development is purely based on your performance and projects are always new at an average rate of every 3 months

Lack of Quality Systems and Poor Internal Auditing
Assistant Resident Engineer (Former Employee) –  DubaiAugust 1, 2019
In AECOM Middle East you can easily remark a disconnected Operating System in managing both the design and executing of construction projects, with an obvious farness from applying any quality systems or internal standard auditing, but only a client-oriented managing of the human resources and engineering calibers.

In spite of extremely unprofessional ways of evaluating the employees, non-utilizing of their capabilities and dozens of fake forms and charts who HR bombarding the staff with, but by only using your personal connections you can keep securing your seat inside AECOM ME.

It's a fact in AECOM that nobody cares about your professionalism nor your cleverness. It's all about how much the Client pays to them for hiring you !

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
