Higher management is very professional
Structure Inspector (Current Employee) –  Jabel Ali, DubaiDecember 7, 2019
Higher management is very professional. Company policies are employee oriented. My salary is low because my designation is Inspector here, else salaries are comparable to other market competitors.
Overall a great organisation.

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 !

Excellent employer
(Associate Director Water and Wastewater) UAE (Former Employee) –  Abu DhabiAugust 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.

AECOM is the best consultant globally
Senior Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Abu DhabiJuly 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.
Pros
long career of 7 years, joined in 2010 as Assist PM and then promoted to PM 2012 and then Sr. PM in 2013
Cons
consultant jobs are usually short term till the project lasts, gives fear of job search and changes, document control system is inadequate

For those who want to work in a challenging environment
Senior CAD Manager (Former Employee) –  Abu DhabiNovember 8, 2016
A well diversified company with a multi-cultural environment and interdisciplinary business expertise such as architectural design, landscape, infrastructure, project management, you name it!

They provide seminars for their employees according to the latest industry standards. Big companies such as AECOM needs people who are flexible and familiar in working with a corporate environment. I enjoyed providing them with best practice in CAD standards, and architectural sheet arrangement as well as introducing a unique coding system for each type of project. I also helped the HR department in hiring, and CAD skill-testing its new members.

It has been a pleasure being a part of such a vast team.
Pros
in-house canteen, friendly people, good environment for learning
Cons
some tend to have a hierarchy mentality
