Project Architect (Former Employee) – Abu Dhabi – May 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.
productive. good relations between employees. job is not guaranteed.
made work orders to the contractor (Former Employee) – Abu Dhabi – August 8, 2019
Hard working for exact project performing. and enable the client to follow up the work easily. I learned how to use computer for effective project management. High level of workplace culture. Climate in United Arab Emirates mainly hot, also clients are very strict. Eating with colleagues is the most enjoyable part of the job.
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 !
