The most useful review selected by Indeed
Working at AECOM made me excel in so many ways, and i've learned a lot of software like revit, microstation and now i am learning civil 3d. I also got exposure to work not only in dry utilities but most of the time, i assist in doing some other services like wet networks, road and bridges and building project.

Work place is good but stressful

Not balance in term of working task. Some are getting sick, your going to work to the limit everytime theres upcoming submission, no support from the line manager. You work in your own very hard the credit was only for the manager.

productive, discipline and silent workplace

I had the privilege to work with some fantastic and talented individuals in culturally diverse environments in AECOM. I have gained extensive experience working on various large scale projects. My job responsibilities included preparing scale drawings, layouts, longitudinal cross sections, formwork and reinforcement details, pier and foundation details, superstructure and culverts details. In addition, I have worked on a number of buildings projects in which I prepared drawings for marina substations, MMR room, pump station, service building, security building etc...

Production team is scarce, managers are too many

There is too many managers, some of which are graduates that finished their internship and suddenly became managers. Sonetimes unexperienced and production teams are put in danger of losing their jobs.


Free insurance for dependents


Big overhead cost shouldered by client
