Productive company.

At the outset, it should be noted that AECOM is a giant enterprise of high professional quality. The working environment and the nature of projects gives you a good opportunity to demonstrate and refine your possibilities and to learn at the same time without content with your expertise.

Great company

I worked for the proposals and pricing teams and I grew from a junior engineer to a bid manager. I really recommend AECOM for all graduates aspiring to be leaders of the industry.

Lack of Quality Systems and Poor Internal Auditing

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 !

The gold standard in how a company should be ran

I loved working here especially in hindsight after leaving and working for smaller government contractors and commercial companies. This company cares about their employees and encourage everyone to work on themselves for a better future.

not a good place to work

Aecom is the worst company in the middle east, they can terminate people any time and job security is not there. any time u can be hired or fired. Depends on your manager you will get work and not on your performance.
