Great opportunity to work on such a big and complex project

Given the project's complex nature of having multiple contractors, it was a great learning and working experience. I was able to successfully keep the processes up-to date, review drawings and schedules, as well as keep the quality as per the standards with the help of the technical team.

Pros

Good personnel

Cons

Long hours, Rough terrains, Poor work environment

Good Benefits and Reward system but poor advancement opportunities.

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

Great company to work with

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.

Overview

Large corporation with corporate mentality good and bad. the local GCC head office is based in Abu Dhabi but the major decisions and direction come from USA which can cause slowing down of decision making process. The company is large and cannot take on a lot of interesting design projects especially architecture which is not the main company driver which is Engineering.

Pros

High number of sprecialists

Cons

heavy workload

Qualified/Unsafe

Best place for an engineer to improve themselves proffesionally. In the other hand, with the help of the market, you never feel safe with continuity of the work.

Pros

Good Income

Cons

Urgent Projects

Not ideal place for carer development due to management in most recent 2 years

No opportunity for the existing hardworking employees, professional - western work culture need to be re-instated as it was two / three years ago. More opportunity to be given existing western employees based on their experience in AECOM

Multicultural, Employee oriented and Ergonomic work conditions.

I joined AECOM as a young yet responsible HR coordinator for one of the most prestigious project teams at the time. I worked with colleagues from various backgrounds and nationalities. Diversity was indeed at its best at AECOM. I worked with four different managers during my tenure at AECOM who were very accommodating, resourceful for my developmental needs and true leaders. The work culture was truly positive and engaging. My work targets were always SMART! I learned many life skills, developed my personality and also was able to grow a great deal in terms of career. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with employees and being their first point of contact for HR queries. AECOM prepared me well for the leadership skills I needed in my future career.

Pros

Employee engagement activities, great colleagues
