Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), New York, NY – April 18, 2013
My job duties at AECOM includes checking supplies inventory,printing and binding proposals for clients, receive and ship daily mail. I learned a lot at AECOM, and would like to grow and expand my abilities further. I feel that AECOM would not help me get there due to many changes hapenning within the organization. I get along very well with all of my – more... co workers. The most enjoyable part of my job is having a coffee break with my coworkers. The hardest part of my job is when management don't communicate effectively. – less
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee), ENGLAND – April 10, 2013
Pros: good benefts package and some nice people there
Cons: everything else!
Faber Maunsell was taken over by AECOM a number of years ago and the company went downhill from then on wards.
Managers used to be sociable people but now they are under so much pressure to get the numbers right for the US side of the company they live in constant fear of being sacked. This creates a lot of stress in the office and has led to some – more... managers bullying thier workers. – less
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), New York, NY – April 2, 2013
Pros: medical 401, life insurance, luncheons
Cons: short longevity of projects, miscommunication, unnecessary physical mandatory workshops
Aecom is one of the best companies on this planet. I hear and read about account being won by Aecom all the time via email. I am satisfied with the company in general but I do think at time that their clientele ask or demand the impossible from whomever they are in partnership with because at times It always a constant dispute on how ethic and arrangements – more... are handled.
At typical day at AECOM is usually fine and productive but again the other companies that Aecom cohort with are usually unproductive and egomatic. Not on a daily work week but on times within the calendar year it can be a little unedged with working with other employees from other companies. My Aecom co workers are workable,dependable and throrough on task that need to be done.
Co workers are fine to work with but I do think that some of them needs to be flexible to their working environment whenvever working at other offices instead of being so one tracked on how their home branches are commendable to them.
The Hardest part of the job to me is just having a good rapport with everybody within Aecom and out of Aecom. We are all on the same team and lack of camaraderie should be instituted.
The most enjoyable part of the time are holidays towards the end of the year aka thanksgiving/christmas. The festivities the vacationing, the food, the parties and etc is something that is well earn through out the entire year. – less
LISMX Supervisor (Current Employee), afghanistan – March 24, 2013
Pros: very good team
Because i currently work with the company in afghanistan, It makes for no home life. The benefits im not sure of because you cant go to the doctors office here. I feel there is room for quick advancement if you show that you are the best and the brightest.
