Rewarding and supportive

Lots of opportunities for growth. Can be demanding at times. Supportive and understanding management. Working with highly competent colleagues. Opportunities for leadership as well as senior people to help mentor me.

I learn of lot of technical application

I have learned to be precised and accurate when executing a drawing. The management encouraged absoulate accuracy and double checking.The work place was fantastic, we help each other if there is a problem.The most enjoyable aspect is their willingness to inter connect different culture. We had morning tea every working days to induced cooperation amongst the different ranks .


Encouraged good work ethics


There is a shortage of professinal experienced seniors

Strong growth in recent years appears to have stretched the quality of management. I was disheartened by the dated culture; racism, sexism and Islamophobia was present after hours. Market rate payments.

Awful Environment

Backstabbing, Political, managers screw you over wherever they can, limit your career advancement. As a result this culture cascades down all the way and everyone is just at each other. There is limited team environment. Some people are lovely but you can only survive if you are a narcissist, good at playing political games, come from an anglo saxon privileged private school background - that is the only way you can be in the "in crowd". Sad that this is the case as they have some great iconic projects. I have also worked alongside AECOM where I was the Client and very similar "arrogant" attitude. The only plus sign of working there is the benefits and having the name on your CV.


Benefits - Fruit, Everyday rewards


Backstabbing, awful culture. Long hours and political games.

Great working environment

The reason I stayed at this organisation (as URS) was because they looked after you so much. Everyone was so friendly and it was a great place to work most days. Great managers and supporting HR.


Supportive and safe working environment


At times some people could take advantage of the supportive managers which can be frustrating

busy but productive workplace

every day was always busy at AECOM, which I like. I prefer to be very busy and I function with more efficiency when busy. Things learned would be time management and improved organisation. AECOM have supportive management and there is a healthy culture alive in the office, hence there is a friendly atmosphere of team workmanship amongst the co-workers. the job was busy and demanding , but I would not say that there was anything difficult about the job I had, I loved it. the most enjoyable was probably the fact that there was great team work and a friendly atmosphere in which to work, it certainly made life easier when the job got demanding.


AECOM offered great employee benefits

Leading Global Company with Happy Culture

Really enjoyed working for AECOM until the crunch came when it felt a little like it was floundering without a plan. I would happily work for AECOM again, as it felt like they looked after you and that you were part of something big.


Salaries reasonable, benefits good, culture is positive and nurturing


Unstable in current market, unclear business strategy
