    Pros

    I have enjoyed almost 8 years working with AECOM in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Despite the workload and challenges I was happy working with everyone in the office. If only me and my family hadn't gone to Canada to migrate I would have still be working for AECOM.

    Cons

    There can a time that the workload was too much as manpower was not enough. Previous executives who handled me between August 2007 to January 2011 didn't follow the contract that I have signed as an executive assistant which became a reason for not having my salary increased.

    Pros

    Limitless opportunities to grow. AECOM is experiencing high profit years with more and more sites opening internationally.

    Cons

    Big company with many different industries all under the same canopy, so it feels impersonal. There are many changes to benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Opportunity to help build and grow with AECOM. We are still integrating and coming together as one company. For those that like to be a part of building something amazing- there are tremendous opportunities.

    Cons

    If you do not like change- you might not like it here. If you were part of a smaller company that was acquired, you might not like the large Fortune 500 company we are today.

    Advice to Management

    Looking forward to management changes with our new CEO.

    Pros

    Great experience in the field, hands on learning, a lot of responsibility right off the bat. Great resources in the office as well, very helpful with making you comfortable in the cubicle (if that's possible), and in general very helpful nice people work here. Great benefits and rewarding work.

    Cons

    Having to constantly record your hours for every little thing that you do. A lot of overtime, stressful work.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of time is wasted recording project-based hours for payment. Instead, encourage strong supervisor relationships with the employees.

    Treat employees as people instead of a number
