Typing - everyday was different
Back Up Receptionist (Former Employee), Newmarket, NJuly 25, 2014
Only two of us in the Central Publishing Bureau department consists of 300 staff. It is now called AECOM where during my employment it was called "Meritec". An engineering consultants where they bid for big jobs throughout the world, and my job was to collate and typing their proposas with the deadline. Organisational skills comes in to play and prioritising can be a deman. I enjoyed it most because I learnt the engineering jargon.

co-workers were a mix of experienced aviation mechanics to fraudulent want to be mechanics because they copied and pasted an A&P brochure to their resume!

Great place to work if you don't mind job instability and travel
Other (Former Employee), Richmond, VAApril 24, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: constant layoffs. constant rumors about who will be laid off next.
AECOM requires that employees remain billable to clients as much as possible. If you aren't billable to a client, threats get made against your job. People are constantly getting let go because they had no billable work. Otherwise it is a great place to work. Great co-workers, management is patient and friendly, lots of ways to get involved in the community, nice office atmosphere.
