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.
Atmospheric Manager (Current Employee), Afghanistan – March 1, 2013
A typical day at works varies depending on where you're assigned. You may be on a large base or even a small village, so if you're seeking a challenge it's a good place. Middle management tends to be filled with good, hard working, and grounded people that look out for those underneath them. Upper management is sadly a counter-productive and inefficient – more... mess that frustrates and impedes progress. The hardest part of the job is that fact that you are deployed for 6 months before your first 2 week vacation. Being away from your family is the most difficult part. The best part of the job is the privilege of getting to work with some phenomenal members of the military and the government. You truly get to challenge your physical and mental fortitude in an extremely austere environment. At the end of the day you actually have a sense of accomplishment. – less
