Featured Review

Former Freelancer - BIM/CADD Manager

I worked at AECOM for more than 5 years

Pros

AECOM wins lots of large prestigious projects due to their size and reputation.

Cons

As with any very large company, sometimes the bureaucracy can be stifling.

Advice to Management

Regional level management should have more control over their own business. What works in one region or country, can create problems for others.

I worked at Thiess

Pros

Opportunity for personal growth and development The chance to diversify your skill set and develop a broad scope of knowledge

Cons

The usual " purple circle" mentality, though less than some places as at least you get the chance to speak your mind

Advice to Management

Don't let valuable personal slip through the cracks, put aside personal differences once and for all
