Very stressful and demanding environment. Being in this environment ahs enabled me to manage time more efficiently and achieving more deliverables, Management approach for career advancement is very biased and is centred on BEE status and non recognition of individual achievements. Workplace culture is excellent. Failing to get recognition for individual efforts and achievements. I can honestly say that I have gained recognition in both the private and government sector and now value the expertise and knowledge gained over the years having worked for this company.


Good pension and medical aid + 13th cheque


Tight deadlines, stressful but competetive

Toxic and hostile working environment

Working for Aecom SA was amazing in the first year of my career and they teach alot and the technology is also advanced.However, the environment is hostile as there is no room for growth and also no increases or/and bonuses. Working over time without pay is also a normal thing. There’s alot of favoritism aswel, if you are the bosses pet you are good.


Great projects, flexible, always in line with current technologies


Unpaid overtime, No bonuses and increases

Below average

Favoritism and inequality very evident. No real chance of advancement unless you are a directors pet. Salary and benefits are really bad. No bonuses at all and little to no annual increases either. Overtime is a norm with no overtime payment. Complete disregard for employees with inhumane and insensitive ways about them in management and HR.

productive, and comfortable workspace

the office was very welcoming and everyone was nice. everyone worked well in team projects. we had meetings and they were very productive and worth while. i've learnt alot from every individual in the company. i helped each employee with there work and gave me a broader understanding in the construction industry that i didn't get in lecture rooms. the hardest part was making sure i dont make a mistake and that the pressure was huge when it came to pricing and properly quantifying bill of quantities and making sure there were no errors, since my work is being trusted. the most enjoyable part is when they trust you with work and you do it and its all correct and the feeling that now they can trust you was the very enjoyable, also the moments we go out for our personal breaks or lunch time. i've learnt alot from quantifying a BOQ, site measurements, interim valuations,and etc.


small office, so we can all communicate with each other


lots of errands

Productive and Healthy working environment

AECOM is a good company but the salary/benefit was a bit of a disadvantage for me. It was productive and the environment was healthy. It was easy to settle as the people are welcoming.

Productive, Fun and Supportive

We start work at 8am, most Mondays we have a resource meeting to talk about the week and what needs to be done in the week. Management is always giving advice and makes working at AECOM pleasant. My co-workers are extremely supportive and caring. We are more like a family in the office and we all very close. We do a lot of team building and sport activities together. The hardest part of my job is working long hours in the retail sector but i am grateful for the experience. I really enjoy working and going for training to better myself. I learn something new every week and I find the retail sector extremely interesting. It take a lot of hard work and long hours but the experience is worth it all.

Fortune 500 company,great learning experience

I really was impressed by the staff,they are soooo professional and willing to help,their commitment,and passion for the company.Aecom is a great brand and I tell my family and friends that it is a company I thought only existed in my dreams and I was amazed being there.There are alot of opportunities to grow and I love that management emphasizes education and they are motivators as well and everyone treats each person with deep respect. I had to work in assisting with measurements,linking BOQ estimates,site meeting ,assisting with tender adjudication,there is alot but it was a challenge to juggle many things in one time but I greatful I tried my best to meet those tasks and challenges.


exposure and growth, end of the year function


wish my 4 month contract to be renewed
