For the people that decided to Stay with Aecom how is it going?

There were a lot of people in IT that didn't know how to do their job. The funny thing is most of them are still there just under a different company. The ones who were good, found better companies to work for.
I suspect a lot of IT staff have fake degrees since IT is a disaster. There is an IT woman who doesn't know how to troubleshoot anything and she still has her job.
Who got cut. No names just positions?
AECOM cut some retained IT staff yesterday. Not much explanation provided to those people, they have until 12/01. My best guess is that someone wanted to be seen as doing something about issues and cut staff since they didn't know what to do.
Systems starting to fail now as IBM don't have the knowledge to maintain them and aecom don't have the staff to manage IBM.
AECOM are now spending thousands on contractors just to attempt to keep the lights on, and surprise surprise it's all through capper's best mates company. This place is a joke.
I left a while ago, but from what I hear from my contacts it is going exactly as most of us expected. But hey at least they saved some money in the near term. I would suspect that those involved in approving the decision will find a scapegoat to take the fall for what seems to be a mess in the making.
The lying directors have massively underestimated the task of managing IBM. We are going to grind to a halt soon. I'll give it another 3 months.
What do you mean staying at AECOM. No One is staying at AECOM except the people who lied to us. Some have stayed on to join a 3rd Party supplier so you should be asking them how it is going. Also im guessing you left the company so why are you interested in the proceedings at AECOM. But in my guess. i can't imagine it is going well.
