Tishman Construction Corporation, the construction division of the company, was sold to AECOM in 2010.
A former employee said this in a review: "Working at Tishman was a bad experience. As with any general contractor you expect to work long hours. There is a not a good team environment. Management is not supportive to allow employees to grow and fulfill different duties and take on more responsibility".

Current Employee - Project Accountant says"I have been working at AECOM Tishman full-time for more than 5 years Cons: terrible and I mean terrible upper management and work environment. There is one guy that has over 100 direct reports. There is no employee engagement or real feeling of importance in your work. It is unfortunate but there are no noteworthy perks as of late 2016 and the benefits get worse every year. I would caution to stay away. overall take away: VERY POOR MANAGEMENT"

Current Employee - Management says"I have been working at AECOM Tishman full-time for more than 10 years Cons: There is excessive tension between VP's and between the younger and older employees. Many of the young professionals are in the habit of not fostering the "team" component in managing projects. I have heard senior management refer to such employees as barracudas"
Former Employee - Assistant Project Manager says"I worked at AECOM Tishman full-time for more than 3 years Cons: No backlog, no clear career progression, nepotism (lots of this, everyone is related to or is a "friend" of the executive vp...), hired a lot of field staff that have little to no experience (again nepotism, many of them are friends or relatives of someone higher up on the food chain)."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at AECOM Tishman full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Typical corporate culture; agressive acquisition"
Patrol officer/Fire Guard (Current Employee) says"I enjoyed working here at one time. Lately the environment in the workplace is unhealthy and offers no room for advancement unless you are an inside reference of someone in an authoritative position. Cons: everything"
Security Guard (Former Employee) says"typical day be there 45 to get ready shoes shined got your posts from your supervisors good luck on that day most of the day you got posts for the day Cons: very short breaks"
Security Guard (Current Employee) says"Working at Tishman Speyer can be very stressful. The whole management team is corrupt. Only people that are relatives to the management team is able to get promoted. Supervisors will look for any reason to bother you. If the management team doesn’t like you, they will post you at places you feel Cons: Absolutely everything is and about this place"
Security Officer (Former Employee) says"Easily put...unless you kiss butt to an extreme or related to someone you will end up stuck in the worst shift until you choose to leave. No night differential. Horrible management. Sub par benefits. Too many egos to build any kind of chemistry. One of the absolute worst run places to work for. Stay far away. Cons: Poor culture. Poor leadership. Way too political."
Controller (Former Employee) says"I was hired for an accounting position. Since the start there was no formal training and a bunch of manuals were thrown on my desk and you were expected to hit the ground running. Cons: No real direction from senior management and not a laid back atmosphere"
Handyman/Porter (Current Employee) says"At 200 park ave Metlife Building its a toxic work envirment. Forepersons favor people who buy them gifts and alcoohol, grops of drunk people together against good workers. And if they try to say something they put them out."
Client Service Manager (Former Employee) says"This company is the worst I've ever worked for. There is no flexibility, no teamwork, no advancement, and extremely male dominated seniority. The softwares they use are outdated and save no time and are extremely frustrating to use. There is not enough work to keep busy and no training whatsoever. Avoid Tishman."
Security Guard Officer (Former Employee) says"Your co workers are sleeping on post. Paid detail is a racist. Its all a conspiracy their. When i experienced security breech. They bought the people free entry. They never was search because nobody was on post but me. They are not doing their jobs. Im a world trade center survivor. Im not being sujected to that"
Protection Officer (Former Employee) says"I started working at Rockefeller Center for the holiday season 2015. The pay was great at the time but it’s actually gone down since then. No health/dental/union benefits unless you become a permanent guard and this doesn’t happen unless you: 1) do loads of overtime, 2) are related to someone working there(nepotism) and or 3) one of the higher ups really likes you. You will be standing for hours on end and most of the time it’s outside during the winter months."
Senior Controller (Current Employee) says"When I first began my tenure at Tishman Speyer it was at a growing subsidiary of the company. It was the perfect work environment as it had a small company atmosphere, with large company benefits. Cons: lack of growth opportunities, reduction in benefits, poor increases, overall culture"
Engineer (Current Employee) says"Overall good company to get your foot in the door. Typical day of work consists of tightening up loose ends left by daytime staff. Cons: No Advancement"
Security Officer (Former Employee) says"Horrible staff, poor organization, sometimes they would have people working in areas without the propper certificates of fitness or licences. Bad human resources staff"
Property Controller (Former Employee) says"11-12 hour work day year round, cutthroat managers, great benefits and fair pay. Work experience is from auditors from Big 6 firms and very segregated."
Patrol Officer (Former Employee) says"This place is overall much better and organized than other security jobs. Aside from that I started to feel like a robot that was constantly being watched. Management is more concerned about what the guards are doing rather than the actual security of the complex. Numerous guards have made suggestions to improve weak areas, but we're told it's not in the budget. Upper management cares more about the place being clean and the gardens being changed every other week. The security department is looked at as the lowest of human beings. Supervisors get paid heaps of money to do nothing. Much of managements work falls on their control center too. Cons: Hostile environment, no advancement, & blackballing"
Executive Assistant, The Zo Assist (Former Employee) says"Tishman Speyer gives you a lot of tools to succeed and I really liked the company. The Zo Assist program was a "start up" under the umbrella of Tishman Speyer. Cons: Lack of direction, manager was too busy to accurately train, was a "figure it out" job, which leaves a lot of room for error."
Corporate Tax Analysis Temp (Former Employee) says"When I came in as an tax intern, the tax department was being outsource to the big four. In a typical day, I would call the federal/state department to resolve any lean or amount due the company has."
Receptionist (Former Employee) says"loved working in an environments with a great staff and support. gained a lot of experience with customer service and working with tourist. the staff and management team took very good care of me"
Security Guard (Current Employee) says"Security for Tishman Speyer is very confusing times between the employees and management. They feel like they are never on your side towards anything beneficial. The supervisors there are actually ok. They're fair with decisions at the work place. Cons: Bad management. No room for improvements"
Protection Officer (Former Employee) says"Immediately following my graduation from high school, I began working as a protection officer at Rockefeller Center in New York City. Working full-time between my college semesters, I was able to gain meaningful experience protecting one of the busiest tourist destinations in the world. The position allowed me to work with individuals ranging in ages from 18 to 60+, providing me an avenue to work with multiple walks of life from a young age. Cons: Mind numbing work, little room for advancement, work culture"
Gerente de manutenção Predial (Former Employee) says"empresa boa porem muito burocrática e engessada, não da condições para o profissional se desenvolver."
Yulia Heaton says"Overpriced products of questionable quality. Initially I was delighted to buy a pair of tracking boots worth £190 thinking it to be an investment for a few years of use. I used to recommend these shoes to others and both my husband and one of my bodywork clients started to purchase shoes from Vivobarefoot. Both had issues with various pairs in the past, which were replaced by the Company without many questions. When the soles on my pair of trackIng boots started to come away from the shoes, I contacted the customer service. It took a while to receive a reply, but when it came, it offered a link to show glue and an offer of 20% of the price back! Bear in mind the shoes were barely 18 months old and only lightly worn in colder season. I responded that I would like them replaced and never heard from the company since. I also bought a pair of sandals last year, which are having a similar problem with the soles. If I wanted to buy a pair of shoes to glue back together again after light use, I wouldn’t pay hundreds of pounds for them. In short - DON’T BOTHER wasting your money. Other barefoot makes will cost less, last longer and you won’t need to wait forever for a reply, nor would you be told to buy some glue to put them right again."
customer says"Sorry but I returned some shoes that were too big several weeks ago and have had no confirmation of anything - even if they have received the boots. They cost me a lot of money. I have sent emails asking for some information on my order and no response."
customer says"bad customer service - no tracking number provided"
Steve says"Insoles slipping from the very first time I wore them. Unable to wear for more than 15 minutes before having to adjust the insoles. Not what I’d expect for shoes that cost £120. On the plus side, they look great"
