    Challenging

    Senior Project Manager (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsGreat opportunities, diverse range of projects, great people to work with for the most part. Management in the field very concerned about well being of the rank and file. Probably one of the best companies I have ever worked for.

    ConsAll great/good companies have their shortcomings. This one less than most. I can't really complain. If you're looking for a company with absolutely no issues whatsoever, good luck finding Camelot.

    Dubai (United Arab Emirates)

    ProsAECOM is a great place for learning and nurtures talent from the grass root level.

    AECOM is an amazing company!

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsOpportunity to help build and grow with AECOM. We are still integrating and coming together as one company. For those that like to be a part of building something amazing- there are tremendous opportunities.

    ConsIf you do not like change- you might not like it here. If you were part of a smaller company that was acquired, you might not like the large Fortune 500 company we are today.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLooking forward to management changes with our new CEO.

    Aside from overhead management overload, this company was excellent to work for.

    Geologist I (Former Employee)
    Fort Collins, CO

    ProsGreat experience in the field, hands on learning, a lot of responsibility right off the bat. Great resources in the office as well, very helpful with making you comfortable in the cubicle (if that's possible), and in general very helpful nice people work here. Great benefits and rewarding work.

    ConsHaving to constantly record your hours for every little thing that you do. A lot of overtime, stressful work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA lot of time is wasted recording project-based hours for payment. Instead, encourage strong supervisor relationships with the employees.
