    AECOM was a great place to intern as the managers are extremely accessible.

    Corporate Communications (Former Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe office environment is engaging and active. They value work/life balance. Since AECOM is such a major player in multiple industries, you work on meaningful projects.

    ConsAs with any large company, you never know whom you'll be working with on a weekly basis. Fortunately there is a strong culture, but collaboration could be more streamlined.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
