    The people. I love the team and upper management support that I am surrounded by.

    Cubicle jobs can get very repetitive and tiring at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would try treating all of your employees more fairly and on the same scale. SOme get treated more fairly than others and it's definitely noticed by everyone.

    Former Intern - Water/Wastewater Intern in Dallas, TX

    I worked at AECOM as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Attentive, friendly office environment with a tight knit culture. As an intern, I was involved on five or six projects and was never forgotten. Every day was a new learning experience as opposed to just being the "CAD markup guy."

    Cons

    The office seemed to be losing it's great engineers to other companies due to lack of career mobility and compensation/benefits. If you have a good thing going, why let it slip away?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay the man.

    Pros

    Well organized system of designers and construction professionals, with lots of resources.

    Cons

    None so far. It hasn't really been long enough to get a sense of the bad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Introductions could be more helpful in the beginning if facilitated through a new hire seminar.

  10. Aecom was a contractor in the middle East; I loved the people, the pay and the contract I was on.

    I worked at AECOM full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The overseas contract I was on provided a hard structure to live in, unlike my contract in Afghanistan with XXX. There was a grab-n-go and bedding was provided. If you did your job well, all was good; all was good with me.

    Cons

    Due to circumstances of a drawback, I was RIF'ed at 8 months, but still received a prorated bonus, so even the con was a plus.

    Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Calgary, AB (Canada)

    I have been working at AECOM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Incredible projects, the very talent staff and true global experience and reach. Many talk of being global few achieve it. AECOM is a global powerhouse that attracts the best and brightest.

    Cons

    Change is a constant. Some thrive and others never do. Not a company if you like to think parochially and you cannot collaborate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Drive shareholder value, keep explaining the strategy and how staff can contribute and staff alignment will be achieved
