    I have been working at AECOM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    AECOM has quickly become a world class company, known for it's high level of quality work and the top notch staff. The company has come a long way from being a holding company (with 30+ operating companies all operating on their own). The decision to consolidate into one global firm was the best thing we could have done. It created a rough road with some confusion and uncertainty resulting in our losing some of our team members, but we've come through that tough time with flying colors! AECOM has successfully transitioned into one of the best companies for which to work in the world! AECOM is now winning some of the biggest projects because we have the most creative problem solvers!

    Cons

    The transition into one global company is on the back end of being complete, but still not completely done. There is still some process fine tuning and staffing re-organization that can create some dark clouds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing! For such a big company they senior team listens and evolves with new information every day. AECOM employees are a very talented and proud group!

    I worked at AECOM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I learned a great deal while working here. Advancement opportunities and mentoring was excellent. The people were the best part and made it so I wanted to come to work everyday. I grew a great deal professionally and was exposed to all aspects of the international development process.

    Cons

    Expect long hours and quick turnarounds. This is a fast paced environment, which means 60+ hours a week depending on the position you are in. Some people find this invigorating, others find that work is their life. It really depends on the person you are and what you want out of a career.
