I worked at AECOM

Pros

fairness during hiring process; willing to provide younger professionals the opportunity to work; willing to provide salary matches, raises, and counter-offers

Cons

not much interaction between project managers or team leads and their employees; HR department is a joke - takes forever to get in touch and receive answers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Good job overall, hard to complain aside from the HR department - seriously, no one answers their phone, and problems seemed to rarely be resolved...

No opinion of CEO

    Better understand the skill sets of employees and where they may be able to contribute on various contracts.

    Bureaucracy at its worst with elephants rampaging the company with their egos, greed and weights

    I have been working at AECOM

    Pros

    Some technically brilliant mid level experts from the companies it has aquired,

    Cons

    Management has no real understanding on the project execution, with some studies around the world being of very poor quality. The company keeps downsizing and throwing ut propla , while at the same time getting some useless managers from outside at enormous salaries. One AECOM slogan has no real meaning with no proper integration of the diverse companies AECOM has aquired, so there are groups within companies within AECOM entities.
