I have been working at AECOM

Pros

free coffee and tea. They want to streamline everything to digital, so no space is wasted on hard files. They have consistent work.

Cons

They plan work spaces that cram too many employees together. They put more value on cutting costs than showing appreciation for their employees.

Every corporate decision shows they don't really care about their employees ( which leads to decreased morale) . They just want to save money in the smallest possible way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Manage salary increases for hard work based on changes in a cost-of-living index. Design work environments where people actually want to work there and be creative. AECOM can't be a Google by designing/planning offices in the manner they do. I can't imagine why talented leaders/ future visionaries would stay at this company long-term.

    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

    Was allowed to use expertise and make decisions without micromanagement.
    Quality efforts were rewarded.

    Better understand the skill sets of employees and where they may be able to contribute on various contracts.
    Acknowledge contributions made by staff.
