I worked at AECOM part-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The AECOM Sacramento office has some of the best people to work with. Although I no longer work for AECOM, I keep in touch with several former co-workers. Historically there were lots of ways to get involved within the office including a mentor program, happy hours, and organized lunches (not company sponsored, but a nice way to get to know co-workers).

Cons

Work-life balance can be an issues at times, particularly since the economic downturn. While core values list employees as an important asset, this is often lacking in day to day operations both in the Sacramento office and from the corporate level.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consult the people on the front lines when implementing change. What works for one segment of the business may not work for all segments.

    Former Employee - Senior Project Manager in Houston, TX

    I worked at AECOM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefit plan was good
    Good flexibility and work life balance (mainly because the company can't motivate or resource staff to get and execute work)

    Cons

    This company is entirely driven by cash flow and stock price. Opportunities for promotion are slim and shrinking. The company sets lofty goals with no plans, resources, or leadership. As such, AECOM's unfilled promises to Wall Street are killing the stock price. The company is reactionary not visionary. Unwilling to invest in hiring or training good people. Absolutely oppressive environment and demand for utilization is unrealistic given the demand for revenue generation. Morale is awful. This company was born from the clumsy merger of several other firms; therefore, management systems are repetitive, useless, or irrelevant.
