Pros

AECOM is a large and very succesful firm in terms of growth. In spite of the economic challenges the world faces, AECOM is well positioned for continued growth, both organically and through acquisitions. The culture is still male dominated- engineers and architects. Internationally diverse although true opportunities for growth and mobility within the larger corporate structure are yet to be realized.

Cons

Constant re-organization. The process of consolidating the operating companies will take years and will be challenging to manage. One must be agressive and have higher than average tolerance for change and ambiguity to thrive and grow in this kind of environment.

Advice to Management

Encourage high productivity, not long hours. Life-work-balance

    Pros

    The company seems to offer very good salary and benefits The company provides varied assignments away from one's home office Office and employee support in logistical areas, such as office space, administrative facilities, copiers, computer hardware and software, IT tech assistance, etc are top notch.

    Cons

    Although senior management provided timely and appropriate "big picture" information to employees, middle management seemed to provide very little communications in those areas that directly affected employees. As a long time professional working in the area of architect-engineer-construction management services, I have been used to being a "sellor-doer" in pursuing work and then providing the services to a client base with which I have developed good working relationships. Unfortunately, AECOM's business model appears to require that one be either or the other. Staff are either marketing or operations, but little opportunity to do both exists.

    Advice to Management

    check on how well middle management distributes information down the chain of command

    Pros

    beats burger king. but in reality there are some very good people that you can't help but believe in when you work with them

    Cons

    right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. the divide between internal business lines creates information and work flow bottle necks. the central IT department seems clueless at best given the mix of tech in the former opco's. And lastly the ethics guidelines are a wash job of the highest order.

    Advice to Management

    let engineers be engineers make your accounting staff earn their keep. allow your staff to find and build mentorships. move forward embrace new tech and new methods.
