I worked at AECOM full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Health insurance is second-to-none.
Lots of room for growth and advancement.
Opportunities abound worldwide.

Cons

Publicly traded (401k match is in company stock, which doesn't increase in value - check it)
Houston, Texas branch is set up with unhealthy competition between operating groups.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Lots of "pitting employees against one another" to try and increase productivity and sales - this works in the short term, but eventually sets up islands within the company and creates a bad overall work environment.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time

    Pros

    I have a job. There's a deli in the building. I have a window.

    Cons

    Management appears more interested in the appearance of success than actual success. Few people seem to understand how to do their jobs. There are no defined roles and responsibilities and, if there are, they are classified and we're left to figure it out on our own. When you work hard, you get to live another day, but no one recognizes you. Management loves to congratulate itself but the people who actually do the work are forgotten. Bad behavior is rewarded. It's like working on a reality television show. Yes, "The Office" is based on reality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace them and hire a management team that can make this company successful.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good people, variery of interesting projects, health benefits are very good, access to a wide variety of design codes and specifications

    Cons

    Bloated beurocracy with many vice presidents, new initiatives / policies are constantly being rolled out,company does everything it can to save $ (eliminates secretaries, pushes employees into small office spaces with no privacy, makes it near impossible to attend conferences to meet PDH requirements, etc etc.), raises are mediocre despite numerous emails stating how well the company is doing, I could go on.....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't keep saying that you care about morale and retaining top talent while continuing on with policies stated above.
