Cons

hectic and stressful at times when projects were due
occasionally expected to work over time

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have the interns have an adviser who helps them out and not other employees

    I worked at AECOM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most of the people there were great, cooperated and got along very well, I had a decent salary that paid my mortgage and allowed nice vacations. Friday bagels and donuts, the building was well lit and recently remodeled

    Cons

    Where do I start? After having spent many years and promised advanced training it never managed to appear. Now after all the lay offs especially in the IT department recently, now it takes days to get any help out of the weakened overworked IT staff, most everyone I know who is still there hates the stressful working environment and are wondering if they too will be laid off and are looking for a new job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I understand you had to cut back some due to your behemoth size and the global economic downturn but did you really need to hamstring everyone who is trying to get their job done? Didn't you learn anything from the TYCO debacle?
