    I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits package, flexible work schedule, exposure to large scale projects and diverse in house expertise.

    Cons

    IT is behind the industry standards but catching up (due to combining each of the legacy companies to One AECOM a few years back). Large company allows for some professionals to slip through the cracks.

    Advice to Management

    Continual conversations with employees about expectations and growth is important (even if difficult at times). Leading by example is effective and important.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large Company with hands in many types of construction. Worldwide spread and still growing.

    Cons

    Lay offs of quality individuals where the less efficient still hold their jobs and don't do them! As a worldwide company one would expect that the company would want to expand from within, instead they are laying people off and expecting many to pick up large workloads meant for more than a few. Little room for growth - The company is too large to grow as an individual. You end up getting pigeon holed into something... and likely wont get out! Merit increases of less than 2% when your reviews are outstanding in insulting and disheartening!

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention. Us peons are people too and without us you don't have a company. Reward those who do well and address those who don't and find solutions. Don't push problems under the rug and expect things to just go away. Part time staff should not be leads on projects. Address workplace professionalism & etiquette when individuals are outright rude to colleagues and inappropriate.... I could go on.
