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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    Coworkers are generally professional, likable, and friendly.
    Willing to offer flexible schedules; good about avoiding excessive individual workloads.
    Support staff (nonprofessional) tend to be very helpful and caring; however this trait is quickly dissipating over time.
    Good opportunities to learn, get training, and try new tasks and various projects.

    Cons

    Horrendous pay with a laughable [minimum] yearly raise and sub-par benefits.
    Frequently lay-off employees due to light workload ... and then look to hire again without any reason or improvement in workload.
    Have no qualms about firing/laying-off workers just in time for holidays.
    Huge disparity in work consistency and quality between offices; offices are extremely resistant to sharing work with each other.
    Poor quality control in outgoing/final documents (grammar, spelling, etc.).
    Immense disparity about operational procedures and quality between offices. Upper management (office/department/program managers, etc.) on the west coast is downright horrible to work for/with, with a tendency to be lazy, whereas midwest upper management is much better. Lower level workers are generally good quality throughout.
    H&S program is becoming suffocating to field personnel, causing field activities to suffer.
    Increasing trend of project managers not managing their projects, delegating duties to others. What exactly are they managing?!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop acquiring companies and absorbing them into AECOM. Instead, work on improving the current company and its operations.
