    I have been working at AECOM

    Pros

    If you are a hard worker with good skills and would want a chance to work on mega projects, this would be a good company to come to. If you can stomach the feel good lies from the corporate propaganda and just concentrate on your own work, then AECOM is for you.

    Cons

    If you want to feel appreciated, and be paid based on performance and not who knows what, then do not come to AECOM.
    IT system is a mess, they keep laying off IT staff and spending money on computer components that do not help improve performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a look at who is doing most of the work, who does the work correctly, and who just has years of work under their belt. Stop paying people just because they have years of experience and start paying the up and comers who are being leaned on to finish the work.
    Get a new IT manager and build an IT system that works. We were told it takes 10 days to get a new computer from the day a new computer is requested. Truth is it took 6 months and even then the hardware choices are questionable.
