I have been working at AECOM

Pros

Flexible schedule, good opportunity for work/life balance, decent benefits.

Cons

Corporate is overly-focused on the bottom line. Employees feel like numbers, not people. No sense of job security. Very top-heavy organization.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make your employees feel valued. Focus on retention.

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

    Pros

    When we were Earthtech, things were good. We were moving and shaking.

    Cons

    Once AECOM took over, all went downhill. They just wanted the name, and not the people. The majority of us got let go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the workers. Bring back some of us old-timers.

    Management afraid to make tough decisions. Too old, too comfortable. Not held accountable for their own actions.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great Benefits and World-wide opportunities

    Cons

    Female Architects and Engineers are routinely overlooked for leadership positions. Too few female Lead Architects and Engineers. Americas still reflect heavy bias towards tradition - white, male, 6ft tall. Managers lack ability to assess staff skillsets. Management by personality over-rule skills and innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop listening to "yes-men" and start asking tough questions. The last two years have been the worst example of miss-managment.
