I worked at AECOM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Involved in the leading transportation engineering projects around the world. In my time at aecom, I had the opportunity to work on several of these once in a life time projects. Worked with some very talented people.

Cons

Since going public, there has been an emphasis on cash and profitability. While understandable and even an industry trend, this emphasis isn't well received and adds to a negative connotation. Aecom spends a lot of time trying to figure out the right mix between business lines and geographic regions and I still don't believe they have found the right mix.

    Pros

    Very talented individuals, some really great projects, good benefits for families.

    Cons

    Far too top heavy. While profit is of course important and brings good things, they've no idea how to encourage employees and PM's to achieve them. There's so much scrutiny on every penny, expenditure, and hour charged to a project, you're scared to take on a PM role. Not much advancement opportunity, and at that, not sure you'd want to move up anyway - then you'd be in the crosshairs even more. Haven't had a raise beyond 2% in years while big shots continually book first class flights and upper class hotel rooms while traveling on overhead budgets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more local management and leeway on project setup, management, and direction. Ditch the entire regional management level.
