    Positive Outlook

    I worked at AECOM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It was a pretty solid place to work and I met lots of interesting people. I can't speak to the senior management, really, as they were pretty remote.

    Cons

    Nothing major, but linguist work has a definite ceiling for growth. It's basically an assembly line. Not the fault of the company, just the nature of the work.
