    I have been working at AECOM full-time

    Pros

    The office has a great view. Under new design leadership, there is a renewed and growing design practice. There are opportunities for easy growth for talented individuals.

    Cons

    Internal politics get in the way of project success. Senior architects keep things hidden it to themselves. All the previous work in the office has the same architectural character and starts to get repetitive.

    Advice to Management

    Provide the appropriate venue to engage younger, talented designers early in the design process. Keep the dialogue open to ensure projects are fresh and modern.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can only speak for the Atlanta office, but management is very involved and supportive of employees. I feel that it is a work environment designed to help the employees collaborate and grow. AECOM is a huge company with diverse projects - if you put yourself out there, you can really learn a lot.

    Cons

    Benefits could be better - our health insurance is very expensive.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Excellent benefits and discount programs. Stress free work environment. Opportunity to telecommute.

    Cons

    Because it is primarily contract work the job security is lacking. If a contract is lost, and there is not an alternate contract to move to, you would be out of a job.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-Workers are great and help eliminate the corporate atmosphere. Can get involved in interesting projects which can lead to travel around the country. Excellent work/life balance.

    Cons

    For a company that constantly brags about their accolades, corporate just does not treat their employees great. They have a lot of benefits programs, but they are mostly superficial and really provide no actual benefit. Affordable health insurance offered are all high deductibles. High staff turnover because it is borderline impossible to get raises. Company constantly talks about their growth, but extremely cheap to their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start paying your employees so they stop leaving. Company cares more about shareholders than employees

    Pros

    Large company with a large amount of diverse project work and a global network of people.

    Cons

    Too much staff changes and restructuring to have a stable work environment.

    Advice to Management

    Create a company culture and stick with it. Invest in your people not your investors.
