    I worked at AECOM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked for URS Corporation that was bought out by AECOM. The pay and benefits were incredible! The work atmosphere was relaxed and progress was always rewarded. The safety program was above and beyond a normal work site. Great place to work!

    Cons

    Some of the middle management were power-hungry and did not know how to be good supervisors.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with in the office and the field.

    Cons

    Since AECOM acquired URS, the focus of the company seems to be more profit driven than project driven.

    Advice to Management

    Revisit the company goals and provide incentives for all employees to improve upon product deliverables and customer satisfaction. The company will be nowhere without its customers. Also, start matching 401Ks again.
