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

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits were very good.

    Cons

    When the plant I worked at was closing the company was not at all proactive in helping employees obtain employment with other divisions. Resumes were submitted but never acknowledged or followed up on. There was no one for employees to contact to follow-up on the status of jobs applied for. Company lost a lot of really great employees due to the company's lack of interest in hanging onto them.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better system for recruiting and retaining internal employees. A lot of time an money goes into recruiting, training and obtaining clearances for employees, make an effort to retain them.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Competent people overall, positive work environment - I enjoy the environment and going to the office, top environmental consulting firm, pretty well-organized, employee-led efforts (such as volunteering and social activities), collaboration and flexibility, opportunities for career advancement, potential to explore other opportunities within the company, forward-thinking company that is doing lots of cool stuff around the world

    Cons

    Work can be stressful at times, managers are often too busy and you can feel ignored, some bad apples, so much task and billability focused that I haven't gotten sufficient mentorship or one-on-one training - many things I have taught myself

    Advice to Management

    Engage with general staff and do not put yourself in an ivory tower
