    I have been working at AECOM full-time

    Pros

    Its diverse talent base enables AECOM to find solutions to almost any issue that our clients identify.

    Cons

    Its large size contributes to a bureaucracy that sometimes affects the nimbleness of its business units.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate more authority to its operating units at the smallest level possible.

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

    Pros

    The vision and strategy of the company. The great work they do that impacts positively the way people live, work and experience life... whether it is water for people or places for people

    Cons

    It is a complex company that is in the midst of a cultural and strategic change which can feel chaotic at times. I believe they are one the right path and have the right strategy in place for the future

    Advice to Management

    Stay on the course that has been charted but keep the communications flowing. more interaction with leadership will help to further cascade the vision and culture and bring employees along for the full journey

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

    Pros

    This company offers every benefit you can image (including a matching 401k, all health benefits, etc). My coworkers are all very nice and the environment is stress-free with open communication (I asked one of the "head honcho's" here a career development question and we had an inviting hour long chat about the future). AECOM is all about building a better tomorrow, which is really emphasized. There was even a recent global challenge every employee was able to be part of which is submitting an idea for the future and if you are nominated then the company provides support and capital to start your idea. The pay is great. I have talked about moving up and I receive positive feedback but no real steps YET. :)

    Cons

    It is hard to find downsides but I would have to say that the IT here is not the greatest but this year (FY17) the company decided to make an IBM IT merge to improve the issue.
    This is not much of a CON in my opinion, but since you can chat freely to any employee internationally here (via a web chat service) there is a close watch by corporate on what you say. They WILL call you if you say negative things on the chat or are reported by anyone, anywhere (so just be a good employee).

    Advice to Management

    There is not much. But I would say to let employees see a "tree" diagram or something to really show the different paths they can go down.
