    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AECOM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great experience in the field, hands on learning, a lot of responsibility right off the bat. Great resources in the office as well, very helpful with making you comfortable in the cubicle (if that's possible), and in general very helpful nice people work here. Great benefits and rewarding work.

    Cons

    Having to constantly record your hours for every little thing that you do. A lot of overtime, stressful work.

    Advice to Management

    A lot of time is wasted recording project-based hours for payment. Instead, encourage strong supervisor relationships with the employees.

    Pros

    Opportunity to help build and grow with AECOM. We are still integrating and coming together as one company. For those that like to be a part of building something amazing- there are tremendous opportunities.

    Cons

    If you do not like change- you might not like it here. If you were part of a smaller company that was acquired, you might not like the large Fortune 500 company we are today.

    Advice to Management

    Looking forward to management changes with our new CEO.
