    Focus on a manageable number of initiatives vice trying to do too many things at once.

    Pros

    Very diverse, global company with a broad market portfolio. The company is positioned to become the premier Engineering & Construction firm in the industry within the next 5 years. The salary and benefits are very competitive, employee development is a high priority, and the company's executive leadership sets a positive tone for the company and it's future.

    Cons

    With any mega-firm, some employees can feel like they are "just a number".

    Advice to Management

    Leaders ultimately are the "face of the company" to their direct reports and have the biggest impact on how they view the company as a whole.

    Pros

    I have been in the engineering profession for over 44 years and have worked at and for many companies. By far AECOM is the company the is most enjoyable to work for. AECOM management promotes and respects diversity, truly cares for it's employees safety, continued learning, and advancement. Mike Burke and other senior managers are very approachable and "down to earth" folks, next door neighborly types! The open communication including Sales Force and Chatter that are promoted by AECOM creates a culture of camaraderie that is fun to be a part of. As a senior employee, retirement is the farthest thing from my mind because I am enjoying my time working for AECOM.

    Cons

    There are no cons that can add

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and thank you for making AECOM a humane place to work.

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

    Pros

    Very smart, dedicated global team. Leadership is committed to making the new AECOM the best place to work, and the best in the business. I'm new to the team, and the outpouring of "welcomes" has been terrific. The company has a "go big or go home" mindset -- which is incredibly exciting. Everyone brings their A-game to the effort.

    Cons

    Lots of systems, processes and procedures that have yet to be completely knit together post acquisition. It's clear that's a top priority for management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being visible and accessible to employees. Love the responsiveness to internal challenges and opportunities... nice that opinions really do matter as demonstrated by a highly engaged executive team.

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

    Pros

    People centered company that is truly interested in its employees. They are constantly looking at better ways to meet our project requirements. AECOM is not afraid of change.

    Cons

    No real cons. If you are most comfortable with a company who never changed it processes and likes to remain stagnant this is not a good fit. AECOM is a big company that cares about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work

    I have been working at AECOM full-time

    Pros

    A global company that takes care of its employees. I've been working here for a while and love it. The people are great and the company really cares. I'm surprised at the disgruntled employees trying to take out their anger on such a public medium. Don't let this form your perception of the company. Instead, actually go to an office and you'll see what I'm talking about

    Cons

    It's a corporate MNC so yes, it's serious work that one needs to be detailed oriented for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing for better employee interaction because that's the best way to foster the same environment that I've gotten used to at AECOM.

    Corporate culture can be annoying, but you'll find this at any consulting firm.
