  2. "Good Company (Your Mileage May Vary)!"

    4.0
    Current Employee - Engineer in Los Angeles, CA

    I have been working at AECOM full-time

    Pros

    As a global company, AECOM has many active projects. This provides numerous opportunities for obtaining billable work not only locally but also from other parts of the country or even other parts of the world. In my professional group, there is a lot of communication and plenty of work sharing to ensure that everyone stays busy. The number of projects available has also ensured that there is exposure to many different types of projects.

    Cons

    As such a large company, each professional group can have different levels of utilization, and the work environment can vary greatly depending on who you are working with or working under. Changes to the company leadership or regional leadership (which happen fairly often) can radically shift focus of how projects are won or which projects are prioritized. This is less of an issue for lower-level positions, but it can cause confusion and strain amongst the management.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AECOM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Access to experts in many fields worldwide. There are effective ways to connect with them and use their expertise. Training opportunities are available. Local work environment was OK, but with little interaction between groups.

    Cons

    Almost no one in the local office took an interest in what I was doing. Marketing support implied when I was hired did not materialize. I tried to reach out to other disciplines to provide support but was ignored. The quarterly numbers were more important than job performance.
