    Pros

    AECOM at the Warrenville office always had a steady flow of work.

    Cons

    We were no longer given comp time when we were billable over 40 hours. Instead it was straight pay. I preferred the time off, personally.

    Advice to Management

    The leadership is pretty good; however, some of the email correspondence from one of the secretaries was venty and passive aggressive. We were also required to do 15 minute monthly health and safety audits on coworkers while they performed duties in the office- which was awkward. Overall all, it was a good choice.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    free coffee and tea. They want to streamline everything to digital, so no space is wasted on hard files. They have consistent work.

    Cons

    They plan work spaces that cram too many employees together. They put more value on cutting costs than showing appreciation for their employees.

    Every corporate decision shows they don't really care about their employees ( which leads to decreased morale) . They just want to save money in the smallest possible way.

    Advice to Management

    Manage salary increases for hard work based on changes in a cost-of-living index. Design work environments where people actually want to work there and be creative. AECOM can't be a Google by designing/planning offices in the manner they do. I can't imagine why talented leaders/ future visionaries would stay at this company long-term.
