I worked at AECOM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Health insurance is second-to-none.
Lots of room for growth and advancement.
Opportunities abound worldwide.

Cons

Publicly traded (401k match is in company stock, which doesn't increase in value - check it)
Houston, Texas branch is set up with unhealthy competition between operating groups.

Advice to Management

Lots of "pitting employees against one another" to try and increase productivity and sales - this works in the short term, but eventually sets up islands within the company and creates a bad overall work environment.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time

    Pros

    I have a job. There's a deli in the building. I have a window.

    Cons

    Management appears more interested in the appearance of success than actual success. Few people seem to understand how to do their jobs. There are no defined roles and responsibilities and, if there are, they are classified and we're left to figure it out on our own. When you work hard, you get to live another day, but no one recognizes you. Management loves to congratulate itself but the people who actually do the work are forgotten. Bad behavior is rewarded. It's like working on a reality television show. Yes, "The Office" is based on reality.

    Advice to Management

    Replace them and hire a management team that can make this company successful.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company, lots of interesting work

    Cons

    Management has a complete and utter disregard for employees, we all just "DLU"s (disposable labor units)

    Advice to Management

    For a company that essentially makes its money through what its employees do for their clients you should be treating your employees better. (Annoy your employees and you likely annoy your clients)
