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

Pros

AECOM are a very large organisation, comprising many service lines and offering opportunities to work on a diverse project portfolio in a wide range of geographies.

Cons

Biggest frustration is the admin and bureaucracy that a NY Stock Exchange-listed corporation entails. The size of company can make you feel like a number.

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

    Pros

    The brand is still strong. Benefits are better than most. There are countless brilliant people in the company from all corners of the world. The company is a leader in most of the areas it competes.

    Cons

    Little transparency. Very low morale and more internal competition than I have witnessed anywhere. The company is a war zone and it seems that most are plotting their exit. External appearances do not match the internal reality.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate. Simplify the organisation.

    I worked at AECOM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    You got paid every two weeks
    Got a work truck

    Cons

    Your just a number here
    Measely raises
    No respect or rewards for hard work
    Terrible work environment and employee moral
    Very bad name with clients, contractors, and public
    Management does little to no hard work and likes to pass their workload onto others.

    Advice to Management

    Start respecting, rewarding, retaining, and compensating valuable employees before they are all gone.
    You shouldn't tell your employees to try and find a better company to work for because it is not to hard to find!
