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

Pros

Broad range of project types and locations provide good opportunites - especially for entry level and mobile emloyees. Decent pay and benefits. Recognition (that unfortunately does not always result in beneficial action) that people are the most important asset.

Cons

Publicly-owned company translates to relentless foucs on quarterly financial results and makes long term investments difficult. Some uneveness in management ranks - entitlement rather than merit.

Advice to Management

Remember what got you big - good people, client focus.

    I worked at AECOM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Friday morning bagels.
    - There was pizza once a month, though no more.
    - Metcalf & Eddy was the former company acquired by the behemoth AECOM blob. They were probably the better company to work for.

    Cons

    My list is too large and would be time consuming to write. Stay away from this company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up your all doing just great. You are just so much smarter than the rest of us pee ons.
