occasionally expected to work over time

Have the interns have an adviser who helps them out and not other employees

    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.
