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

    Pros

    Professional staff are friendly and likeable,

    Cons

    So many to list. Pay is ok but staff retention is awful, there is no explanation for redundancies and no focus on trying to help people keep their jobs. The business double accounts and charges clients for hours you have worked but doesn't pay you for the hours you've worked. Double standards and litle to no quality senior level management.

    Lots of nice brochures on how AECOM is a people driven company and they strive for Excellence but very little evidence of this at a local level. Large amounts of red tape and meetings which focus on telling people why they are doing poorly rather than trying to support people.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Manamgent is too focused on the share price and profits to see what is right before their noses. Stop aquiring and ruining good small businesses and focus on key areas that AECOM might look to suceed in.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free coffee, good co-workers, looks good on resume.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management doing who knows what. Bullying mid-level management concerned only with cutting costs. No development of talent. No training. Inefficient use of valuable talent. Technology repressive culture due to poor IT management. No local leadership, mentoring, or professional development. Internal transfer opportunity promotion is not true.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up! Lots of good people looking to show what they can really do.
