No opinion of CEO

I worked at AECOM as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Attentive, friendly office environment with a tight knit culture. As an intern, I was involved on five or six projects and was never forgotten. Every day was a new learning experience as opposed to just being the "CAD markup guy."

Cons

The office seemed to be losing it's great engineers to other companies due to lack of career mobility and compensation/benefits. If you have a good thing going, why let it slip away?

Advice to Management

Pay the man.

    Give time to the company to grow organically,, it has grown so large of recent that it is impossible for an employee to be heard in the company.
