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

    Pros

    Great Benefits
    Growing Company
    Positive Core Values

    Cons

    Corporate Politics
    Not enough growth opportunities available and no clear career paths

    Advice to Management

    Offer better merit increases to older employees so they will stay instead of searching elsewhere. AECOM is a great company to work at and people shouldn't need to feel like they need to leave to receive a bigger salary bump.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management is so top secret even they don't know what they are doing!

    Cons

    Everything. No direction, no vision, no collaboration. conglomerate of smaller companies with no incentive to work as a single company. Company is much more interested in competing with themselves than with competitors. Claims of ethics, management, technical competence and client focus are more absurd than the name of the company that means noting to anyone. Business buys other companies, destroys their backlog and fires the competent acquisition acquired talent.

    Advice to Management

    I would share advice if I thought they could read anything other than their own PR. Incompetence is preferred, political decisions always trump logical ones and the more time you give trying to do what is right as opposed to what is expedient and provides insulation to "leaders" the more disappointed you will become. Some of the best talent has left either on their own or has been dismissed because they dared to try to make things more effective for staff, clients and the bottom line. How dare they!
