I worked at AECOM as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

If you are business-minded there are plenty of additional opportunities to work for the company in the US.

The vacation policy was one of the worst compensations compared to other companies.

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at AECOM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A massive, fragmented company cobbled together from buying several privately held and formerly successful sector brand companies.

    Cons

    While portraying an outward blue chip image, it seems to exist for one principal reason - to support its publicly traded stock price, at the expense of customers and employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be more loyal to your employees who are working hard to maintain billable hours while you collect your salaries off company overhead.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time

    Pros

    Some nice people and interesting projects from when the other companies existed.

    Cons

    - Heavily bureaucratic
    - Glass Ceiling
    - Cost cutting at every corner so you have to do everything
    - Perpetual state of emergency on projects since they only get the clients that no one wants
    - 100 billibility mandate is meant to keep you in your place.
    - Global company operated as a local one. People and office consistently bicker and fight. No cohesion whatsoever.

    DO NOT THINK THAT YOU WILL HAVE GLOBAL OPPORTUNITIES. ITS A COMPLETE LIE.

    Advice to Management

    People are running for the door. There is no work life balance at your firm and we are tired of treated as a number with a margin requirement. Good luck you'll need it.
