Advice to Management

Listen to the needs of your employees with emphasis on the goals and growth potential of an individuals assessments. Keep in mind that people are the basis for the companies growth and not just the bottom line financially of the company. Above all do not let the complaints of an individual be brushed aside do to race, sex, capability, age or sexual orientation. Consider the growth of your company instead of sweeping things under the rug or out the door.

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

    Pros

    1) Global opportunities for people and interesting jobs.
    2) Great local offices.
    3) Large company with experts in any field if you can find them.
    4) Very flexible work schedule.

    If you find the right office, AECOM is a great place to work. The Wakefield office has lots of projects from all over the world, expertise in lots of fields, flexible managers, and great people.

    Cons

    1) Upper management making decisions without regards to the employees that are affected by them.
    2) Very big - so big that it's hard to change things quickly.

    This is a big company - so individuals get lost in the big corporate environment. Listen, this is a tough economy so yes money is a focus. It's a business and needs to make a profit. However, decisions are made that seem to not to take into account that employees are actual people sometime. This is generally does not apply at the office level, but above that.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people like actual people and not just numbers in a budget.
