I worked at AECOM full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Involved in the leading transportation engineering projects around the world. In my time at aecom, I had the opportunity to work on several of these once in a life time projects. Worked with some very talented people.

Cons

Since going public, there has been an emphasis on cash and profitability. While understandable and even an industry trend, this emphasis isn't well received and adds to a negative connotation. Aecom spends a lot of time trying to figure out the right mix between business lines and geographic regions and I still don't believe they have found the right mix.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, now that people have been furloughed (vol.or Unvol.)plenty of work so no worry about another round of Layoffs.

    Cons

    Horrific Office Location, Lack of response when issues are raised, lack of local management presence, lack of employee retention, little to no accountability (if you want something done in this company, own it).

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, quit micro managing, reduce upper management, create incentive for employees to perform (bonus pool, you got one), a standard raise of 2-3% will not cut it for employees who put the extra effort in.
