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

Pros

Decent benefits

Decent pay

Publicly traded company

Cons

They bought up a lot of companies and brought in a lot of people then let people go left and right.

Not the nicest office work place aesthetically but have heard since this has changed (dull office space and no color copier or scanner, started monitoring your printing and made you charge to a job for printing even a single page)

Much of management lacked basic courteous social skills

Advice to Management

Talk to your staff
Particularly for upper management --> Get to know your employees names
Don't announce people's names on the PA system when you are calling them into your office to let them go

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

    Pros

    The position and strengths of the company provide for opportunities that you will not find in most offices. These opportunities range from innovative and ground-breaking projects to client focused positions. Also, the staff is second to none both in terms of talent as well as character. They tend to promote from within and reward hard work and excellence.

    Cons

    Like most public companies, there can be too much emphasis on the bottom line at times. As a result, our decision making can often appear short-sighted. I do believe that our leadership makes a concerted effort to minimize this con however.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reinforce the core values, and strive for additional ways to support the work / life balance.
