    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Broad range of expertise within the organisation at your fingertips
    - Great offices, central location which is easily accessible on bus/train
    - Staff are generally easy going and friendly
    - Global firm with the possibility of international transfer
    -

    Cons

    - Emphasis on utilisation and writedowns changes on a monthly basis
    - Staff are so worried about having utilisation they'll over book to jobs
    - Lack of power for discipline leaders to award pay raises, bonuses, recruit etc.
    - Business is crippled by unnecessary administrative tasks, approvals
    - Risk averse, we are constantly 'the difficult ones' when it comes to signing contracts
    - Renumeration is generally below industry average

    Advice to Management

    The key to focusing on our clients needs is to have engaged, happy staff not by "lets make better possible"....

    I worked at AECOM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    some nice people to work with, with the opportunity to grow in your role and take on extra responsibilities

    Cons

    Decision making regarding retrenchments can't be sane. Regional offices losing staff due to retrenchments so only skeleton staff remain = extra pressure/stress for the staff remaining causes them to leave also. No staff = no work can be done = no money. To lose experienced staff is like shooting yourself in the foot.
    High chargability doesn't equal job security. Received excellent reviews so that's not the issue either. Don't understand their reasoning.

    Advice to Management

    Its too late.
