No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Decent benefit, interesting projects and plenty of opportunities to work around the country as long as you know the upper management.

Cons

upper Management is a joke and not fair to some people. No one really care about your career growth unless your boss like you then you are golden.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at AECOM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Big, but boring and poor quality product. Too many highly paid non client facing jobs worths who manage by spreadsheets and sell their soul for a salary

    Cons

    Totally bottom line driven and high staff turnover means this folly will end badly.

    Advice to Management

    It's too late, you're on a crash and burn death spiral

    I worked at AECOM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people who work here are great people. The projects are interesting. There is enough variety to gain experience in several areas especially if you're willing to travel.

    Cons

    You are just a number here. Layoffs are frequent and from my perspective made little sense. It is easy to get pigeonholed and pay is low. Promises of promotions are typically not kept. Platitudes are used to keep you going until the next unkept promise comes to light.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promises to promote from within. Don't undervalue your good employees. They will eventually leave.
