Approves of CEO

I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

They are really good about making sure employees get paid on time and reimbursed for expenses.

Cons

Limited to no communication between management and staff and between business lines; monthly shifts in what is important to management; APIC, ever decreasing benefits, OneAECOM is very district-focused and limited opportunities are able to break these boundaries. They have failed to incorporate the existing heritage companies to date; what's going to happen with URS?

Advice to Management

There is a huge disconnect between upper management and technical staff. Please, please, please communicate with your employees. How many surveys do we need to fill out before you understand that we don't know what you want.

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

    Pros

    Get to see a big company many different departments and such

    Cons

    Everyone talks openly about lack of raises. Lack of non-technical development. Management looks down on young engineers wanting to learn project management or business skills early in your career

    Advice to Management

    Many engineering firms have Leadership development programs, allow young engineers to get into management early and become a leader within first 5 years, not 15 years down the road. Explaining to younger staff that the department head who is in late 30's is very young for his role is not motivating the younger staff.
