    I have been working at AECOM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Large, world-class interesting projects. Not much else. I guess I have to keep typing to get my 20 words.

    Cons

    Low or no raises but CEO gets 20% per year. They run engineers ragged into the ground. Lays off staff when stock price falls and keeps remaining staff afraid for their jobs. Took a great mid-sized engineering company and ruined it. Took local IT and replaced it with a call center (same for HR). Agrees to impossible schedules then expects engineers to give up their personal lives to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bite me! I'm outta here.

    I have been working at AECOM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Some good people who were here before we got bought up. We don't have to vaccum or clean the toliets (yet)

    Cons

    Since being taken over by the global giant, EVERYTHING is more difficult. Opening a job, managing a job, getting approvals, hiring people, getting IT help (non-existent).

    The hypocrisy of upper management: the money spent on internal PR, (the latest being so called "Next Gen") and there is nothing for bonuses, when we are in the hottest economy in North America, and our competitors are getting well rewarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut the shallow marketing, which only appeals to those who have drunk the koolaid. Nobody else is buying it. and concentrate on treating people fairly and honestly. If you don't think that matters, then why are so many people leaving? Maybe your obsession with catering to the shareholders isn't going to make much of a company in the long run. Your employees have no faith in "AECOM".
