    I worked at AECOM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Mega projects and good benefits.

    Cons

    The middle management promotes among themselves even if it does not make sense. Why will promote a person that have not won any work for the office, why? They have to many young middle management people with no experience or connections. Everywhere that I go is the same thing, you win projects because you prove yourselves as competent and experienced on matter not because you are the president of such and such association or because you know the president of this other association and go golfing with him. AECOM middle management does not have the know how therefore they can't win.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the nonsense and start hiring seasoned experienced people and please let go of the top salaried people (it is killing the morale).

    I have been working at AECOM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The ability to work from home occasionally is a nice perk
    Work life balance is great!

    Cons

    It's hard to get the educational benefits they claim they offer.
    Layoffs are a monthly happening which is very hard to deal with, causing more work for everyone.
    Low moral in the office culture due to layoffs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limited room to grow and gain professional development.
