I wonder if the CEO is overpaid?

I have been working at AECOM full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

It's a job with benefits

Cons

Another year another 1% raise because "our senior people are overpaid"

    I worked at AECOM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some wonderful, talented colleagues who are passionate about and highly committed to what they do.
    A great mix of staff from all over the world which brings a range of opinions, cultures and experiences to the working environment.

    Cons

    As the organisation grew, the positive and proactive mood changed dramatically. A lack of independence and enhanced control from the US has turned the local region into a bureaucratic sheep.
    Very poor integration strategies with the smaller companies which AECOM purchased, leading to further discord.
    Very clear that being 'friends' and spending time socially with management was key to longevity and success in this particular office.
    This was further evidenced by unprofessional, inappropriate and downright unacceptable behaviour in the office by certain key area leaders which went unnoticed and unaddressed due to their close personal relationships with management. As such, no recourse for staff who had issue with this.
    No career opportunities for the support/administrative services and poor remuneration. Despite working extremely hard, going beyond targets and having a good reputation and support of many staff, my own remuneration, and that of my team, was kept stagnant due to the greed of my manager.
    A lack of people management training for those leading teams. No accountability in this regard either - in a team where 6 out of 8 team members were turned over in a year, I would have thought some alarm bells might ring and some examination of that team might be worthwhile.
    Some inexplicable business processes and decisions lead to a number of morale lows throughout my two years there.
    Such a shame that a company with a large collection of such fantastic and skilled employees turned into a toxic and unhealthy environment for people like myself and others who unfortunately were in the wrong team at the wrong time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No advice to management - they should be spilled and refilled with a fresh batch who may still possess ethics, professionalism and unbiased business sense.

    I worked at AECOM

    Pros

    AECOM is a strong engineering company with multiple branches in government contracting.

    Cons

    Even though it's a good company, it may be difficult in certain contracts to move up.
