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 Management

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

    Pros

    Opportunities to work on very interesting projects and get good experience.

    Cons

    If you aren't a project manager you have little long term value to the company. Technical specialists are not valued my management.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on retaining talent than making your financial goals for the week.
