Endless, Slow Downward Slide

Environmental Scientist (Former Employee)

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

ProsCoworkers are generally professional, likable, and friendly.
Willing to offer flexible schedules; good about avoiding excessive individual workloads.
Support staff (nonprofessional) tend to be very helpful and caring; however this trait is quickly dissipating over time.
Good opportunities to learn, get training, and try new tasks and various projects.

ConsHorrendous pay with a laughable [minimum] yearly raise and sub-par benefits.
Frequently lay-off employees due to light workload ... and then look to hire again without any reason or improvement in workload.
Have no qualms about firing/laying-off workers just in time for holidays.
Huge disparity in work consistency and quality between offices; offices are extremely resistant to sharing work with each other.
Poor quality control in outgoing/final documents (grammar, spelling, etc.).
Immense disparity about operational procedures and quality between offices. Upper management (office/department/program managers, etc.) on the west coast is downright horrible to work for/with, with a tendency to be lazy, whereas midwest upper management is much better. Lower level workers are generally good quality throughout.
H&S program is becoming suffocating to field personnel, causing field activities to suffer.
Increasing trend of project managers not managing their projects, delegating duties to others. What exactly are they managing?!

Advice to Senior ManagementStop acquiring companies and absorbing them into AECOM. Instead, work on improving the current company and its operations.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Large firm that leads to lack of ownership/responsibility by individuals in work

Project Engineer (Current Employee)

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


Pros: Great benefits package, flexible work schedule, exposure to large scale… Cons: IT is behind the industry standards but catching up (due to combining each of the legacy companies… Advice to Senior Management: Continual conversations with employees about expectations and growth is important (even… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
