    I have been working at AECOM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Of all private consultanties I've worked for over the years, this is the best. If you work hard at your role, you will be rewarded. Annual training is provided and management will give you opportunities in other areas/offices if you express so and are trusted by management to do so. Good opportunities to develop your career if you put in effort.

    Cons

    Pay in certain areas is not perfect but generally tends to rise if performance is good enough. Location of some offices not ideal

    Advice to Management

    Increased pay for good performing staff is always useful and staying in touch with employees as they can be become demotivated if not listened to
