      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at AECOM full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Good project opportunities (office dependant).Job security is fair as the company size can offset costs quite easily

      Cons

      Disconnect between all levels. Trust is lacking and lack of leadership is evident. Numerous initiatives created that lead to nothing. Company prioritises profit over everything. Job satisfaction UK wide would appear to be fair to low. Core values are just noise and mean absolutely nothing.

      Advice to Management

      Need to understand and not just listen to employees. Numerous years of "I know what's best" approach despite clear indications showing otherwise is evidence that senior management and too distant from reality and why trust is low.
