Very cold unfriendly environment. Everyone working in silo. Management are not empowered to make decisions. Senior management are extremely indecisive and have an unclear strategy. Very 'old school' and not willing to change from old practices that have been followed for years. Benefits are not competitive in the industry and hesitant to bring in younger aspiring talent into senior positions as you have to have the correct number of years experience. Will always be behind its competitors.
Pros
Work/life balance but no different than others in the industry
Cons
Resistant to change, average benefits not progressive

Great sense of team spirit at AECOM. Plenty of optional subsidised activities after work to engage with colleagues. Flexi-time was great so it wasn't a problem if you arrived later than 9am as long as you did your hours.

Awful bullying management, once over 45 you’re finished - or been there a couple of years. No loyalty on either side. Upside is good projects and some great colleagues at the top of their game prepare to work from home
Pros
Flexible
Cons
No security or loyalty to staff

There is very little time for job/life balance. Very exciting projects and employs great technical people. There is opportunity to move around but career progression is limited to those who can win business.

The management seem to lurch from one great idea to the next, not achieving what they set out to do. The silo culture results in a lot of missed opportunities for a better client solution and better projects overall.

Learned how to become a competent engineer, put me through my qualifications was a nice place to work. The management team however doesn't appreciate the work put in and is reflected in performance reviews

If you can start young here and work your way up the posibilites seem very good and they obviously reward loyalty , if you come to this company at a mid point in your career there doesn't seem to be the same support. Very little to no training , very little to no feedback from middle management . Its a shame because the offerings of the company and the ethos they want to spread is very positive , it just doesn't seem to get implemented

The company is very large circa 100 000 personnel worldwide therefore a culture of being nothing more than a worker ant or number prevails. Salaries are not market competitive and annual increases usually fall below annual inflation.

Started off as being a very wonderful place to work but over time I realised that there is no room to progress your career. In the end there isn't were job cuts, new bosses and no morale.

What I would usually do is I would shadow a manager, and he would show me techniques that he would use and show the day to day of a office job life. what I enjoyed about that job is learning more about others and how they enjoy there time there.
