AECOM was a hard working enviroment but fun place to work.
Inspector lll (Former Employee), New York, NY – May 5, 2014
Working at AECOM on a typical day started at 7.00am. and ended when ever the Contractor stop working. For me it was a great learning experience, I learnt a lot about construction and management, even though I was not a manager, and most of all the people were great to work with.
PRODUCTIVE AND RELAXED WORK PLACE WITH RESEARCH AND FUN AT TIMES.

PRODUCTIVE AND RELAXED WORK PLACE WITH RESEARCH AND FUN AT TIMES. LEARNED WORK ETHICS; GET ALONG WITH GOOD AND NOT SO GOOD CO-WORKERS.

Great place to work if you don't mind job instability and travel
Other (Former Employee), Richmond, VA – April 24, 2014
Pros: great co-workers
Cons: constant layoffs. constant rumors about who will be laid off next.
AECOM requires that employees remain billable to clients as much as possible. If you aren't billable to a client, threats get made against your job. People are constantly getting let go because they had no billable work. Otherwise it is a great place to work. Great co-workers, management is patient and friendly, lots of ways to get involved in the community, – more... nice office atmosphere. – less
Great job for entry level positions that offer valuable work experience.
Quality Control Analyst (Current Employee), Springfield, VA – April 16, 2014
Aecom does a great job seeking out young developing talent that can be nurtured into experienced professionals and helps it's people advance to higher positions. The work is straight forward but can be tedious and requires specific attention to detail, but at the end of the day you know that you accomplished something that connects to the bigger picture.
AECOM is a place to grow and advance in a fast-paced, professional environment.
Manager, Talent Acquisition (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TX – March 25, 2014
I was fortunate to begin my career in Recruiting/Human Resources working for this Fortune 500 company. In the Government Services sector I was consistently promoted to increasingly challenging positions. AECOM sent me all over the world in my tenure, providing startup, setup and training on Human Resources and Recruiting practices for government contracts. – more... I enjoyed being the "go-to" person for problem resolution, project management, guidance and mentoring of junior staff.
The past 5 years as Talent Acquisition Manager enabled me to implement Recruiting process improvements, become the Subject Matter Expert on implementation, training and compliance of Applicant Tracking Systems; specifically Kenexa Brass Ring. I oversaw and managed a consultant recruiting staff who were responsible for high-volume recruiting in the Middle East and South Asia - deploying approximately 2200 hires in 2013.
I thrive on making order out of chaos so this position was extremely rewarding to me.
I would recommend anyone to pursue AECOM as a potential employer - either in the Corporate Engineering environment or the Government Contracts sector. They offer competitive salary, great benefits, a solid work ethic and professional growth. – less

Interim Systems Test Manager (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – March 9, 2014
Pros: other employees were a wealth of information and dependable
Cons: you are often secluded from the company
Review schedule, inspect and track work performed by contractor. I learned a great deal about train Control. Management was very supportive and responsive to all my requests and issues. I had only co-workers from other companies, not AECOM.
