Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – November 28, 2015
Although it is a large company, many of these people have known, worked, and socialized with each other for decades. I personally have known a lot of the Denver office for decades. It's like a big family that has the normal family stresses and stuff going on, but there is also a camaraderie and an inclusion that is lacking in other companies. It is a fast paced environment but when it comes down to it, it's a caring environment even if strict corporate rules are in place because everyone knows everyone and helps pick up the slack when needed on deadlines and huge projects.
People are promoted fairly, Management is willing to train workers, and workers work hard. I can only speak about the Denver Office. Many people go to other companies, some come back, but everyone still knows everyone and that's the way it will always be. When you're there, it might drive you crazy, but when you leave, you'll always miss it. Most of my best friends have come out of this company. And this is a highly productive work environment. A lot of variety, challenges, learn new things and personal growth. Also a lot of tolerance of the goings on inside the group. You spend a lot of time with co-workers, and you get to know them. This is a very large office.
Friendly people, helpful work environment
Stress, deadlines, normal corporate bottom line rules
CONSTRUCTION MANAGEMENT INTERN (Former Employee) – Sylmar, CA – November 25, 2015
Exciting place to work with successful and determined people at your side. Everyone on the team would help each other out in any way necessary. Deadlines are met and expectations were very transparent.
senior administrative assistant (Current Employee) – Springfield, VA – November 13, 2015
My co-workers are a joy to work with. We are a team that looks out for each other and we have each other's back. My program manager gives me positive feedback about my work and encourages me to keep up the good work. AECOM is a fun place to work and the moral of the employees is very upbeat. To me it is the best place to work. I enjoy coming to work each day.
Everybody I met were genuine, fun and energetic. Enjoyed my time there and would love to work with all of them again. Management was sincere and honest, if anybody has a chance to go to work there its a great place to work at.

Great team to work with. Got work done in timely manner and everyone I worked with were easy to get along with. Great boss and was always encouraging me. And he told me I'd make a great Document Control manager.
Payroll Specialist (Current Employee) – Monroe, MI – November 10, 2015
The overall experience thus far has been very favorable and has allowed me to broaden my horizons through various experiences that I have learned and benefitted from greatly. The work environment was quite laid back, but deadlines were still very much important. The workload was never so over bearing that missing deadlines was severely in danger. I would love to be able to stay with this company, but at this time it doesn't appear as if that will be possible due to it being contract work for an outage.
Don't take work here! Negative People, no respect, bad pay!
receiving (Former Employee) – Utah, Hill AFB – November 5, 2015
I took this job thinking that it's a great place, how could it not be right it's work with the contract for DLA DoD contracts! DLA either doesn't care how there contract people are being treated, paid, and trained or they have no clue just how bad the management is to employees. No matter.. No raises, no time off, and gossip mill will leave you feeling less of a person and more of a nothing.
No job security and Corporation doesn't care about it's employees
former employee (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – November 3, 2015
Hired on for a project that went belly up after the economic crises of 2008. Their business model consists of hiring for "planned" work and then letting the employees go if the "planned" work doesn't come in.
Great team environment. I hear word they vary from office to office.
Instrumentation and Controls Engineer (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – October 31, 2015
Super supportive colleagues and teams. Lots of great mentors walking around. Great working team. My team always managed to meet the dates we were asked to do.
Word of advice for newbies. Part of the learning process is to ask questions. Depending on who you ask, you may only get a partial answer. Another word of caution: there is plenty of challenge so COMMUNICATION IS ESSENTIAL. Also, PMs and PEs constantly ask teams to do a lot in a very short time period. The office itself has not been around for very long and it shows at times.
Great mix of different ages, genders, etc.all working together for a common goal. Lots of team building and out of work activities. This place can easily begin to feel like a home if you let it.
