Logistics Tech Lead (Former Employee), afghanistanOctober 9, 2013
Lack of Organization at manager level
Payroll issues me and 20-30 other employees had pay problems. It took three months to get mine corrected. Pay is the last thing you want to worry about, when deployed to a hostile dangerous environment.
Constantly treated like a number instead of an employee. I witnessed a lot of good supervisors and employees resin – more... because this.
No paid vacation – less

It was challenging alot of unknown
Automated Logistics Specialist (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXOctober 9, 2013
Pros: my work area was also my living area so i never was late for work.
Cons: moving from base to base after my base closed
Working for the company started off being good, but then after a few months working overseas for the company i realized as well as other co workers it was alot of favoritism of who you knew and didn't know, meaning if someone you didn't get along with you people they may know wouldn't like you based off what their friend told them even if you were a – more... great worker, then the biggest issue was not really knowing weather or not you would still have a job with the contract status,because the company was issuing out pro rated bonuses for certain job positions co workers could go home before their contract ended. I met alot of wonderful people even with all the nonsense with management i keep in touch with alot of of coworkers, and i really enjoyed the winter time because it snowed alot and being from Texas you don't see much snow. – less

Recruiting at AECOM
Global Linguist Solutions (GLS) (Former Employee), Falls Church, VAOctober 5, 2013
Pros: very good benefits and compensation, ethical working culture and values.
Cons: this was a temporary contract that ended after 4 years of working with aecom
I have alot of good memories working as a recruiter. I have a helping nature so having the opportunity to communicate with different poeple who have different cultures and experience really helped me learn more about the international aspect of business. I got to fill requisitions worldwide to support the US military CONUS/OCONUS.

QUALITY CONTROL INSPECTOR (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAOctober 2, 2013
12 hour days, 7 days a week. Environmental extremes. Living accommodations vary. Shopping facilities vary. Internet available though often slow and a bit pricey. Some locations have "local eateries" ie. Popeye's chicken, Burger king

Pros: zero
Cons: zero
Management didn't care about anything. I use to do payroll every Friday and every time my guys get paid payroll in the states mess it up and never wanted to fix the problem. One of my team leaders coworkers MA12 & ME12 had problems with their pay and saw a dime.

Not mainline employee
Software Support Analyst (Former Employee), Cary, NCSeptember 7, 2013
Although I was permanent staff, I was not an engineer, which is their core business, and this office wasn't one of their big offices. The people were friendly enough, and there were regular company events, but they weren't on the same scale as some of those put on by other companies I've worked for.

Hard work for little pay
Site Manager (Former Employee), Mazar-E-Sharif, AfghanistanSeptember 2, 2013
84 hour work weeks, no overtime and no benefits. While deployed in an environment such as Afghanistan, moral is as important as a pay check. If the company you work for doesn't care for its employees as much as it's investors, there is a disconnect between senior and subordinate.

Aircraft Mechanic II / Team Lead (Current Employee), AfghanistanAugust 25, 2013
Pros: supporting us military personnel
Cons: pay, management, employees
I joined Aecom Government Services as an aviation support contractor. Expecting to join a team of organized professionals with common knowledge of specific airframes they were hired to work on. From the initial in-processing week up to the present day, to say I'm unimpressed would be a severe understatement. One disappointment after another, no pay – more... for the entire week you're attending training and medical screenings. No pay while traveling to the work site you're assigned to. Once I arrived at my work site, I was unable to contact an Aecom representative for an hour, and it took them another hour just to pick me up from the terminal. Luckily they got me into housing pretty quickly, but the roommate they stuck me with was highly unhygienic, and they weren't willing to move me. After a month of complaining to my supervisor about the dirty roommate I was with, they finally moved me. As far as the work environment, the safety supervisor managed to add so many safety restrictions, we were actually hindered from completing aircraft maintenance in a safe and timely manner. To give you an idea of the lack of qualified aircraft mechanics at this site, I was promoted to team lead my second day on site, without ever touching a helicopter. Many of the mechanics here have little to no knowledge about the airframe they were assigned to maintain. Not only does this company pay the rock bottom of all salaries for this contract industry, the raise they gave me as a team lead, responsible for accountability of 8 personnel, all of their tools, all aircraft maintenance assigned to my team, any safety violations committed by anyone in the facility and all for a raise of $1.00 USD / hour. Work schedule is 13 hours a day, 7 days per week, if you take a day off, they do not pay you per-diem or hazard pay for that day, even though you're still in country. The management at this site are unqualified for their positions, knowledge of how operations should run on a day to day basis was elementary. Communication, oh wow, since the day I have arrived on site, I have yet to be given any formal brief on company policies, passing information about work orders, or any information that should be disseminated for that matter. Hardest part of the job, maintaining sanity, when there is no aircraft to work on, you are expected to sit or stand where you are. There are no electronics or reading materials allowed while on the clock. However, you are allotted one unpaid hour lunch, and 3 or 4 15 minutes breaks throughout your 13 our day. – less

Material Coordinator III, Warehouse logician (Current Employee), Springfield, VAAugust 25, 2013
I, Always been a hard and dedicated worker in any job that I do. I'm always taking on new challenges each day. I have been in the logistics field for many years now and the most I like about the job is Warehousing, Driving a forklift, Inventory, Building pallets for locations around the world and working with a good team. I'm also learning to manage – more... in a supervisor atmosphere with each team player that I work with, training on how to be a supervisor and more. The hardest part about this job is that there isn't anything hard about it if you do the right thing and remember the job in hand you shouldn't have any problems. – less

Supply Clerk/ Supply Specialist (Former Employee), AfghanistanAugust 23, 2013
work 7 days 12hrs. The moral was real low. Co-workers were great. The hardest part of the job was management because they were very micro-managed. But i've learned that no matter how bad the circumstances are, the person has to make the best of it and learn from everyone from every job to make myself a better well rounded employee.

Loved the safety aspects. Number one
Mechanic, Quality Control Inspecter Assembler (Former Employee), Chambersburg, PAAugust 22, 2013
Pros: loved it at letterkenny. the safety, the people and the work.
Cons: can not say anything bad here.
I loved working under AECOM due to the safety. I felt secure for safety has always been number one for me. I loved doing what I was doing on both assembly lines as well as working on the patriot trailers. I worked from my heart and stayed busy. I have learned a lot about keeping the troopers safe. I have gained a lot of experience and proud of it. My – more... managers that took me under their wing I simply loved working for them most importantly working with them. My managers seen and respected my work ethics and near the end I received a great work evaluation which I did not strive for but worked from my heart. They knew and seen the worker I was. My co-workers I was so honored to have had that experience in working with ALL.The hardest part of the job was getting laid off. The most enjoyable was just being there with all my co-workers and working safe and doing the best I could from my heart to do my part for our troops out there fighting for the freedom we all enjoy and I thank each and everyone of them from my heart in which my heart and thoughts are with all serving and fighting for our freedom. I actually started working at letterkenny in September of 2004 but was laid off and lost my time in 2010. I got called back under AECOM but the work ran out and the funding was not there. In hopes I will return to that wonderful place the best job one could ever ask for. – less
