Mechanical Environmental Engineering Supervisor (Former Employee) – Whiting, IN – September 10, 2015
If you like life at a fast track and a challenging environment then this is for you. I loved working for the company, the management was amazing and I had a great working relationship with colleagues, subordinates and higher management
Traffic Engineer (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – September 10, 2015
Working for AECOM starts out as being a great position. I have learned a lot about the transportation business and have made some good friends. I have learned to set goals and achieve them. We have a hard-working team. The most enjoyable part is working together as a team to go for a common goal.
Management makes a lot of promises and really makes you believe in your job and future. But then they hire someone less experienced and someone less qualified. They tell you to have patience and apply, but they've already got someone in mind for the position. The hardest part is watching how many people put their heart and souls into their jobs and then get looked over.
Low Morale is abundant.
Teamwork, Learning Experience
Promises that are never Delivered, Nonexperienced Management

Sr. Buyer III (Former Employee) – Las Vegas Valley, NV – September 4, 2015
To much micro management disturbed the team work of the employees. Kind of treated and spoken to as children when majority are 40+in age. Favoritism through out the local location, new employees placed in high level positions when the existing are most capable of being promoted etc.
Aircraft servicer (Former Employee) – Coronado, CA – September 3, 2015
Job started at 530am on a Naval Air station, with a job that didn't have too much work to do but continuously were busy doing work that was not in the job description. Management could have done a better job managing their people
Civil Engineering Intern (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – August 30, 2015
Overall, interning at URS was a deeply rewarding experience. I learned numerous technical programs, such as MicroStation, but I also learned how to work in a professional office environment. My coworkers were very helpful and friendly.
ENVIRONMENTAL PROJECT MANAGER (Former Employee) – Pittsburgh, PA – August 28, 2015
Company is extremely top heavy, opportunities for low to mid level advancement minimal, including training/certification/growth classes; AECOM is only concerned with their money, not clients or employees, the most selfish company I have worked for.
AECOM does not treat its workers well and has a lot of poor managers.
Electrical Specialist - EESS/EF (Current Employee) – McLean, VA – August 21, 2015
AECOM is only interested in increasing its profits. Unfortunately, those increase in profits, typically come from cutting wages and benefits from the employees. AECOM violates laws, contracts, and does not seem to care about the rights of its employees.
Great place to start my career and gain experience
Structural Engineer (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – August 20, 2015
More than anything else, the people within AECOM make it a great place to work from hiring manager and throughout the entire civil, structural, and architectural disciplines. Projects are large scale, complex, and challenging, working and coordinating with all disciplines to complete the design. There is diverse clients as well, industrial process, Oil and Gas, Power, Nuclear, Mining, and DOE. Competitive benefits.
Up until this year, all training for PDH and licensing fees are provided by the company. Great diversity of complex, highly technical projects.
The company has said for a long time that it's greatest asset is all the employees, yet seems a contradiction that people are not held onto when work gets slow.
Office Administrative Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Washington, PA – August 20, 2015
Interesting and varied position in a company that was all about the environment and their employees. Terrific experience and l learned more there in 5 years, than my career entire combined.
