Restoration Ecologist (Former Employee), Ontario, CA – December 18, 2013
Pros: safety and training availability; extensive resources.
Cons: most facets of the company are positive.
A large, diverse company like AECOM has the resources to pay well without posing much danger of company failure. There is a strong corporate culture of safety and training. Management at the local level was friendly and encouraging to staff. Co-workers generally were amiable and cooperative. The job was overall quite enjoyable, with a good balance of – more... field and desk work. – less
There was no leadership in the company Birmingham office and no way to move up. I only received 1 pay raise of 1.25 the hole time I was working there I started at 7.75 a hour and they found out we was being paid under scale and they moved us up to 10.75 but did not reimburse us for back time. other then that I got to meet a lot of great people and learned – more... a lot from my old boss that passed away. – less
Mechanic II (Current Employee), Sinai, Egypt – December 9, 2013
Pros: easy going
Cons: benefits and my tools
Maintaining UH-60 for MFO, phase, unscheduled through flight line maintenance. Most tools and parts at this remote site. Management is in Fort Worth, very few responses for email as benefits and when will my tools arrive. Typical coworkers, everyone has their day, on the most part, one of the better crews I have worked with. No real hard work to this – more... site.. Ability to join tours of the Middle East and Europe.. – less
Renewable Energy Project Manager (Former Employee), LACCD – November 21, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: will work you to death; political environment
Was always afraid for my job and worked significant uncompensated overtime. The management was two-faced and impossible to please. If you think you are getting paid a bunch of money it's probably because they are going to take it out of your hide in some fashion or other. Expect the worst with AECOM.

AECOM creates a great environment for personal and career growth. The team members are friendly and easy to get along with and the supervisors give you the liberty needed to show your quality of work, in other words...no one is breathing down your neck!
