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

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.

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

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

Overworked and underpaid.
No Comment (for obvious reasons) (Current Employee), Coral Gables, FLAugust 20, 2013
Pros: alternate work schedule (when you don't have to work on your day off). benefits, experience on different types of projects.
Cons: intense workload, long hours, management, lack of organization, lack of a sense of team, low pay compared to others in the same field for the amount of work you're expected to perform.
Where do I start.

It was great at first, a big consulting firm, lots of good experience, fair hourly salary with plenty of overtime. Then came the workload. Then came the office mergers, now you're suddenly adding 3 more hours of travel time to your day driving to a different office. Then comes an adjustment to your wage/salary.

Honestly, you've probably – more... already heard of how it can be in Corporate America. No-one cares about you, you're just a number. Always remember that. You're looked at as nothing more than a robot and expected to practically work for free, work on your days off, do training on days off and in your spare time, etc. This company is no different.

Although the people I worked with were very nice, smart and fun to be around, the workload, red tape, actions (or in some cases the lack there of) of some of the upper management, lack of a decent work life balance and disorganization eventually destroys what little is left of your drive/motivation, not to mention your soul. – less

At 7.00 o clock in the morning we starting at work the first of all we have to signing after that we have to go to our lead or senior to talk with him about job or if we doesn't have a truck to work on it he have to bring another truck to us and when truck coming the first thing what we going to do is to read one small book the name is 2404 [ twenty – more... for o four ] and after that we started to do the job and to repair and maintain in correct way army trucks to be ready for mission. I have learned a lot of things but the most of important is to read and understand 2404 or how to find defects. The menagement was good . the co-workers they were the greatest thing what I have see on this company. the hardest part of the job was when we sometimes have to work on old trucks.the most enjoyable part of the job was when we worked all nationalities together and we make ready seven or eight trucks to go out for army. – less

Cons: no job security
I enjoyed working at AECOM. I had a great manager who would tell me about his days as a child. I loved listening to his stories and he shared his knowlegde of engineering. I enjoyed putting work down on paper then seeing the creationf of what it would be ater it was built. Sometimes, we had to work overtime but I didn't mind that. That's why there was – more... unlimited coffee! The hardest part of the job was when there was no work. It makes a day extremely long. – less
