Most enjoyable part of the job was the hours. Hours were flexible and open. I really enjoyed working nights.

Great work and room to select career. Love ERGs and Freedom to Grow/Work options. Would recommend to early and mid career professionals as a springboard career

Too Corporate

Pros - Big company. Lots of work, potentialto work on cool projects.Cons - Accountants run this company, not scientists. Too corporate, felt like good science was at the mercy of tight budgets and making a profit.

Flexible and Professional

I was with the company for 18 years, and the company has helped me grow both personally and professionally. The company offers a variety of work settings, which provides maximum flexibility. Good place!

great place to work with good advancement potential

I enjoyed working here. As with most consulting firms, the hours can be long and stressful. The people here were great and I really enjoyed the team I worked with. It felt like everyone was in it together even when things became stressful. Biggest downside was the long hours and diffculty getting time off (but that is true of most places I have worked).

Best workplace

No complaints of the company, benefits are great and very professional work environment. Management is really helpful and supportive in assisting their employees of achieving their goals.

I had the pleasure of working with AECOM on a recent civil engineering project, and I must say, their expertise and professionalism exceeded my expectations. From the initial consultation to the project's successful completion, every step of the way was handled with precision and dedication.

Great Benefits, Great People

Really interesting work and great coworkers. There’s also no mandatory in office time. Corporate communications could be better but overall good place to work.

Easy work

The work is easy, but, can be boring some days.No work/life balance, Management promised 5 day work week, but, that's only on paper, you actually work 6 to 8 days before getting a day off, never get weekends off, and rotates you every month between 1st and 2nd shift.Pay is basic, though for this position it should be much higher.Best part of this job is the benefits and good certification program.

Worst Consulting Firm

Your salary is announced to all employees, it’s part of their project budgeting process and I can only assume meant to drive employees through competition. All work is remote/from home, those that do work at office don’t really speak to anyone. All employees are required to be 85% project billable, but Managers don’t provide nearly enough work. All Managers are unfriendly demanding jerks with no character nor leadership qualities. AECOM claims to have all this work and claim to be #1 firm-reality is the complete opposite. In the Environment Group, AECOM has so much employee turnover that client deadlines are routinely missed and overlooked. Leaders hoard work for themselves and can care less about their employees. AECOM is bizarro world meets the Hunger Games run by feeble short sighted jerks.


decent salary


worst leaders

Poor work-life balance, meager PTO

Poor work-life balance. Management bids low to win projects, and with emphasis on high utilization rates, you're expected to donate your time to get projects done under budget.

Good Benefits, but Your Mileage May Vary

Your day-to-day experience depends on what department/group you work for. But the benefits provided to everyone are good. There's usually food in the office too.The company has trouble retaining young employees across the board, with the vast majority of the employees being senior level. The company pays for PE licensing. They do not pay for FE/EIT licensing, if you don't have it you will be responsible for getting it with your money and time. Not because the corporate policy excludes the FE exam, but because it only mentions the PE exam. They have a new employee program and mentorship available, but it seems like the advice that is offered is very high level and broad. It can be beneficial but there's a lot to learn already, especially if you're a new grad. The company recently implemented a new flexible time off (FTO) policy. You are given a billable hour target which is calculated based on your role, experience level, and the type of work you do. The more hours you're expected to bill, the higher your target is. It basically balances out to how it was before, but now it's more confusing. Overall I think this company is alright. Your department and the people you work with has a much larger impact on your experience.

Great Place to Work

My experience as a Project Manager at the AECOM Miami office has been exceptionally positive. The supportive work environment, dedication to professional growth, and commitment to delivering high-quality projects make it an ideal workplace for anyone looking to excel in their career. I am grateful for the opportunities I've had and the invaluable experiences gained during my time here. I look forward to continuing to contribute to the success of AECOM and its projects in the future.

Thumbs down

Abusive work environment. No wage parity. Force to take mandatory training on personal time. Poor benefits. Made to use personal vehicle to drive hundreds of miles daily.

Entry Level

Good spot for entry level job, not much opportunity for career advancement. Most of the staff were either there for 10-15 years or right out of grad school.

Good Luck getting shifts

Horrible communication. You just have to hope and wish on a shooting star that they will reach out to you with projects. Otherwise you are not likely to hear from them. Giving them stars because the people are awesome. Just need to fix some fundamental issues.

Lots to learn

I really enjoyed my time at AECOM. My coworkers and managers were awesome. The field work was great. There would be downtime but that’s with any job.

A friend of Management

Hope that you are "a chosen one" with AECOM. Otherwise you will go NO WHERE! GET NO lienancy on anything. If you are a pet of Management you will get all kinds of acknowledgement.
