- Flexibility to take time off
- Diversity of work and all the people are great to work with. company seems to win lots of work
- The opportunities afforded to me as a young engineer. Working with a great team of motivated professionals.
- Multi discipline and international company
- Flexible time and working arrangement, good working environment.
- Be prepared for significant changes in processes and procedures. Although this can be viewed as a positive, as it is a reflection of the importance the company places on developing these.
- Too many levels of management
- Clunky Processes/Systems. the inertia that comes with a company of this scale
- High pressure
- The fluctuating working hours
What insiders say about…
Carryout design work and provide technical support to clients
Friendly and cooperative in the office but not very interactive after work
It was quite lengthy and took a lot of patience in between process and stages.
Why do you want to work for AECOM? What motivates you? What sort of projects interest you?
Be honest and genuine about what you like and dislike.
I probably work close to 50 hours a week, which is more than most other employees. My additional effort is thanked and rewarded. AECOM has a strong focus on providing flexible working arrangements, eg no set start or finish times, ability to work from home
Pay should reflect the effort the individual puts in regardless of their level.
Event and membership expenses
Communication is generally good. For graduates there is access to mentoring. A well balance performance and reward system.
As a new grad, I have undertaken training to get to know the company, their values (particularly regarding safety) and the procedures they use. So far, this has been very straight forward. I know there will be future opportunities for further training and this is something I am looking forward to.
Good work is always recognised and rewarded, they also encourage you to improve your skills constantly so you can move upwards easily
AECOM employs the best person for the job, which I think is the right approach. They do employ women who are fit for the roles they undertake and are willing to promote women to senior management when they are the right fit. Flexible hours and move towards more contractors has the potential to work better for primary care-givers (both men and women). As more engineers move internationally, AECOM have employed people from a range of cultural backgrounds.
There are give back programs, and they don't try to impede other CSR initiatives like Engineers Without Borders if it doesn't conflict with any business requirements. However, the various activities are disjointed, and there is poor communication of what occurs. This is something that is recognised by people at the working level, although how high up in the seniority it goes is unclear.
Office location is fantastic, dress code is formal
