- 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…
Given a great deal of responsibility from day one, including communications with clients
Friendly people both in the office and after hours. There is almost always time for a coffee and a chat. Many staff play sport together, catch up after work for drinks, and form strong friendships that endure once they change offices or leave AECOM.

What my previous experience was. Where I would like to work in their team. What did I want to get out of the role. What my professional interests were.
Try as hard as you can to get experience prior to applying. This makes an enormous impact on your ability to be able to respond to the work you may do, as you actually have an idea of what it entails. Also just be yourself and don't try to be someone you aren't, fake people are easy to spot. Plus you'll get caught out if you lie, I haven't but it would be obvious as to those who have experience and those that don't. This is of course not to say you cannot get in without experience. You just realise the value of the experience once you have it and you also gain confidence from your experience if you are good at what you do.
Flexibility is the new norm. Working in project offices is different where long hours are the norm.
Doesn't pay as well as others
Varies on the person, but if you push carefully you can build a consistent rapport with some managers. They will not necessarily actively go to each person individually and interact with them. Squeaky wheel
Formal training is a bit much, I'm a firm believer of learning on the job
I was at the company for 10 months before I got my first promotion. If you work hard enough and impress everyone they will show you the recognition that you deserve.
The parental leave package is reasonable, and my return to work after baby was very smooth and it all happened at my pace. AECOM is very culturally diverse and we have employees from all around the world.
Pro-Bono services; secondment of staff to charitable organisations; matching staff donations on charity drives;1 day volunteer leave for all staff; etc.
Location and facilities are amazing - I love coming to work and spending time in the office.
There are various green initiatives, and they are advertised monthly. As an environmental consultant, they contribute more to sustainability externally than internally, because people are often too busy to keep it front of mind all the time.Join us to bookmark!
