What insiders say about…
It varies depending on the project you are involve
I like that the higher up management do not have separate offices. We all sit together. Everybody is friendly and we have regular get together. Friday fortnightly office drinks are great for catching up.
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.
AECOM offers a great degree of flexibility relating to work hours. Historically I have probably worked longer hours than I needed to in hindsight.
Team leaders are excellent and engage their team. Business leaders are often less interested in dealing directly with employees. Unfortunately, the business leaders have all the power when it comes to pay, conditions, and many of the opportunities.
GDP was postponed last year due to ePM rollout.
It takes a long time to be given responsibility and to move up. There are a lot of people that have been here a long time which makes growth and promotions hard to come by.
AECOM has a published commitment to closing the gender pay gap, recruiting and promoting more women. Also provides flexible work opportunities. Compared to other engineering companies I think we are probably leading in this area, with the Australia & New Zealand Managing Director and many other senior staff female
AECOM has a Reconciliation Action Plan which involves providing work experience opportunities to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island students, with the aim of developing these students to graduates.
CSR initiatives include sponsorship of Engineers without borders, Smith Family, plus matching employee donations to disaster relief appeals, Movember etc. They organise shuttles to red cross blood donation and facilitate pre-tax charity donations
Lots of plants in the building, natural lighting, very good facilities including a cycle centre. Dress code is usual engineering office wear.
