Salary at AECOM

What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?

Doesn't pay as well as others
Midlevel, Cairns
Don’t know if there are bonuses but I hope one day. Pay is good, but industry fluctuates quickly so more often than not you are left behind the market.
Midlevel, Melbourne
Pay is reasonable. Decision to stay at AECOM the length of time I have has been driven by factors other than remuneration.
Experienced, Brisbane
Slight increase in salary every year. Without bonuses. Given such a difficult market at the moment, this is understandable.
Experienced, brisbane
Took a significant pay cut to join AECOM due to minimal bonuses on offer compared to prior employers or alternative offers. Choose to prioritise time with kids over pay at this point in life.
Executive, Sydney
I think that the pay is close to industry standard
Midlevel, Melbourne
Depends on individual circumstances. Pay for some positions could be higher than market average, but it could also be significantly lower.
Experienced, Sydney
bonuses scarce at the moment, but I feel that the pay is generous for a new grad
Graduate, Townsville
Very reasonable
Graduate, Adelaide
Pay should reflect the effort the individual puts in regardless of their level.
Graduate, Sydney
Pay is pretty standard for graduates. Bonuses don’t tend to happen.
Graduate, Brisbane
A lot of improvements lately but still slightly below our competitors
Graduate, Sydney
No bonuses is a bummer, pay is slightly above industry average at the graduate level, unsure about growth.
Graduate, Sydney
Pay is good, did not get a pay rise at the usual time as I was not recruited in the normal graduate cycle which means I will be working for 17months before I get my first pay rise and performance appraisal.
Graduate, Melbourne
Pay is good if you are good at negotiating it. OK if not. Sydney is an expensive place to live but I can afford to rent a nice apartment within walking distance of the CBD.
Midlevel, Sydney
Great for entry level/graduate levels
Graduate, Newcastle
Pay is adequate for a graduate engineer.
Graduate, Mackay
Pay could be more as well as bonuses
Graduate, PERTH
Graduate pay is good, probably above average for the industry. Professional level pay is below average, and the process by which annual pay increases are decided seems unclear and inconsistent. There is a perception that politics matters more than performance. There is a perception that the company is unwilling to increase pay even when the external market is doing well.
Midlevel, Brisbane
Challenging at the lower levels
Midlevel, Melbourne
bonus scheme includes encore awards only
Graduate, Sydney
Not very competitive with the market, all though it is suggested that they are.
Graduate, Sydney
The initial pay is slightly above market average, however pay progression appears to be much slower than the market.
Graduate, Sydney
They encourage good work through smaller bonuses through the year, and really ensure they're remuneration is competitive with the industry.
Graduate, Melbourne
Pay is good, but engineering in general is not as high as I expected. Pay isn't the main factor when you are a grad anyway, it's nice but you should be focusing on learning as much as you can.
Graduate, Melbourne
No bonuses. Pay is average
Graduate, Melbourne
Really great, am on a much higher salary than I had anticipated as a graduate.
Graduate, Brisbane
The salary is very fair for graduates. Overtime and living away from home allowances are terrific.
Graduate, Brisbane
Pay rises can be based on time progression rather than performance sometimes.
Midlevel, Newcastle
I believe I am paid fairly for the hours that I claim and I am encouraged to claim all of the hours that I work. I believe that people who work hard and perform well are rewarded for it. New bonus schemes have been introduced lately but I have not yet been involved.
Midlevel, Rockhampton
Happy with the starting salary
Graduate, Brisbane
The pay increases are generous. I received a pay increase when I was on parental leave for 14 months, which I was happy with.
Graduate, Sydney
Slow to progress.

On one difficult project our supervisor took us out for a lunch afterwards to celebrate our hard work. It was very nice. I once got sick at the office and the office sent a safety officer home to Wollongong with me in a taxi.
