Salary at AECOM
- Average rating for Salary, based on 60 reviews7.1 / 10
What are your thoughts on pay and bonuses at your company?
Doesn't pay as well as others
Dont 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.
Pay is reasonable. Decision to stay at AECOM the length of time I have has been driven by factors other than remuneration.
Slight increase in salary every year. Without bonuses. Given such a difficult market at the moment, this is understandable.
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.
I think that the pay is close to industry standard
Depends on individual circumstances. Pay for some positions could be higher than market average, but it could also be significantly lower.
bonuses scarce at the moment, but I feel that the pay is generous for a new grad
Pay should reflect the effort the individual puts in regardless of their level.
Pay is pretty standard for graduates. Bonuses dont tend to happen.
A lot of improvements lately but still slightly below our competitors
No bonuses is a bummer, pay is slightly above industry average at the graduate level, unsure about growth.
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.
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.
Great for entry level/graduate levels
Pay is adequate for a graduate engineer.
Pay could be more as well as bonuses
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.
Challenging at the lower levels
bonus scheme includes encore awards only
Not very competitive with the market, all though it is suggested that they are.
The initial pay is slightly above market average, however pay progression appears to be much slower than the market.
They encourage good work through smaller bonuses through the year, and really ensure they're remuneration is competitive with the industry.
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.
No bonuses. Pay is average
Really great, am on a much higher salary than I had anticipated as a graduate.
The salary is very fair for graduates. Overtime and living away from home allowances are terrific.
Pay rises can be based on time progression rather than performance sometimes.
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.
Happy with the starting salary
The pay increases are generous. I received a pay increase when I was on parental leave for 14 months, which I was happy with.
Slow to progress.

I received moving allowance when I first started. Also you regularly get work/hire cars to drive during the week. Living away from home allowance when working away are reasonable.

Discounted vouchers for major chains such as Myer, Woolworths, Coles, etc. Discounted health cover options, flu vaccinations and rebated gym membership. Pre-tax donations to charity.
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.
