Working Hours at AECOM

How flexible is your company when it comes to hours?

Hours are flexible, if you need to leave early one day you can make up the time another.

AECOM offers a great degree of flexibility relating to work hours. Historically I have probably worked longer hours than I needed to in hindsight.
Experienced, Brisbane
45 to 50 hours per week. reasonable
Experienced, Brisbane
Sometimes I would work more than 15hrs a day when work required; sometimes I could take days off to look after my sick kids. I can also work from home if I needed to.
Experienced, brisbane
Work a flexible 4 day week with the option to work a fifth day when it gets busy and suits my family commitments
Executive, Sydney
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

Working hours are flexible. Interesting question to ask about hours spent 'in' the office. A large amount of work time is now spent outside office hours via smartphones.
Experienced, Melbourne
Flexibility is the new norm. Working in project offices is different where long hours are the norm.

Flexible work hours, but the dedicated team has high expectations
Graduate, Townsville
Typical work hours are 40 hours a week. The company is very flexible and allows its employees to work at a time that suits them and their lifestyle
Graduate, Adelaide
There are times where I have been overloaded with projects and sometime I find myself light on work.
Graduate, Sydney
There’s no set hours that i need to be in the office, so long as it works for everyone. Currently working 8 till 530 with an hour lunch and a few breaks.
Graduate, Brisbane
Can be demanding depending the project
Graduate, Sydney
Very flexible. I work however many hours it takes to get the job done well.
Graduate, Sydney
Contract for 40 hours - I believe it should be 38 hours. Usually end up working more than 42 hours a week. Due to the work culture, I generally feel guilty when leaving on time. Flexible working and working remotely is a big plus.
Graduate, Melbourne
AECOM promotes flexible working hours and the ability to work from home. However it is expected that people will put in longer hours where it is needed. I have spent the last year working 60+ hour weeks on a site project. Most of my team spends 50+ hour weeks in the office because we are so busy.

Flexibility is developing at a rapid pace. Work hours generally 9 - 10 hours per day.
Graduate, Mackay
Flexible with hours. 40 hour week + reasonable amount of overtime
Graduate, Melbourne
40 hours, no extra has really been required so far
Graduate, Brisbane
40 hour weeks with flexible hours
Graduate, PERTH
In Brisbane, moderate hours and excellent flexibility. In Sydney and Melbourne, significantly longer hours for about the same rewards. Still flexible, if you can fit in all the necessary hours.
Midlevel, Brisbane
Flexible working is encouraged
Midlevel, Melbourne
Very flexible between working from home and balancing family / other commitments. Lots of flexible work arrangements that are encourage by senior management
Midlevel, Newcastle
Flexible.
Graduate, Sydney
OK. In most cases you are only "allowed" to bill 40 hours even if you are doing 50-60 due to project constraints ie 3 person team doing a 5 person job.
Graduate, Sydney
The company stipulates a flexible hours policy, however within the first 3 weeks of joining the company, the team I was in had me work a weekend, and some weekdays were till 10pm with the team. This is obviously not commensurate with the initial agreement, but would be fine if there was a form of compensation readily available.
Graduate, Sydney
The hours are very flexible, and they tailor where you work (office or field) based on your feedback.
Graduate, Melbourne
As long as you get your 40 hours done there is no issue, although for grads you need to be taught how to do your job so generally you stick to the 8-5 days. You can work from home and complete your week as you see fit, it just doesn't make sense to do so early on for reasons outlined above.
Graduate, Melbourne
Very flexible. for a full time employee, at least 40 hours
Graduate, Melbourne
Very flexible, you put in the work where it is needed.
Graduate, Brisbane
The company is very flexible in regard to when hours are worked.
Graduate, Sydney
Extremely flexible. As long as I can charge 40 working hours, this can be at any time of day.
Graduate, Brisbane
40hr working week but usually extends longer than that including some weekend work at home.
Midlevel, Newcastle
Start and end times are flexible which is great. Last year the number of hours worked was increased from 37.5hrs/week to 40hrs/week with not a whole lot of notice and few avenues to refuse. This becomes even more difficult when asked to do overtime while balancing other commitments outside the office. AECOM is looking to increase the contingent workforce but I feel that is an insecure option for me at the moment.

40 hours per week. Flexible work times. Can re-negotiate number of days worked, but in general 40 hours per week for a full time employee is too much.
Graduate, Brisbane
I work 3 days per week, two in the office and one at home. I don't have to work 8 hours straight- I can complete 3 days work over 5 days. With a young child this is very convenient to me.
Graduate, Sydney
40 hours a week. Flexible work hours.
Graduate, Brisbane
Standard work hours are 40 hours/week. However usually spend around 45+ hours at work. That being said there are a lot of flexible hours options available such as working from home, working part time, etc
