contract recruiter
Recruiter-contract (Former Employee), Calgary, ABDecember 7, 2015
Pros: working from home
Cons: work is dependant on oil prices
Aecom was going through some growing pains transitioning from FLINT, to URS and then AECOM. Oil prices dropped and they had to re org. has been a difficult time for many.
I loved being able to work from home and still be communicating with candidates regularly as I was recruiting for oil and gas.
The team I was working with was fantastic, although I was not in the office often, we had a very good working relationship.

HR Lead (Former Employee), Calgary, ABNovember 23, 2015
Aecom was a fairly good company to work for. I learned a lot in my time there but they do pay less than you should deserve. The people are great but the upper management is very segmented.

Difficult to advance
Specialist III, Support (Former Employee), Vancouver, BCNovember 5, 2015
Pros: Immediate Mangers
Cons: Executive Management
No room for advancement through training. Always tight on money. Insane corporate culture and process. A silo mentality abounds. Everyone in I.T. too paranoid about their jobs to share helpful information. Executive management doesn't give a "care" for the users at the desk. It's all about lining their pockets and screw the rest.

Lacks integrity
Electrician (Former Employee), Saskatoon, SKOctober 6, 2015
Speaking from the Saskatchewan area only. If you are an electrician looking for a job and not a career that's all aecom is. Forget about your future the project managers walk all over you. Basically a company where the field worker is treated like the lowest form on the earth. Managers forget that field are the ones that bring the money to their pocket. I suggest you keep looking for work and keep aecom away from electrical all together. They are ruining our rights as electricians.

TECHNICAL WRITER - SIMANDOU RAIL PROJECT (Former Employee), Toronto, ONSeptember 24, 2015
Pros: Great Pay and Benefits
Cons: Project based work
AECOM is a great place to work. The pay is great and there is not much down time once you are on a project. The difficult part is when you have to locate new projects to work on once a project finishes.
