Senior Scheduler (Former Employee), Mississauga, ON – January 1, 2013
Pros: free lunch once a week
Cons: at my level company does not pay extra hours of work
Employer treated the employee in a professional way. I have gain vast experience in all fiels as far as planning/scheduling job. Management is supportive in their employee. My co-workers are my team. My hardest part in a job coordinating each decipline and some does not know about their job and giving wrong info. My most enjoyable part of the job is – more... to oversee a project that is on schedule and within budget but that does not come along, one has to sacrifice and i would say project to be completed within time. – less
Bad old management and destructive decisions maker
Former engineer and project manager (Former Employee), Calgary, AB – November 9, 2012
Pros: payroll on time
Cons: not friendly environment and tension in most of offices
higher and intermidiate managers take old school management decisions and distruct the company structure, the result is the employees don't trust the company and the managers. Some employees brought millions of dollars to AECOM, but the got laid-off because stupid decision from higher management without looking who cares of AECOM and who is not.
Kindly correct your grammar before posting any comments. BTW, your comments are absurd and wrong.
Job Work/Life Balance
Awesome company to work for.
Senior Structural Engineer (Former Employee), CAMBRIDGDE, – September 17, 2012
Pros: there was the the challenges that came with a very diverse workload.
Cons: i was managed by someone twenty years older than me! he was brilliant but did not have experience.
I carried a mental diary of important meetings coming in the working week. I planned my whole week on Saturday in case I needed to travel on Sunday to be a a meeting venue far from the office (80 miles) on Monday morning. Typical day started with checking emails, briefing junior engineers and draughtspersons. During the day I would attend to various – more... FRIs that came in the form of phone calls or e-mails. Brisk walk to sandwich shop with mates,and sometimes during this time a client would call I would still take the call on mobile. I can not tell anyone to call back after lunch. Sometimes I wolud visit sites early in the day and settle down in the office mid-morning. No days are the same. – less
Productive and fast developping company with diverse business lines
Economist (Former Employee), C30 – May 20, 2012
Flexible working day but usually means work over-time. But one will find the company is dynamic and diverse, so that one can learn much more experience from different areas in such a short time.
The company is full of different background and nice co-workers and the management in international run.
You will find the hardest part of the job is that – more... you would have to finish project deadlines on a tight schedule, but the enjoyable part is also about the deadlines, what make the self-fulfillment for hard work. – less

Resident Engineer (Former Employee), Pretoria, GP – September 14, 2014
Pros: passionate about my work when with a supportive hard working team
Cons: unpaid overtime
I always enjoy my job when there are no hidden agendas at the top management. because it is frustrating when the subordinates doing their level best on the ground whilst there are decisions and deviations that are taken at the top level without communicating with those physically involved on the ground - it creates confusion and one feels stupid.
Quality Control Inspector (Current Employee), North East region – September 13, 2014
Pros: pay is decent
Cons: long hours every day, poor treatment of non-americans and not much care from the company
working in Afghanistan for this company isn't great to be honest yes the pay is decent but if your not American then you are treated like total garbage, what i mean by this is you get treated like a security threat you are not allowed any electronic devices of any kind to contact your loved ones at a time that suits everyone and also hinders chances – more... of progressing within the company. The majority of the upper management team are all in one of those little click things (you know the kind) so chances of moving up there are pretty slim too. – less

Subcontracts Administrator II (Current Employee), VA – August 29, 2014
Pros: fee lunch
Cons: getting everything set-up
I like working for this company, I am learning a lot. How they do business at AECOM. Management is good and my co-workers are great. The hardest part of the job is getting everything set up to go. I think this is the hardest part of my job.
