One of the 10 worst companies in the world, you don't get this easily
Project Engineer (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 14 October 2018
As an employee worked here for few years, the company has changed a lot in the past few years. The management only treats you like a number, they don't care about you, you don't feel you are valued as a member and avoid this company if you can. Really awkward/cold working atmosphere in this company especially if you work with senior management. Most senior managers are so fake. You put your hard work in and that's it.
Management (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 24 April 2018
Came from Flint Energy Services it was a good company with lots of opportunity to advance and had knowledgeable management learn from. Once URS then Aecom bought them out most management left or were dismissed, the opportunities diminished and employees began to feel more like a number then part of a productive organization. They started selling off key parts of the business as the construction division of the company does not fit the engineering "cubical style" business model.
If your a yes man you'll do great
Uncertain job security, Management unwilling to make a decisions always pointing a finger else where.

They pay particularly low, I have never been paid so low. The in town 10-4 shift is hard for a parent, They made us strip the cable and put it in a pile so the scraps, all of the scraps, should be taken infer reimbursement, they even wanted the shield off the tech cable in a pile, it was bizarre.
Well organized with all the Proper Procedures in place.
QC Manager / Technical Services Lead (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 26 September 2017
This company has one of the best QA/QC programs that I have ever worked with. As with all large companies there is a small problem with getting the field level construction personnel to buy into the procedures put in place to ensure compliance to the QC program. The old saying "If you are relying on Quality to check your work it is to late". This is not just relevant to this company as it seems to be the norm these days.
Financial Analyst (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 29 March 2017
This company is just like any other companies out there - struggling, but still floating and is trying to make waves.
And just like any other business out there in this challenging times, this company goes through a lot of transitional phases brought about by the decisions of the head honchos to keep the company survive and competive in the market.
Of course, there are good and bad decisions but at the end of the day, an employee SHOULD REALIZE that everyone is JUST a number to the company's books and that he or she should: 1. Improve his or her craft in whatever department, field, or group he or she is working in; 2. Learn and get the most knowledge he or she can get from his or her job; 3. Take care of his or her own career; 4. Cherish the people you work with no matter how seemingly outlandish they are to you
With all the retrenchments and axing out of people that are happening, you would not be surprised that today you are axed out and tomorrow, the people who axed you out will also be axed out. It's that vicious cycle...
Civil Technologist - Transportation (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 27 November 2016
Drafting and Design highway and bridge structures. I learned that every company has good manager and bad manager. When encounter bad manager, try to work with other department where good manager exist. Co-workers are very helpful. The hardest part of the job is to find learning opportunities from Structural Supervisor. The most enjoyable part of the job is working with Roadway Lead because he is a model of a good manager that I can learn from.
Good Lead in Civil Highway Team and many good co-workers

They Gave me the opportunity to try new things and responsibility to do things on my own which allowed me to learn a lot more than at previous jobs. The supervision was also excellent, it is a well managed company.
Mechanical Engineer (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 13 May 2015
generally Aecom is a good place to work. No too much complaints. There is no communication between upper level managers and mid level and low level workers. Lack of projects to do while I was working there.
too many managers, no management. high turn over rate.
I love working at AECOM because, even though there are bosses, everyone is treated the same. The VPs, District Managers, Managers, etc all work together. No one thinks of themselves as better as another.
