"I've been an architect/contractor for over forty years. My work at Aecom has been in the field of industrial building complexes, doing architectural design, code research, detailing, permitting and specification production. I have a god work ethhic and enjoy working in my profession and I am a self-modivated person."
"I worked for a company that was acquired by AECOM a few years ago. They (AECOM) said the opportunities would improve, but I haven't seen that yet. A number of long-time employees, and friends, left soon after the merger. The project management and reporting systems are not user friendly. I don't feel like I have much in common with my co-workers, and I am sometimes without work because I "make too much" for some projects, but trying to get away from my manager has been tough. I am treated like I am "on call", and my manager doesn't want to let me do anything else. I had to go over his head to get on the project I am on now. Once this ends, I really fear for my future due to possible lack of billability. At least in my home office, teleworking is allowed. This company doesn't seem to be too fond of transferring existing employees to other projects where there is a good skill fit. The pay is so-so, although I have heard of some low-ball offers. AECOM stripped away one of our holidays and capped how much paid time off is allowed to be accumulated and refuses to pay out hours as the old company would. The 401(k) is better than what we had before in terms of fees and selection of investments."
