      Pros

      URS Federal Services Division was a great place to work. Very talented and competent professionals who worked collaboratively on many projects in support of DOD Tasks.

      Cons

      AECOM bought URS in late 2014. The culture has changed and the employees are no longer valued as they were when at URS. The bottom line and the board room is having too much say now.

          ALL GOOD TREATED VERY WELL BUSY COMPANY WITH HIGH WORK ETHIC and good work satisfaction after completed projects

          Cons

          Sometimes very busy and not alot of support for new graduates struggling with work load therefore more help would be required

            Pros

            Lots of opportunity to work on a multitude of different projects with colleagues that are helpful and friendly.

            Cons

            Building Surveying is not the biggest earner for the company so therefore they cherry pick their jobs which can make experience for APC candidates quite limited. There could however be options to relocate to bridge gaps in diary/experience.

              Pros

              They work on great projects and have some genuinely smart and energized people working there. The strategy for growth is exciting.

              Cons

              No tough conversations with people or making the tough decisions. Politics are rife, which makes moving forward with actions a nightmare. People are more interested in protecting fiefdoms than actually achieving progress in improving the business. Far too many cooks in this kitchen.

              We are sorry to hear about your experience with us here at AECOM, noting in particular the toxic politics that you have mentioned. Please can we ask you to reach out to your business line's HR Manager so that you can discuss your experiences in more detail and ensure that you are fully supported moving forward. Thank you AECOM Talent Acquisition

                Pros

                Great people to work with day to day Nice office space I have been impressed by PDD regional management Flexible schedules for some people (doesn't always work and depends on your supervisor and workload)

                Cons

                I think it really varies by office - my office is not very well-run and local management is not very good - I've heard better things about other offices Very low morale - economic times are tough, but employees need better incentive to do good work than just being "lucky to even have a job" Professional development opportunities exist, but they are very difficult for employees to access The opportunity to work with other offices Project management systems (APIC) and ISO are a nightmare for projects that don't have multi-million dollar contracts- cumbersome and take away from quality of work Top heavy organization structure Horrible workload management

                  Lots of learning opportunities since the types of projects are such large scale and work across the public and private sectors

                  Cons

                  the company is too big

                    Pros

                    AECOM is a large global company that has opportunities across the world if you are interested in working in and experiencing other parts of the world. Some great people work here and can be excellent resources if you seek them out.

                    Cons

                    Too large! This company has totally lost their employee engagement culture once shared by some of the legacy operating companies that were melted together into one AECOM. Mixed messages come out from the CEO stating how well we are doing yet an hour later layoffs are happening. There has been little communication regarding staff reductions; leaving everyone else paranoid. Many managers are not well trained, lack people skills, and are just flat out not leaders. Everything is becoming prescriptive around here - no room for creativity and sharing ideas. Not what was promised to many when their former companies were purchased.

                      Pros

                      There are still some good people left at the company that are great to work with and mentor junior staff.

                      Cons

                      Corporate management is in a different state and has little to no involvement in generating or keeping local business interests. As a result projects are drying up and good people are leaving the company in droves. Work life balance was hard and some projects keep you away from home for weeks at a time. Overall office moral is at an all time low. Little to no opportunity for advancement.

                        Pros

                        - I get to work with some highly skilled and knowledgeable individuals from different facets of the engineering community. - I get to work on some of the most rewarding projects where the finish product enriches human lives abundantly.

                        Cons

                        - as common in large organizations, having immediate access to the most pertinent information can be a bit of a lag; nothing unusual.

                      If asked what type of management style to you prefer? How do you feel about micromanagement? How do you answer this professionally? Nobody likes micromanagement so why ask? Maybe bc the manager there does?

                      In an interview is it a good practice to draw examples for answering situational questions from the most recent and relevant experience or should I draw examples from other previous experiences as well?
