      I have been working at AECOM full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Projects makes your resume look good. There are some really smart senior employees that can teach you a lot, great for becoming an expert in your industry.

      Cons

      No work life balance You are a number, your opinions do not matter. They will always "consider/think" about what you say, but never do anything about it. Even if you remind them repeatedly. HR does not care. Pay is gender bias, women get paid less. They only care about the stats and figures of the business. They will hire to meet their new global growth statistics and not hire to meet the department's needs....

      Advice to Management

      Communication is key!!! Talk to your employees and ask them if there is anything wrong and try to resolve the issues. Their issues matter and make a difference in their quality of life while there. Employees are not robots and like to feel appreciated and need to opportunities to de-stress while at work.
