No security
Awful bullying management, once over 45 you’re finished - or been there a couple of years. No loyalty on either side. Upside is good projects and some great colleagues at the top of their game prepare to work from home
Pros
Flexible
Cons
No security or loyalty to staff

Lots of work
There is very little time for job/life balance. Very exciting projects and employs great technical people. There is opportunity to move around but career progression is limited to those who can win business.

Confused strategy
The management seem to lurch from one great idea to the next, not achieving what they set out to do.

The silo culture results in a lot of missed opportunities for a better client solution and better projects overall.

Good working environment
Learned how to become a competent engineer, put me through my qualifications was a nice place to work. The management team however doesn't appreciate the work put in and is reflected in performance reviews

The company ethos is brilliant shame the managers dont implement it
If you can start young here and work your way up the posibilites seem very good and they obviously reward loyalty , if you come to this company at a mid point in your career there doesn't seem to be the same support.
Very little to no training , very little to no feedback from middle management . Its a shame because the offerings of the company and the ethos they want to spread is very positive , it just doesn't seem to get implemented

Good company to work for as long as your business unit is making a lot of money for the shareholders.
No / low reward.

No / low promotion

Apraisal system is typical bell curve

too large and overly corporate working environment
The company is very large circa 100 000 personnel worldwide therefore a culture of being nothing more than a worker ant or number prevails. Salaries are not market competitive and annual increases usually fall below annual inflation.

Na
Started off as being a very wonderful place to work but over time I realised that there is no room to progress your career.

In the end there isn't were job cuts, new bosses and no morale.

It was a fun and interesing experince at my time there.
What I would usually do is I would shadow a manager, and he would show me techniques that he would use and show the day to day of a office job life. what I enjoyed about that job is learning more about others and how they enjoy there time there.

Professional and organised workplace
I got a work placement with AECOM for a week and everyday was different and enjoyable. They had planned for me to be involved in all the different teams that I was interested in. I enjoyed meeting everyone working there and discussing what their role in the business was. All employees were very welcoming and supportive throughout my visit.

A culture of collaboration and support
Well-connected workplace, working remotely with teams across the UK. Friendly colleagues across many teams and levels of superiority, with people happy to answer questions and give up time to offer support.

Good flexibility with start/finish times around core hours, time off in lieu to balance out long days on site visits. Plenty of opportunity to get involved with a variety of projects. Management sensitive to personal development goals and to dissatisfaction with current role, encouraged to work in alternative team with more appropriate roles.
Pros
Colleagues generous with support
