Great work-life balance, okay salary, little interest in development
Graduate Engineer (Former Employee) – Altrincham, Greater Manchester – 28 March 2018
My time with AECOM was mixed. Sometimes it was great, working on big and important projects, and sometimes I was stuck doing a technician's task because my managers couldn't allocate me enough work. The pay is okay - a little on the lower end, but they compensate for it with a nice benefits package.
AECOM is a great place for those who wish to travel, relocate or go live/work in another country. However, my experience when it comes to personal and professional development is pretty negative. I was often denied CPD opportunities because my manager thought that "the resources were better spent elsewhere" which is very damaging for anyone who looks to develop their career rapidly.
Good projects, many opportunities for relocation/travel, good benefits package, good work-life balance
Lower-than-average salaries, very little opportunity for advancement, you are just a number amongst 100, 000 others
