Awful management, bullying is rife
Land Surveyor (Former Employee) – Swindon, Wiltshire – 4 December 2018
AECOM in the South-west was atrocious, the first year there was fun, they encouraged development etc. but soon after, I learned that HR and management was a mess - a lot of bullying went on and people's ideas and work-life balance was a clear indicator that stress, caused by bad leadership and project management, was a key factor.
Nobody listened to the employee handbook unless it suited them, and it was generally a bad place to work - would not recommend. Wages were poor and every review, most people were kicked down to prevent a payrise, and if you were lucky, you may have gotten a 3% payrise.
Juniors who were new to AECOM in these regional offices assumed this is normal behaviour and a lot of people have resigned, which is either unrecognised or ignored when improvements could have been made.
Good management does exist but is rare, good benefits
Long hours, poor management, no interpersonal care from HR or senior management
