I worked at URS Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)
Good experience, particularly for younger engineers and staff. Interesting and big projects, in some offices. Lots of resources. Decent compensation, commensurate with industry. As long as you're billable, you're OK!
Benefits, company-wide and in the office, were steadily decreased over my 5 years, all to save money. Annual reviews are only for show-and-tell, so Management can say they do them to new hires. You'll soon find out they have no real relevance or connection to job performance, compensation, or promotion. Career paths are a joke. The only promotions are for people that can bring in new work. You can get promoted to Management if you're a good talker or have a good golf game. Great incubator for the Peter Principal! The URS Project Manager Certification program is a joke. Anyone and everyone is a PM sooner or later. Too many wanna' be managers, not enough workers. Management has a "Job Shop" mentality. Hire and fire the help at will, as needed!. Don't plan on a career here. You'll be let go as soon as you're unbillable for a few days! No work sharing among offices. Plenty of work in one office; layoffs in another. Expect to be asked to use sick time and vacation to keep you're job, even though you'll still be let go when its used up. This is also against company policy, but Management turns a blind eye when going against policy benefits the bottom line! Management talks big to employees about ethics and proper billing for payroll, particularly for Federal work and fear of Federal audits, knows better what the employees are asked to do to keep their jobs!
