    Pros

    There is some highly talented colleagues at URS (formerly WGI).

    Cons

    Once WGI was purchased by URS, it has felt more beauracratic. Also, their approach to contracts is extremely conservative, so work tends to be slow at times. Some of the senior management (execs as well) are not quality people - they are ful of themselves and not easy to get along with. The structure of the organization needs to be reworked, and some of the exec positions need to be elimintaed in order to enhance communication.

    Pros

    Group discounts for employees (e.g., insurance, mobile service, etc.)

    Cons

    Salary adjustments don't cover COLA
    No bonuses
    Oppressive work schedule/demands
    ZERO recognition that life exists outside of the office
    Little to no recognition of effort (in fact, others take the credit)
    Mid-year and year-end reviews are effectively a waste of time (the results aren't considered)
    Senior management has no clue how to manage PEOPLE
    As a publicly-traded company, all that matters is the bottom line
    Employee satisfaction/retention doesn't matter
