I have been working at URS Corporation as a contractor (more than a year)

Pros

International platform; solid leadership; great HR staff.

Cons

In the SE region, there is no help with navigating a professional move within the Company. You are basically on your own. There is the Corporate website that offers job openings and that's about all the help you get.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Create a network, company-wide that would afford those in contract positions to be able to access openings for permanent hire within.

    Pros

    Activities to bring people together

    Cons

    Watch out - they LIE at Interviews. They leave out details. They will make the position sound better than the reality. They SHOULD tell prospective Employees the reality so they can make an informed decision.
    Mgmt manipulates.
    They aggressive push to work you like a dog (if they can push an engineer to work 60 or 80 hours, but only pay them for 40 hours, well it just benefits the Employer).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lying, manipulating, and being hostile.
    Be honest, up front and respectful.
