I worked at URS Corporation as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

Compensation was very good, recognition given constantly, timely increases.

Cons

HR wasn't always expedient, job security, performance reviews were shaky at best but this is because it was done by the client, more oversight was needed to be fair.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get more involved with employee development to make contract more sucessful

    I worked at URS Corporation full-time

    Pros

    Good technical experts in their respective fields

    Cons

    Office management doesn't communicate the office direction to the staff.
    Business decisions don't appear logical. The only way it is logical is if there is something they're not telling the staff.
    No opportunity for advancement.
    Office management isn't forward thinking. 1 week of low sold time will get you laid off irrespective of the future outlook.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The office is under performing and has been for some time. URS corporate should replace the entire office management staff or close the office.
    Everyone knows that the office is not performing well, don't insult the staff at town hall meetings by sugar coating the situation.

    I worked at URS Corporation as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Never had a check bounce. I have heard that my bad experiences are do not exist in most of the company. Good way to get into Department of Energy (DOE) complex.

    Cons

    No accountability which causes problems in pretty much every area. Common practice to ignore rules because of schedule pressure or laziness. Constant struggle to take the extra 5 minutes to do the right thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold people accountable.
