Good for listing experience on your resume but limited growth and compensation.

Current Employee - Environmental Engineer in Saint Louis, MO
Current Employee - Environmental Engineer in Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Flexible hours. I've always had billable work. I've only had to work some 50-80 hour weeks. Typical is 40 hours.

Cons

Low pay. Many people in the environmental group do not get raises. The typical raise is 1%. Higher than 3% raise is almost unheard of. Limited training opportunities.

    I worked at URS Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people to work with/for. Quality projects. Great place to learn or great place to start late in your career.

    Cons

    Hard to move up from the level you are hired in. A lot of turn over with lower level employees. Layoffs are a possibility. Each branch basically serves as its own company. Not the highest pay for lower level employees. They try to "low ball" you in the interview.

    Advice to Management

    The company needs more cohesion between branches and more chances for employees to advance.

    I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great management with an attitude toward keeping the best people. Great salaries, lots of support for hiring, managing, and marketing to external clients.

    Cons

    They do not provide new laptops, PDAs, and other technology quickly or easily. The internal contracting/invoicing software is far too cumbersome for managing small projects.
