Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Santa Barbara, CA

I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Excellent management, diverse projects focusing mostly on power, oil & gas and aerospace. The office has a pretty good after-hours program and is very involved with charities, fund raising and local community support.

Access to Sr. leadership is good... and the folks who aren't overwhelmed typically take the time to talk about career goals, business and future opportunities.

I've never been told that I couldn't get training if it can be applied to my work or projects... and everyone is provided the opportunity to grow.

Cons

This office has a few 'toxic' employees, and since they are fairly successful, haven't been asked to change their ways unfortunately. There are a couple of under-performers who really stick out like sore thumbs, why they aren't gone remians a mystery to me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate the good and bad.... we can take it. No need to sugar-coat things.

    I worked at URS Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Friendly operations personnel and management knowing what they want and how to get there.

    Cons

    Has no idea of configuration management from an engineering aspect. Still uses paper and hand documentation in an inert filing system. Instead of microfiche, Microstation, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to understand communication instead of self preservation. Does not support continued employment and retirement.
