Former Employee - Draftsman in Denver, CO
Former Employee - Draftsman in Denver, CO

I worked at URS Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Plenty of potential to expand ones career. many areas for growth (when company is flourishing), great people to work with.

Cons

Publicly traded company...have stockholders to satisfy!!! Employees can be seen more as a profit/loss factors than as meaningful contributor to the Co. Billability is KING!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect the "cogs" (employees) more!! Be proactive rather than trying to apply a "one size fits all" philosophy to management.

    Current Employee - Project Engineer in Austin, TX

    I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Steady paychecks, once you are in the system (took me 9 weeks initially)

    Cons

    At the international level, one has to try and work with numerous URS cyber people, located in many time zones all over the place. HQ in San Francisco, local offices all over, most of the processing in Houston or Austin Texas.
    With the firm, there are no principles or real values, its mission is simply to make money. Hard to live with year after year. No soul.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limit the chain of comand.

    I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wage is above local average

    Cons

    Benefits are fair to poor and expensive.
    Get 16 hours of sick time and 80 hours of vacation per year AND company scheduled 72 hours of that for shutdowns, excess holiday hours, and extended holidays.
    Company lets the government agency run over them and their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You cannot treat long-term lease employees like temps with benefits. We are sick and tired of it all.
