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

Pros

I would say the pros are they have tuition reimbursement available and they won't have you doing anything outside of your job description without paying you for it. I think it is a great place to work close to retirement because work in minimal. At another place you may do the job of 3 or 4 people at this one you will only do one aspect of that job.

Cons

The downside is it is very difficult to learn new things outside of your job because they won't allow you to. The company is huge with tons of opportunities but I personally don't think they prepare you for those opportunities.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Direct exposure to a lot of different technology.

    Cons

    IT Leadership is basically non-existent. No clear IT path exists and the direction, or lack of direction, depends on who is the favorite pet of the month. All managers have an ego and the group has too many chiefs who are more interested in their own Ego over getting anything done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire and allow new blood to take over.

    Pros

    - Good pay for the position
    - Benefits were good

    Cons

    Company leadership mostly interested in the bottom line but not very concerned about employees' morale. They seem to be struggling to get large contracts in the Dallas market, but that may be due mostly to the economy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on developing the employees and be open to smaller contracts until the economy turns around.
