I worked at URS Corporation full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

One of the largest engineering companies in the world. URS has systems and procedures in place to minimize and manage risks, and does a good job at it. Workers are professional and tend to work hard, socialize little on the job, and go home exactly at quitting time. Overtime tends to be compensated, even for professional level employees.

Cons

If you want risk and excitement, this is not the place to be.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire only employees who are satisfied with slow progress, not people who are aggressive and risk-takers.

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

    Pros

    Lots of potential opportunities, if you can get in on them or at least know about them, and a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    A bit too big. Poor communication from senior and middle management to field employees. Tends to be somewhat bureaucratic - like working for a 'private' government. Decent benefits, though those have gone down-hill from what they used to be. Also tends to be, or at least feels like, it is everyone for themselves.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate career opportunities and training benefits to field/off-site employees. Loosen up on the bureaucracy. There are lots of good, talented employees who would do well if they knew potential mobility options available to them.
