Fine if you prefer the "status quo"

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.

    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

    Try to make sure each site is actually utilizing all of the wonderful practices you have in place.
