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

    Pros

    Pay is OK, flexible schedule (when not having to work overtime - which comes in waves)

    Cons

    Work is either feast or famine, lack of vision and engagement of employees, quick to lay-off, tons of policies (some are good) - but local office management is not held accountable to them, very average to sub-par benefits (they provide the bare min. compared to competitors)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what URS wants to be - the best at what? Then engage and empower your employees in that vision. Just saying "we're the biggest provider of AEC services, etc." is uninspiring.Develop an employee engagement framework and ensure that all local management follows through.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, stable company, opportunity for growth if you can work on the right projects.

    Cons

    Minimal raises though they say how great profits are. Lots of pressure to be billable, no job security, staff is laid off without notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More employee recognition beyond Project Managers on high profile projects.

    Doesn't Recommend
