    Pros

    Good pay
    Depending on contract, can be good bonuses for successfully meeting goals
    Global company so positions available worldwide
    Work with some of the biggest companies around

    Cons

    Job security is only as good as their ability to land the next contract renewal
    Contract renewals often ended up with lay offs and other cost cutting measures
    Depending on contract, may include mandatory overtime or on-call
    Hard to advance past current position without leaving for an entirely different contract

    Advice to Management

    Be aware that the staff you have in one position may have talents more valuable elsewhere

    Pros

    Has a role in just about every engineering industry offering significant opportunities. Multiple offices worldwide offering ability for movement.

    Cons

    Benefits are bare min. Internal discourse between divisions is a joke. Tons of overlapping services leading to infighting and lack of a expertise base to perform quality work. Every office is out for themselves, quality or impact to others be damned.

    Advice to Management

    Offer a competitive benefit package and reign in the overlapping services. It's ridiculous that our biggest competitor at times is ourselves and offices try to execute work without the technical knowledge to do so. URS's biggest asset is name recognition which messes it up for everyone when an office drops the ball on a project outside their expertise.
