I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good individuals with good intentions
Nice environment, good work/life balance.
They have good and interesting projects

Cons

They operate like a Federal Government, bureaucracy and slow moving.

Due to budget cuts URS will fire any person regardless they work for the company for 15, 20 or 25 years,
within 10 minutes the person is out of the office and you will never see that person again.
The people that left didn't know anything about it, there is was no internal communication to let the rest of the team know that someone left the company, it, no one will talk about it.
Is really hard to build trust, pride or commitment, when you see this behaviour.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest and authentic about who you really are and what you really care about, don't preach what you don't believe on.

    Former Employee - Engineer IV in Warrenville, IL

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

    Pros

    Pay was great at the start, and promotions come quickly at first
    Plenty of knowledgeable resources at the main offices.
    Work life balance is better at main offices where there are a large pool of available resources

    Cons

    promotions slow down once you hit 5 years and become very infrequent there after.
    Smaller field offices often get hand-me down furniture and equipment from main offices.
    Field offices are very often forgotten by senior management in the main office.
    work life balance at field offices can vary from week to week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a 3 tiered engineering system that has entry level, mid level, and senior level engineering positions.
    Pay more attention to the feild offices.
    Stop slashing benefits in the name of "Corporate synergy"
