I have been working at URS Corporation, an AECOM company full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Great management with an attitude toward keeping the best people. Great salaries, lots of support for hiring, managing, and marketing to external clients.

Cons

They do not provide new laptops, PDAs, and other technology quickly or easily. The internal contracting/invoicing software is far too cumbersome for managing small projects.

    Pros

    My manager and colleagues were a pleasure to work with. By todays standard they have good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    There's no such thing as a perfect company to work for however URS Dallas is a total nightmare. The name of the game is to remain billable and it is up to each employee to find a project to work on without any internal help. If you aren't billable then your head is on the chopping block and you are reduced to walking around the office begging managers for a project to charge your time to. This is referred to "Pimping yourself out" by many employees. Morale doesn't exist here anymore and "executive row" is more concerned about holding on to power than developing a business plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Local executive management needs to realize that they have very intelligent and dedicated employees however when the economy improves there will be a mass exodus if conditions remain the same.
