I worked at URS Corporation, an AECOM company full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

although it is a large company and sometimes very hard to navigate, it treats its employees rather fairly. Had an HR issue that was dealt with quickly and effectively

Cons

can be difficult to get the necessary information needed to perform job tasks as the company is so large. an internal 'social' networking site would be helpful

    I worked at URS Corporation, an AECOM company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Plenty of potential to expand ones career. many areas for growth (when company is flourishing), great people to work with.

    Cons

    Publicly traded company...have stockholders to satisfy!!! Employees can be seen more as a profit/loss factors than as meaningful contributor to the Co. Billability is KING!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the "cogs" (employees) more!! Be proactive rather than trying to apply a "one size fits all" philosophy to management.

    I have been working at URS Corporation, an AECOM company full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent management, diverse projects focusing mostly on power, oil & gas and aerospace. The office has a pretty good after-hours program and is very involved with charities, fund raising and local community support.

    Access to Sr. leadership is good... and the folks who aren't overwhelmed typically take the time to talk about career goals, business and future opportunities.

    I've never been told that I couldn't get training if it can be applied to my work or projects... and everyone is provided the opportunity to grow.

    Cons

    This office has a few 'toxic' employees, and since they are fairly successful, haven't been asked to change their ways unfortunately. There are a couple of under-performers who really stick out like sore thumbs, why they aren't gone remians a mystery to me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate the good and bad.... we can take it. No need to sugar-coat things.
