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

    Pros

    - Work features large, interesting projects that make a difference in our communities. The focus is on public civil infrastructure and fortune 500 industrial clients.
    - The office is full of talented scientists, engineers, and planners at the staff and manager level.
    - The managers are mostly supportive, and competent.
    - Excellent career growth opportunities for go-getters and self-starters. You can take on as much responsibility as you want. You have control over your future at the company, and won't be bossed around.
    - Work hours are very flexible.
    - Good focus on employee safety.

    Cons

    - The forms and approval processes can be onerous.
    - Some managers get too busy with project work and don't delegate enough. Staff could grow more if these managers passed on their work.
    - Laptops and PDAs are generally not available.
    - You'll have to work hard at building the internal relationships that will advance your career. Don't count on it happening automatically, or assume your manager will do it for you.
    - Some practice areas are more vibrant/robust than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know you are busy, but take some time today to show a junior person how to do something new. Transfer your knowledge and understanding of our business before you retire.
