Good company, but middle managers allowed to use favoritism.

I have been working at URS Corporation, an AECOM company full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Strong corporate leadership, great pay, good benefits.

Cons

Middle managers are allowed to play favorites for promotions & assignments. Personal strengths and abilities are often denigrated to suppress ambition & support this favoritism.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Speak anonymously with you bottom-line workers. Most have been programmed to portray their Supervisors positively in fear of being black-listed. Your greatest challenge is finding out how your workers REALLY feel. Remember, a termite-ridden home looks great from the outside...

    Pros

    Good people at URS, but some will be leaving soon due to senior management decisions. Middle managers are good hardworking people. Work is OK, but there is not much of it. URS took over a mom and pop business and is trying to integrate it into their overall business. One issue that is positive is the manner in which it values it own stock

    Cons

    Senior management is making bad decisions. Client loss is an issue. Employees are not treated well with respect to raises as they don't keep up with cost of living. BILLABILITY IS MOST IMPORTANT THING. Expect you to do certain things on your own time. Told to get work done with no overall schedule. Employee satisfaction/retention doesn't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management needs an overhaul as they are too young and inexperienced!!!
