I worked at URS Corporation, an AECOM company full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Very willing to promote the younger generation

Cons

Tough to get on different projects once already aligned to one.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to start a mentoring program. This whole "if you want it you go after it" is simply a way for managment to get out of supporting mentoring.

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

    Pros

    Pay is OK, flexible schedule (when not having to work overtime - which comes in waves)

    Cons

    Work is either feast or famine, lack of vision and engagement of employees, quick to lay-off, tons of policies (some are good) - but local office management is not held accountable to them, very average to sub-par benefits (they provide the bare min. compared to competitors)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decide what URS wants to be - the best at what? Then engage and empower your employees in that vision. Just saying "we're the biggest provider of AEC services, etc." is uninspiring.Develop an employee engagement framework and ensure that all local management follows through.
