    Great company albeit an “old school” business outlook.

    Pros

    The benefits, respectful environment and excellent career support.

    Cons

    "Old School" structre, slow to implement new ideas. But again, excellent career support!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider broader technology implementation, and remote working situations.

    I worked at URS Corporation, an AECOM company full-time

    Pros

    Worked with a lot of intelligent, capable engineers with a broad depth of experience. Had the opportunity to work across multiple business lines, which was both interesting and kept the work fresh, and also broadened my experience.

    Cons

    As is unfortunately the norm rather than the exception in the large EPC business world, the company has a tendency to treat engineers and other professionals like "higher priced labor." That is, times are good when there are projects, but when things are slow, charging to overhead generally means you will be shown the door. Again, I don't believe this is unique to URS.
