Good salary & benefits, disappointed in opportunity for growth

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Columbia, SC

ProsSalaries seem in line or above average with other companies. Benefits package a tremendous improvement from BP Barber (company that was acquired by URS).

ConsCommunication is severely lacking and seems to be a cultural thing here. People are too territorial about clients and opportunities for BD and career enhancement limited to upper echelon. What should be a benefit of a large global company is not in that opportunities to work across offices and regions is negligible because every region is own fiefdom and structure does not seem to be set up to utilize other offices and expertises without severe hassles. Constant and excessive focus on utilization at expense of training, business development efforts.

Advice to Senior ManagementEmpower all your employees to be marketers and don't limit it to upper few. Lack of communication is creating bad morale. Keep employee development in mind and don't focus constantly on utilization without keep big picture in mind. Without improvements in these areas people will continue to leave, and there will be a mass exodus once economy improves and other opportunities present themselves.
