    I have been working at URS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    99% of my co-workers are smart, talented, and hard working, which makes team projects actually enjoyable.

    Cons

    My office just laid off our Office Assistant Manager, who has worked for this company for over 20 years. He was great at his job, worked well with everyone, and was highly regarded as a professional and excellent manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a large corporation decides to get rid of a key person with significant experience and relationships with co-workers and clients, the message that is sent to the office is that hard work and loyalty is not valued here. Not to mention you lose that client relationship which can cost the company millions in revenue down the road.

    I worked at URS full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great People, friendly, supportive
    Nice Work Enviroment
    Smart, ambitious engineers

    Cons

    Lack of Leadership in IE Division
    Lack of Controls (financial and contracts) which lead to poor ethical conduct and a potential (read potential) for fraudulent waste and practices
    Way too much emphasis on "sold time" billablity to Govt., which leads to engineers & project managers scrambling for billable work and doing other tasks if there is no technical work to do and bill customers.
    Lots of duplication in legal and contracts areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together in the Govt contracts arena (IE Division). CEO has head in the sand as do other leadership staff.
