IE Division Mismanaged, with Old School Mentality

Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Germantown, MD

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

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

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

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
