Avoid URS Dallas

Manager (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsGood technical experts in their respective fields

ConsOffice management doesn't communicate the office direction to the staff.
Business decisions don't appear logical. The only way it is logical is if there is something they're not telling the staff.
No opportunity for advancement.
Office management isn't forward thinking. 1 week of low sold time will get you laid off irrespective of the future outlook.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe office is under performing and has been for some time. URS corporate should replace the entire office management staff or close the office.
Everyone knows that the office is not performing well, don't insult the staff at town hall meetings by sugar coating the situation.

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