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

    Pros

    My manager and colleagues were a pleasure to work with. By todays standard they have good compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    There's no such thing as a perfect company to work for however URS Dallas is a total nightmare. The name of the game is to remain billable and it is up to each employee to find a project to work on without any internal help. If you aren't billable then your head is on the chopping block and you are reduced to walking around the office begging managers for a project to charge your time to. This is referred to "Pimping yourself out" by many employees. Morale doesn't exist here anymore and "executive row" is more concerned about holding on to power than developing a business plan.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Local executive management needs to realize that they have very intelligent and dedicated employees however when the economy improves there will be a mass exodus if conditions remain the same.

    I have been working at URS full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good Technical Expertise
    Competitive Salaries
    Average Benefits
    Good Location
    Safety is a core Value

    Cons

    Top executive in Houston, Engineering & Construction, is running his own business on the side
    Senior leaders are focused on personal agendas
    High turnover at leadership levels
    Inconsistent and low workload- one major customer

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What kind of a message is being sent throughout the organization when they allow a senior high paid individual run his own business while on URS payroll?
    Where is the focus and ethiscs?
