Former Employee - Energy Engineer in Cleveland, OH
Former Employee - Energy Engineer in Cleveland, OH

I worked at URS full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great people to work with/for. Quality projects. Great place to learn or great place to start late in your career.

Cons

Hard to move up from the level you are hired in. A lot of turn over with lower level employees. Layoffs are a possibility. Each branch basically serves as its own company. Not the highest pay for lower level employees. They try to "low ball" you in the interview.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The company needs more cohesion between branches and more chances for employees to advance.

    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?
