    The company grows by acquisition so it's always trying to integrate a new group of people.

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

    Pros

    Steady paychecks, once you are in the system (took me 9 weeks initially)

    Cons

    At the international level, one has to try and work with numerous URS cyber people, located in many time zones all over the place. HQ in San Francisco, local offices all over, most of the processing in Houston or Austin Texas.
    With the firm, there are no principles or real values, its mission is simply to make money. Hard to live with year after year. No soul.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Limit the chain of comand.
