The lack of planning by management and proper distribution of workload between employees is not worth the high salary.

Pros

Pay is high due to supporting work in the Nuclear Field. Overtime is always paid (straight time).

Cons

Lack of management at the Fermi II site allows the workload to snowball. Employees are not used up to their maximum potential. Young engineers are used to perform administrative tasks and to push paper instead of being properly trained on the technical aspects they need to succeed. There is no room for advancement in the company. If you are sent to the Fermi II site, you will be forced to stay at this location.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Plan the workload/projects appropriately to avoid everything becoming a crisis.

    Pros

    We are on contracted on a federal site and we work Monday through Friday and the pay is good.

    Cons

    They keep taking away or adjusting benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It feels like they are just wanting to make more money and aren't taking care of the employees as much.

    I worked at URS full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Since we mostly worked on a contract outside of URS, the work environment was great.

    Cons

    URS didn't really have a lot to do with our day to day. They made decisions for us when they didn't have a clue what we did all day.
