I have been working at URS full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Strong company, good executive decisions. Working here gives you the opportunity to work on a lot of big projects, dealing in many different types of engineering/planning projects. I work with a great team with really supportive managers, though not everyone here has that luxury (but you'll find that almost anywhere).

Cons

There can be turf wars, though you'll find that almost anywhere. It's also easy to get lost in the size of the company too. There's always a lot of acquisitions going on, so it just keeps growing and growing. But then, that expands opportunities as well. I've known some people in other groups that have had bad experiences with direct supervisors, but my experiences have luckily been great. Pay could be a little better, when you get your PE license you don't get a huge pay bump but they do what they can.
