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

Pros

Good individuals with good intentions
Nice environment, good work/life balance.
They have good and interesting projects

Cons

They operate like a Federal Government, bureaucracy and slow moving.

Due to budget cuts URS will fire any person regardless they work for the company for 15, 20 or 25 years,
within 10 minutes the person is out of the office and you will never see that person again.
The people that left didn't know anything about it, there is was no internal communication to let the rest of the team know that someone left the company, it, no one will talk about it.
Is really hard to build trust, pride or commitment, when you see this behaviour.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be honest and authentic about who you really are and what you really care about, don't preach what you don't believe on.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities to move and grow

    Cons

    Essentially you are on your own finding them. If you are on a contract and it ends the company makes no effort to place you somewhere else.
