    Pros

    I like working the 9/80 shift getting every other Friday off. Education was highly encouraged. I was able to get my MBA paid for and completed while working at URS.

    Cons

    I wish I had a better connection with different supervisors so I could've gotten more experience in different areas. It all goes back to networking. If people know you and like how you work you can have many opportunities.

  8. Very nice working environment. All the project managers are very friendly. There are lot of resources to develop.

    Pros

    Job security. They work as a consultant. So, it's very common that sometimes you will be out of projects sometime. But they continue to treat you as a regular employee.

    Cons

    Their annual salary increment ratio is ridiculous. The best performer will get 3%, and the worst performer will get 1%. Is there any meaning to deserve extra dedication for the company?

    Advice to Management

    It's big company with more than 3000 offices in USA. I am very sorry to find that there is no mutual respect in higher management from one office to another. They should work as a team

    Open to give opportunities for motivated people willing to put the extra effort.

    Cons

    Region HQs are removed from the revenue generating units.

    Competing P&Ls difficult cooperation across regions.
