    I worked at URS Corporation, an AECOM company full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Worked with several very bright and nice personnel.

    Cons

    Many individuals who were out for themselves and always scheming to undermine someone. Several Managers were of no use. They would make promises and never follow through. URS is an amalgamation of several companies that were purchased which creates a great deal of problems since their is no uniformity/cohesiveness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET NEW BLOOD! Need managers and senior managers that aren't tied to the old ways of doing business and can see how to grow the business within the URS structure.

    Pros

    Management allowed us to learn new aspects of the job and the company's methods, for personal growth. Good time off and benefits. Management tries to move people from contract to contract to benefit the employees.

    Cons

    Some newer, modern methods were not always implemented from the beginning.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is good.

    Pros

    Good people; ok pay; 80% paid health Insurance; keeps you informed about whats going on in the company

    Cons

    Managers seem to not ensure enough guidance and training is provided. You learn as
    you go from everyone. Salaries are below average for industry standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure new employees and interns are provided mentoring and/or adequate training. Try not to puff chests out too much. Employees don't like you trying to flex your muscles
