Pros

Flexible work schedule (e.g. 9/80 schedule), diverse and interesting projects, big A/E firm so lots of technical resources, offices all over the world, challenging work, competitive salaries, and good training programs. I have stayed at URS for ten years because I have a great boss, I enjoy the people I work with, and I have the freedom to takde my career in any direction I want.

Cons

Publicly traded company so you won't get the small-private firm feel, some offices are stunning while others are drab and unimpressive (like this one), no bonus program, benefits package is nothing to write home about.

Advice to Management

Improve URS' advertising in trade journals, conferences, professional organizations, etc. I often read trade publications and attend professional industry events and very rarely see URS ads or sponsorships. I think our competitors do a much better job in this department.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, and allowing for family time.

    Cons

    Lacks professional "management" practices. More "who" you know than how well you perform.

    Advice to Management

    Manage your staff better; communicate expectations, coach, discipline, and reward when warranted.
