I worked at URS Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

good pay and lots of hours if wanted. Lots of rotating shift work but easy work usually. 7 days off every 4 weeks.

Cons

Good ole boy network when it comes to getting hired and promoted. Rotating shift work and flip flopping from days to nights. Lots of construction projects so you work yourself out of a job and no guarantee they will transfer you when done.

    I worked at URS Corporation as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice clean office with a lot of light and modern cubicle. They were well staffed so didn't feel overworked. Big company that tries to maintain a personal feeling.

    Cons

    Like all companies this size, things move a little slow. Trying to get everyone's feedback to complete a project took patience. I got frustrated with some of the old school engineers who were not that accepting of AutoDesks capabilities to expedite the projects.

    Advice to Management

    Feel like they were making changes when my contract period ran out. Curious what it's like now.

    I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a very large company so there are plenty of opportunities to meet new people and possible advancement in your career, based on what kind of employee you are (professional, technical, etc.)

    Cons

    Being a public company, management was more interested in keeping shareholders happy than keeping their employees happy.

    Advice to Management

    Move to a PTO benefit package instead of vacation/sick time. It will greatly increase your employees work/life balance issues.
