Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Never had a check bounce. I have heard that my bad experiences are do not exist in most of the company. Good way to get into Department of Energy (DOE) complex.

Cons

No accountability which causes problems in pretty much every area. Common practice to ignore rules because of schedule pressure or laziness. Constant struggle to take the extra 5 minutes to do the right thing.

Advice to Management

Hold people accountable.
