    Advice to Management

    What kind of a message is being sent throughout the organization when they allow a senior high paid individual run his own business while on URS payroll?
    Where is the focus and ethiscs?

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at URS Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Projects worked on were interesting and varied in duration. Good people with a wide range of knowledge. Good policies & procedures and training program (mostly online). Ethical company. Good benefits consistent with peer companies.

    Cons

    People are more into their own thing and aren't particularly sociable. When a project ends, and there is not enough work to get you going on the next one right away, it is primarily up to you to find more work within the office or with other offices. Little effort spent to help you find work with another group, even though the work may not be the best fit with your skills.

    Advice to Management

    Interact more with staff to make it a little more familial, foster more collaborative atmosphere with less "siloing" among the various group. This would help bill ability and hopefully profitability.
