Doesn't Recommend

No opinion of CEO

I worked at URS Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Friendly operations personnel and management knowing what they want and how to get there.

Cons

Has no idea of configuration management from an engineering aspect. Still uses paper and hand documentation in an inert filing system. Instead of microfiche, Microstation, etc.

Advice to Management

Needs to understand communication instead of self preservation. Does not support continued employment and retirement.

    I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours. I've always had billable work. I've only had to work some 50-80 hour weeks. Typical is 40 hours.

    Cons

    Low pay. Many people in the environmental group do not get raises. The typical raise is 1%. Higher than 3% raise is almost unheard of. Limited training opportunities.

    I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great management with an attitude toward keeping the best people. Great salaries, lots of support for hiring, managing, and marketing to external clients.

    Cons

    They do not provide new laptops, PDAs, and other technology quickly or easily. The internal contracting/invoicing software is far too cumbersome for managing small projects.
