    I worked at URS Corporation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is ok company for some recent graduate. You will gain lots of experience with an intersive on-the-job training. Basically, you will perform all the work they would trust to a matured engineer, except you will get 60-70 hrs of work a week with a minimum pay.

    Cons

    Worked 60 sometimes 70 hrs a week, including weekends and afterwork hours, with no overtime compensation. It would not even be that bad if they didn't have a "no reference" policy. After working you b--t off for several years, they don't even want to provide you with recommendation. There is no way to work your way up. After four years without a raise I tried to re-negotiate the salary and benefits, and the HR's answer was "if you don't like what we give you - good bye - there is a long line outside waiting to fill in". Other than HR personnel, the staff was courteous and professional. But the corporate policy is very negative towards the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest, and say as it is - you don't give a d--n about your employees.
