I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Strong corporate leadership, great pay, good benefits.

Cons

Middle managers are allowed to play favorites for promotions & assignments. Personal strengths and abilities are often denigrated to suppress ambition & support this favoritism.

Advice to Management

Speak anonymously with you bottom-line workers. Most have been programmed to portray their Supervisors positively in fear of being black-listed. Your greatest challenge is finding out how your workers REALLY feel. Remember, a termite-ridden home looks great from the outside...
