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

Pros

Very willing to promote the younger generation

Cons

Tough to get on different projects once already aligned to one.

Advice to Management

Need to start a mentoring program. This whole "if you want it you go after it" is simply a way for managment to get out of supporting mentoring.

    I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of projects and the offices are centrally located in the Bay Area. Intelligent co-workers and strong focus on high quality work.

    Cons

    Excessive bureaucracy and expensive benefits. My friends at other large engineering firms pay a lot less for their health insurance.

    The Bay Area offices are very white and male, which is odd given that the Bay Area is so diverse. If you are brown and/or female, you have to really fight to be taken seriously or promoted.
