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

Pros

A lot of autonomy is available if you are competent and willing to work hard. Worldwide projects available if you are interested in traveling.

Cons

Some of the local office bureaucracy and politics is irritating. But for a 50k employee company, it's not bad as a whole.

Advice to Management

Keep hiring good young people to train as your future leaders. Keep salaries at the top of the scale to maintain your best people.

    I have been working at URS Corporation (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Has been a pleasure to work with some wonderful people.

    Cons

    Company needs to show better interest in keeping employees working. Need to ADD ZERO Hour/On Call to Job Type in rating area of survey!!!

    Advice to Management

    In this economy, the company should spend time to find work for employees in other offices and aid in helping make such moves.!!!!! Human Resources should "LIVE" up to that title in aiding LAID OFF (ZERO HOUR) EMPLOYEES find work at other locations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

    Pros

    Incredibly flexible with regards to office hours. Nice coworkers. I think the office is a generally positive group of people, which is refreshing.

    Cons

    Corporate HR seems to think it's ok to not play by the rules of the states the company is contracted in. Health insurance coverage is pretty much non-existant, benefits promised to me prior to accepting (such as tuition reimbursement) are actually frowned upon using (they want you to use "their" methods). This job actually costs me more out of pocket than any other job I've ever held. Stay away.
