Don't hire so many people and then need to lay them off.

    I worked at URS Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with a versatile group of people. Engineers from all over the world. Had exposure to working with international offices and that was great experience.

    Cons

    There is a divide among the different departments and with other offices. They have more than their fair share of politics going on. A lot of that it that URS is a conglomerate so merging newly acquired company sometimes lead to stress on the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Bridge the gap and end the politics. Let everyone from the janitor up that they are a valued asset to the company.
