    I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very qualified and passionate group of people; diverse work experience; ability to transfer to almost any city in the US; access to staff corporate-wide provides amazing opportunities for growing niche markets/supporting any client requirement in house.

    Cons

    A large publicly traded firm comes with bureaucracy that there are no work arounds for. Mandatory annual training requirements and PM training are heavy and not as personalized as they could be.

    Advice to Management

    Mandatory and PM training could be more personal and tailored. Pursuit of smaller clients and projects should be encouraged and rewarded more. Small projects often lead to larger opportunities if the time can be invested.

    I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some great co-workers and middle management create a nice place to perform daily work.

    Cons

    401K was reduced as well as PTO accrual this year. Other changes to harmonize benefits across divisions is apparently coming also.

    Advice to Management

    Draconian management of a particular department needs to be changed. It would make everyone's moral increase.
