I worked at URS Corporation full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Engineering worked as a team to solve some unusual problems. Egos were left at home.

Cons

Discipline was weak to non-existent. "Taking Responsibility" for the most part was only taken for the good things.

Advice to Management

When employees do stupid things, at least have some meaningful consequences for the act.

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

    Pros

    Management allowed us to learn new aspects of the job and the company's methods, for personal growth. Good time off and benefits. Management tries to move people from contract to contract to benefit the employees.

    Cons

    Some newer, modern methods were not always implemented from the beginning.

    Advice to Management

    Management is good.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Flexible time off, health benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Senior Management has no vision or direction, and I mean none. Instead of terminating useless employees, several have been promoted to more senior positions because they have shown how inept they are at most things. Bloated sales force that can not sell work as there are few valuable resources to sell. Industry reputation is not good. 401k match is not competitive in the market.

    Advice to Management

    Craft a mission statement with core values, and strive to stay the course! Most importantly, share that information with your staff. Please realize you do not exist in a vacuum and there are people who care and have good ideas. Also realize that there may be others who are more intelligent that you, don't be threatened by them, surround yourself with them.
