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

Pros

Sometimes interesting work, if you are in with your manager.

Terrible technical leadership. If you want to work for a good old boys group, sign up. If you don't play golf, watch out.

Advice to Management

Be careful who you hire.

    Good big projects with high visibility, Vast resources, Great place to gain lots of experience quickly, schedule flexibility with paid overtime

    Focus more on revenue and billibility than engineering and client needs, no cooperation between offices that are not in the same profit-loss centers, penny pinching attitudes that are so extreme they are foolish, long hours expected.

    Advice to Management

    Ask yourself why the people actually doing the work are leaving.

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

    Pros

    Lots of "stretch assignments" to help you grow by overcoming challenges.

    Cons

    If you are in middle management, you are the target of constant abuse. Upper management will praise low-level workers in public, but berate them to middle management while forcing them to constantly pressure for more, more, more - no recognition for successful accomplishments, only public abuse when things aren't going according to plan.

    Advice to Management

    Sr. Management should practice what they preach in the area of treating people with respect.
