    I worked at URS Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I was with URS before they were merged with AECOM. I was in the Federal Services Division, and they were an excellent company to work for. I'm not sure if things have changed much since the merge, But while I was with them they were very ethical, took care of their employees and rewarded good performance. Good pay and decent benefits.

    Cons

    Can't think of any bad things to say. Benefits seemed like they could have been a little better (health care) but given the circumstances they were probably as good as could be. It is still a business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the URS culture in AECOM.
