    I have been working at URS Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is okay but that's about it. and its only okay

    Cons

    where do I begin, discrimination, harassment, fraud, and poor management make AECOM / URS what it is. HR is a JOKE!! Went to them about the above stated issues and out of the blue I received a final warning for attendance and I have NEVER have a single reprimand. Moral is some of the worst and there is a VERY high turn over

    Advice to Management

    Treat people FAIRLY, raise moral and maybe compensate skilled people more than you do. there is a VERY high turnover so you need to look at the root cause and that is the immediate managers here starting how wasteful they are with the money they are given

    Pros

    Good culture, lots of activities - golf Wednesdays etc. The people that work there are great. They are also all over the world, so lot's of opportunities to travel and relocate, if you're into that.

    Cons

    Definite large corporation feel. You may have to relocate frequently. My boss has lived in 8 different cities now in the 10 or so years he has worked there. Pay seems low for the industry but I could be wrong.
