Current Employee - Project Management in Houston, TX (US)

I have been working at URS full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good Technical Expertise
Competitive Salaries
Average Benefits
Good Location
Safety is a core Value

Cons

Top executive in Houston, Engineering & Construction, is running his own business on the side
Senior leaders are focused on personal agendas
High turnover at leadership levels
Inconsistent and low workload- one major customer

Advice to ManagementAdvice

What kind of a message is being sent throughout the organization when they allow a senior high paid individual run his own business while on URS payroll?
Where is the focus and ethiscs?

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Approves of CEO
