I worked at URS a company of AECOM as a contractor (more than 3 years)

Pros

Compensation was very good, recognition given constantly, timely increases.

Cons

HR wasn't always expedient, job security, performance reviews were shaky at best but this is because it was done by the client, more oversight was needed to be fair.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get more involved with employee development to make contract more sucessful

    I worked at URS a company of AECOM full-time

    Pros

    Good technical experts in their respective fields

    Cons

    Office management doesn't communicate the office direction to the staff.
    Business decisions don't appear logical. The only way it is logical is if there is something they're not telling the staff.
    No opportunity for advancement.
    Office management isn't forward thinking. 1 week of low sold time will get you laid off irrespective of the future outlook.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The office is under performing and has been for some time. URS corporate should replace the entire office management staff or close the office.
    Everyone knows that the office is not performing well, don't insult the staff at town hall meetings by sugar coating the situation.

    Cons

    Unorganized
    Backstabbing
    Incompetant
    No Ethics
    This Company is just like working for a Mental Health Facility. You will never find a more disorganized (Al Bundy) kind of company to work for in a hundred years....No Resources, No Training, High Stress (Because of "No Resources & No Training"...Truly the most Pathetic Corporation it has ever been my displeasure to work for...If you take a job make sure that you have an "Iron Clad Contract" or "They Will Screw You Good"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its time to get your "Back Office" in shape and cut the BS about being a "People Company". Thats like the Slave Ship opearatores sayin g that they were taking thier captives on a "Cruise" It is toal BS... All you need to do is to peel back a few layers and YOU WILL QUICKLY SEE THE "FESTERING PUSS" WITHIN.....
