Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Chantilly, VA – July 21, 2014
I really enjoy working for URS. My colleagues are great to work with and their level of knowledge continues to amaze me on a daily basis.
In most of my previous companies my managers were managers and had next to no technical knowledge. Working for URS I found that my managers are great managers and have an amazing technical aptitude. This makes explaining technical issues less challenging. The most enjoyable thing about working for URS is our team building exercises. Every so often my manager takes out cart racing and that has helped all of us relieve some of the day to day stresses.
Aviation Structural Mechanic (Current Employee) – Norfolk, VA – August 3, 2016
The work is ok. The only real down fall is the managers, micro managing, and the feel of walking on egg shells around managers. The shifts change a lot, so it's hard to get a routine with your family. The is some travel involved. There's also time spent on naval ship which the compensation for time away and on on ship not good at all!
not much to write....in one word, that company sucks
Senior Database Engineer (Former Employee) – Daleville, AL – March 30, 2016
It was nice working with my colleagues in the simulation and training division. Atmosphere was not too bad. Higher management left a lot to be desired as they were more busy thinking about their year end bonus than doing their marketing work (i.e they were not aggressively looking contracts for our simulation division).
NO free lunches. Not even a McDonald christmas hamburger!!!
I love my job. I have many good workers and of coarse some not so good but I have gotten along with all my co-workers. The only problem I have is this is a low paying job for the amount of work being done in and out of weather elements and feel like I will get no where with this job.

IT Security Analyst / Lead Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Woodlawn, MD – March 10, 2013
Overall a decent company to work for. Benefits and pay is good but not many advancement options because most of their business is with government agencies. Each government agency is different so the experience will be different based on the culture of the agency. Not fond of the culture of the agency I work at but that is not the fault of URS.
flex schedules, pay, and benefits.
as a contract worker your treated as a second class citizen by fed workers.

Operations Plant Shift Manager (Current Employee) – Stockton, UT – June 17, 2012
A typical day at work begins with 6 meetings between 5:00 to 8:00 where turnover from the previous shift is discussed at length and the plan of the day is discussed and set in place. After receiving turnover from my counterpart, I chair the the next 3 meetings. The final meeting is with senior management. I've learned to communicate effectively with my subordinates and have set expectations with them to communicate down the line because the team stands a better chance of succeeding if everyone is on the same page. I believe it's important to manage the team fairly and stress free as long as all employed understand the general expectations of the job. Those being, work safely, wear PPE when required, follow procedures and be physically prepared to work when you arrive at the job. The hardest part of the job is keeping everyone on the team focused and motivated every day. Achieving success in doing this is the most enjoyable part of my job.
