Not great but not bad
IT Security Analyst / Lead Systems Engineer (Current Employee), Woodlawn, MDMarch 10, 2013
Pros: flex schedules, pay, and benefits.
Cons: as a contract worker your treated as a second class citizen by fed workers.
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.

Operations Plant Shift Manager (Current Employee), Stockton, UTJune 17, 2012
Pros: wages are above average for the area.
Cons: shift work/12 hour shifts
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 – more... 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. – less
