URS needs to be more involved in mentoring and employee growth
Principal Security Engineer (Former Employee), Fort Meade, MDMarch 25, 2015
URS is a great company but because it is so large they tend to over look the people at the bottom. I just hope that in the future the company would be more focused on employee growth and advancement.

Communication Gaps
Senior Logistics Technical Lead (Current Employee), Orlando, FLMarch 23, 2015
Cons: nothing planned for employees
A typical day at work is just that work. There are no events that would enhance the employees mindset. There needs to be more communication between corporate and the satellite. Co-workers aren't happy with company either. The hardest part of the job is every 3 years I have to wait to be hired by a new contracting company.

Extremely Large Company will all types of jobs and locations
Weapons Technician - Contractor (Former Employee), Creech AFB, NVFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: great management opportunity to work with lots of great people
Cons: lots of travel
Complete all tasks for UAV weapons systems for multiple divisions of the U.S. military branches. URS provides indirect management; timecards, payroll, and human resources. General Atomics provides direct management and they are excellent to work for. Individual needs are always taken into consideration. Lots of travel is hard on family life. The best part is serving the U.S.A as a civilian and the brotherhood created in close knit workplace.

Beware of Bismarck, ND operation
Professional (Former Employee), Bismarck, NDFebruary 15, 2015
Pros: great coworkers!
Cons: storefront office...work passes to other regional offices.
Co-workers are great and hard working. Office manager is lacking leadership and communication skills. No plan was communicated to the office staff. I had been there over 2 years, and they were down to 9 employees due to lack of business development, planning, and executing strategy. This should be a 25-50 person office with the amount of work in the region. It seems to be a storefront.
