UH-60 General mechanic- troubleshot malfunctions (Former Employee), Fort Lewis,WA – April 22, 2013
Pros: good pay
Cons: benifits have been taken away, job security is poor
Working for URS can be shakey. I was laid off and re-hired less than a month later. I was again laid off about 2 months later. Working for them is OK, but it seems like they are more interested in their bottom line than the employee. Over the past few years the company took away all paid sick days, 401K matching, and changed paid vacation policies. – more... All of this lead to my own worksite voting in a union in order to protect our benifits. – less
Wheeled Vehicle Mechanic (Former Employee), Fort Hood, TX – April 18, 2013
The pay was mediocre to say at least but this is of course a big corporation which values production with micro management. Advancement was little at best and no annual pay raises. Employees worked hard to repair the vehicles that were brought into them but no room for improvements or initiative.
Sr. Engineer/Sr. Transportation Engineer/PM (Former Employee), Richmond, Va – April 12, 2013
Worked in the Richmond, Va office. No support staff provided even though it was promised. Remote staff is located in Virginia Beach almost 2 hrs away. Upper management was not supportive of employees advancing themselves. Typical good old boy system. a ton of indian chiefs at the top but no indians to do the work. Stay out of this office....Layoff Central.

Senior Logistics Analyst (Current Employee), Redstone Arsenal, AL – April 3, 2013
Pros: great benefits with job growth opportunity
Cons: sub to another contractor
A typical day at work includes performing normal Logistics Task per the the contractual agreement with the Army. I learned an up close perspective of the new Army provisioning system and database LMP. The management team /company is great but on this contract, we are a sub to another company and I am not comfortable/appreciate the relationship. My co-workers – more... are old professionals that know the inside and out. The hardest part of the job is working as a sub to another company that could learn a lot about teaming. The most enjoyable part of the job was being an important component of the US Army's mission accomplishment. – less
