URS is a great employer in a very competitive A&E business environment.
Pros: strong brand name, large company with many offices in many locations, very fair and reasonable management culture.
Cons: no frills, cyclical business in a tough/competitive market environment.
This URS office has approximately 300 employees, and like most office locations, my co-workers are very friendly and professional. Everyone works hard, but the toughest part of any management position is the day-to-day supervision of people, and the same goes at any company.
I generally work standard business hours, but sometimes have to stay late – more... into the night, with occasional weekend work.
URS is a no-frills company, but it treats employees well and compensates them in accordance with market conditions. – less
