Not a very great place 2 work.
Cant say (Current Employee), North EastApril 22, 2014
Pros: not much
Cons: see review
Boring place to work with lame co workers. Your employment is only as safe as the current contract the company has with the client. If the contract goes away so can your employment. The company is setup to make money even at the detriment of the employee. All the benefits, paid leave, vacation, sick time is setup to take advantage of the employee. the – more... cost of healthcare for an employee with a family is actually pretty expensive. Don't let the big name, reputation or international presence influence your decision, at URS you are only a number not a human being. – less

They Will call or text and tell you to come to the yard that they wont to to go with someone and work. sometimes the info that the office gives you is right sometimes not.

Contract work in the Maintenance Field
Senior Mechanic (Former Employee), Killeen, TXApril 3, 2014
A typical day at the Job is to be prepared for anything be ready to perform your job whether its replacing parts or rebuilding the equipment. you learn that you can repair vehicles and do it well. the upper Management was great but the Lower management tried to hard to be correct in their style of management. The personnel they were a great group men – more... & woman to work with and very knowledgeable a joy to work with. Not getting the parts you need to complete the job. Waiting on them to come in. The most enjoyable part is giving the customer their equipment back. – less

URS is a great employer in a very competitive A&E business environment.
Supervising Discipline Engineer (Current Employee), Fort Mill, SCApril 1, 2014
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
