    Pros

    Great atmosphere, upper management support when needed

    Middle of nowhere! The facility was built in a very remote location by design. It was on a military installation

    I worked at URS as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    URS cares about their employees, they take an extreme amount of pride in what they build.

    Cons

    There are always those few in upper management that take their positions too far. Good, hard working, knowledgeable people sent out the door for disagreeing with them.
