    I have been working at Urban Science

    Pros

    I had better offers from other companies, but chose to work at Urban Science because of the people and the overall culture of the company. It is a very friendly, outgoing company and staff that tries its best to accommodate a work life balance.

    Cons

    Wages tend to be lower than industry, but are improving. Sometimes, you can feel like your career growth is stagnant is up to you. The company is facing increased competition where it once led the field, but they are doing what they can to stay ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seek newer technologies other than Microsoft only solutions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Urban Science.

    Interview Details

    I received an email pretty quickly after applying to set up a phone screen. The recruiter throughout the process was extremely nice and helpful. The phone screen was about an hour with the standard interview questions and a few challenging problem solving questions. Then, I received an invitation for an in-person interview with 4-5 people. I met either individually or with a pair for about 30 minutes each. The questions were a mix of standard, extremely technical, and a few more off the wall problem solving types.
