I worked at Urban Science

ProsEmployees are very friendly and talented.
Most employees here are CSULB graduates and most seem to be in their 20s or 30s.
The company is growing and constantly hiring new employees.
The company has offices all over the world with opportunities to transfer.
Good pay. Good location.

ConsEmployees working overtime with no overtime pay, instead paid days off were given.
Your work is very dependent on client data coming in, so some days are really slow.
Some tasks delegated to you are extremely simple and require no technical experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementAssign menial tasks to non-tech related employees.
