More cons than pros at the moment, but there are signs of change

Senior Consultant (Current Employee)
Long Beach, CA

ProsAmazing travel opportunities, good opportunities to grow and develop with the company.

ConsLacking in competitive compensation. Company striving for huge growth in the coming years, but behind the best when it comes to company culture. Somewhat lacking in solid people management, and a feeling of disconnect between Senior Management and their employees. Again, it seems they are looking to address these.

    A once great company, ruined by poor leadership, poor work life balance, and below market compensation

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Detroit, MI

    I have been working at Urban Science full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Nice facilities, company invests in technology, some great co-workers. Reasonable… Cons: Very poor work life balance - long hours with little to no recognition. This company runs *very lean*, to the point of it being detrimental… Advice to Senior Management: You have completely lost all regard for the most important asset of any business - the employees who deliver. Urban Science got to where it… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
