Stephanie, Staff Environmental Engineer
Boca Raton, Florida
I am proud to work for a top engineering consulting firm with some of the industry’s most knowledgeable and experienced people. Our culture might be best defined as fast-paced and extremely professional. I learn something new every day, and being able to work on a wide range of projects keeps me interested and motivated. We are constantly encouraged to produce quality results.
Kenneth, Staffing Manager
U.S. Army, Master Sgt. (Ret.)
As a veteran, I appreciate the fact that URS recognizes the high level of technical training, leadership and experience veterans bring to the table. This Company also shares the same values we were instilled with in the military—integrity, trust and respect. There is an outstanding leadership team here that actively seeks and listens to input from employees.
Eldon, Systems Engineer
U.S. Marine Corps, Maj. (O-4) (Ret.)
When I retired from the U.S. Marine Corps eleven years ago, I was looking for a challenging position where I could use my engineering education and DoD acquisition skills. URS offered me an opportunity to use my education and skills in a technical area that was new to me, so I jumped at the chance. Today, I work on the VIRGINIA Class Submarine Program, helping to provide the most sophisticated advances in technology. It is an exciting and demanding job that is never the same two days in a row.
Tony, Engineer 6
I can sum up our Company culture in three words: committed, professional and relaxed. URS provides an atmosphere that empowers us to do great work. At the same time, we are encouraged to enjoy life by participating in Company-sponsored recreational activities. My personal fortune is that I have been trusted and empowered to lead project teams in supporting our customers. This has not only given me the chance to mentor junior engineers for whom I’m responsible, but also to learn from more experienced people. I have forged many valuable friendships along the way.
Alice, Engineer IV
U.S. Air Force, Sgt. (E-4)
Kennedy Space Center, Florida
I joined URS after six years of enlistment with the U.S. Air Force. This company supports continuing education, an important aspect of a return to civilian life. The fact that many URS employees are veterans helps promote a sense of community based on common experiences, which helps makes the transition from military to civilian life easier. I also appreciate the support our Company shows for employees who have commitments to the military reserve.
Christina, Document Control/Records Manager
Tooele Chemical Disposal Facility (TOCDF), Utah
I am proud to work for a company that is sincere about maintaining its integrity. At URS, safety and environmental compliance are a lifestyle. What I have learned here is truly life changing. I have the support I need to advance, no matter what direction I choose. Long after I have retired, it will be the people I’ve worked with who will remain in my memory. It’s been my good fortune to have met some great people at URS, many of whom have been my mentors. Some have become good friends, and I will never forget them.
Jesse, Project Manager
I thought working at URS would be just like working for any other engineering firm—I was wrong. Through numerous projects, URS has allowed me to take significant roles beyond my standard engineering training and has taught me aspects of client management, sales and marketing, and financial management I would not have been able to learn at a traditional engineering firm. My advice to any new employee is that you have control of your career at URS. You need to seek out the opportunities, projects and experiences that will meet your personal and career goals and recognize there is a place at URS for you to achieve them.
Cameron, Senior Engineer
I have worked for URS since I finished college in 1997, beginning with predecessor firm Dames & Moore. I made my decision to work for URS based on the people I met, the type and scale of projects and the opportunities for personal development. I have learned to work with a diverse group of individuals on a wide variety of projects in a relatively short period of time. My supervisor has been an advocate for my career advancement since we began working together seven years ago, when I joined our water and wastewater group. This group has more than doubled in size since that time, and I am proud of the role I have played in its development.
Alan, Project Manager/Group Manager
Working for URS lends credibility when serving a huge multi-national company like DuPont. URS has afforded me an opportunity to lead by making me part of the DuPont Diamond Leadership Team. Serving on the team has provided me with a unique blend of technical and business leadership skills. One of my most gratifying roles is to recruit and hire for the URS-DuPont alliance. It has been very satisfying to identify, recruit and supervise new talent, both experienced hands as well as college graduates. The reward, of course, is seeing the new recruits succeed.
