    I have been working at UniversalPegasus International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary, Benefits, Flex Time Work Hours, People are great here.

    Cons

    More Changes Coming? New Ownership may bring more changes, this company does not need any additional changes. In the past few years, Senior Management has changed quite a few times and with each come change in style of management. Not sure what the new ownership will bring.

    Advice to Management

    Need to communicate more about the REAL changes going on to employees at all levels.

    I worked at UniversalPegasus International full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good health benefits, nice location in Houston. Offers participation in Charity work. Generous compensation

    Cons

    Didn't feel like a positive or collaborative environment. Couldn't really get a feel for company culture. Morale seemed lowed; company felt very segmented. Things could be better as there has been quite a turnaround in senior management staff since I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. You are nothing without them.

    Pros

    Decent pay & benefits. The work environment and employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    Lack of direction from the top. Owned by a PE Group that has just sold the soul of the company to bankers. Knee-jerk planning for hiring and subsequent lay-offs with no long term thought process. BD support is nonexistent.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a clear directive for how the company is going to grow the business and push initiatives out that support that direction.

    Pros

    Friendly and comfortable work environment with people that get along well. You can gain field experience.

    Cons

    The mentorship was very weak and they didn't do a good job of providing the necessary tools to succeed in the engineering environment. Not enough control over the client and their overall needs and always in a reactionary mode.

    Advice to Management

    Need some more strong mentors and better organization of tools and more structured use of the tools.

    Pros

    Great benefits and 401k, 9/80 work schedule, some really good people work there

    Cons

    Regular lay offs/poor employee morale. In a 6 month span there were 2 major lay offs based on loss of projects or no new business. Constant turnover/attrition of staff. Lots of baggage/attitudes still prevalent from the Ensco/ Pegasus days. Get over it, move on and for those that can't, show them the door.

    Advice to Management

    Get as lean as you need to be in one fail swoop. Then go out and land some decent projects and start to build your company again. There is a good core of some really strong people, but they need some direction and something to get excited about.
