    Valuable lesson how upper management can tear a company down.

    I worked at Ultra Electronics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Hard to think of any good things to say about this company.

    1) A pay check every two weeks.

    2) If you have no idea how to actually engineer a valuable product or service this place is for you.

    3) If you can smile everyday and stay positive when the President and VP's treat you like dirt and with very little respect, then this place is for you.

    4) Upper Manager is comprised of employees that have no tech background, no previous jobs in management, and were previously admin folks, so you will probably easily impress them, but it won't matter cause they will still take all the credit.

    5) If you have no real engineering skills, but like saying words like cloud-computing, innovation, and are willing to constantly remind the few remaining actual engineers that you don't speak "low-level" talk (like it's a bad thing), then this is the place for you.

    6) Flex schedule

    7) Decent pay if you can mingle, smile, and agree with the terrible decisions your manager makes. If you want a salary increase it's very important to never question upper-management in and outside of meetings.

    Cons

    1) The company is headed down really fast and you will wonder if you will have a job the next week.

    2) Very little accountability for anyone. As long as you can bill hours to the government contract that's all that really matters.

    3) If you can't fill out your timesheet and bill the entire 40-hours to the government customer, you better be ready to use vacation or sick time to fill in the gaps, even if you were working, because you are not allowed to bill more than 1 hour of admin-overhead.

    4) Even though you have been emailing your manager and your manager's supervisor everyday for a week explaining to them you have no work to do and receive no response you better have your timesheet done on time and have the entire timesheet billable to the government customer, otherwise use your vacation time. I saw a co-worker burn through 40 hours of vacation time filling in the gaps every week al while he was working.

    5) Upper management is mostly comprised of folks who came from administrative positions, because they were able to mingle with the VP's around the water cooler. Those folks eventually hire some of their buddies and you have a technology company headed by ex-security managers, secretaries, HR reps, and general managers, with barely one or two actual engineers making decisions.

    6) The harder you work the more a project or program manager will try to take credit for your work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ultra-Prologic,
    My co-workers, supervisor, and I all used to enjoy coming to work. Please don't purchase another small company just to ruin them. Please find a small business in another industry and ruin them instead. I hear the U.S. needs more bakeries.

    If you insist on staying in the technology industry:

    1) Your company should not be comprised of admin-staff leading engineering teams.

    2) Get rid of the severely overpaid dead weight by looking around you (even in the mirror) and realize who is truly contributing to the company.

    3) Empower your engineers to make decisions. Be willing to admit and state that you don't know a certain technology and actually listen to your engineers.

    4) Solve the timesheets issues. Employees dread coming to work not knowing how to fill out their timesheets and wasting their vacation and sick time, because you refuse to give them guidance.
