    Pros

    "Ultra invests in its product lines to ensure that the next generation of technology is delivered sooner than others can achieve.

The company has a diversified product offering that secures business even during the sequester. Excellent benefits. Strong leadership and values. Management accessible. Open-door policy. Great work-life balance." "Ultra Electronics is a company for life, having joined almost 9 years ago now. The employee benefits are vast and are the best I’ve seen at any company. Staff and managers are friendly and professional and always encourage employee development.

    Cons

    Read the 'Pros.' Real people don't talk like this - HR and corporate communication experts talk like this. When a company has HR stuffing Glassdoor with positive reviews and and superlatives like "it feels like a family" its a sign of corporate culture. If you want to work for a culture like this - Ultra is for you.

    Advice to Management

    Attempts to stuff Glassdoor are transparent. Treat your employees better let them write the reviews not your HR department.
