    I have been working at Ultra Electronics

    Pros

    Very good talent amongst senior staff as well as software engineers. Management style supports decision making at lower levels. The company is re-gaining it's ability to get things done.

    Cons

    The company is still struggling to regain its ability to win new contracts and customers. The company seems poised to regain this over the next six to twelve months -- which will begin to accelerate growth. The company continues to be resource constrained and this limits the complete transformation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to balance betweem internal process improvement and business growth. Continue to move towards growth markets (from a technical as well as a vertical standpoint).

    I worked at Ultra Electronics

    Pros

    A paycheck, and decent benefits. Not much else.

    Cons

    You will treated like a piece of furniture, if you're lucky, and unless you're an engineer or developer, seen as completely expendable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The current president of the company is lost and has no idea how to turn this company around. He even has admitted, to a room full of people, that he's not a "numbers person" and the financial aspect means nothing to him. This may help to explain the recent rash of layoffs. The total lack of communication and the attitude that the employees should just be happy to be employed will be just two of the reasons this company will continue on their downward spiral.
