Wasted years I can never get back

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Ultra Electronics

ProsA paycheck, and decent benefits. Not much else.

ConsYou 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 Senior ManagementThe 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
