Pros

The knowledge and experience in aviation and avionics here is excellent. The commitment to customer service and satisfaction is better than anywhere else I have ever worked or conducted business. The employees relate to one another like family. Pay is competitive for the market and there is a great benefits package to go along with it.

Cons

The company is making strides to bring unity among all it's divisions but there is still room to improve. Still have individual locations carrying out there functions as silos and not under one company umbrella. I still recommend this employer though as a great place to work.

Advice to Management

Continue efforts to have open communication with the employees on a regular basis. Continue funding training opportunities. Continue asking the employees within the company for their ideas on how to contribute to the company success.

    Pros

    Universal Avionics (UA) provides a solid and steady place to work. Most departments have a low attrition rate. Management and staff are professional and there isn't much office drama. Privately-owned company. Self-insured. Very nice facility with lots of office space. Plenty of parking.

    Cons

    This is a very staid company and the pay is abysmal. This is not the place to come for working in a fast-paced, innovative environment. There is little room for career advancement. Promotions seldom occur unless someone has vacated their post by retiring or leaving. There seems to be a perceived division between corporate employees and staff employees, almost like a company "caste system". The benefits are okay, but far from stellar. Tuition reimbursement rates have not kept up with the true cost of education. Medical premiums are high. Did I mention the pay is abysmal?

    Advice to Management

    Create an environment that cultivates dynamism. There's no vibrancy in this company; morale is low. This company once had employees excited about coming to work, but has since failed to nourish that enthusiasm. There is little show of appreciation for employees. The fact that UA does not appreciate its employees enough to fund a holiday party without mandating a fee is indicative of how little this company values its' employees and their morale. The benefits package is in dire need of updating to reflect the fact that the year is currently 2010, not 1994. There is little in the way of encouragement for employees to continue development and growth; it's critical to offer more opportunities for career advancement and promotion. Otherwise, employees atrophy. Although money isn't everything, it is something. It would be nice if employees were compensated with real, competitive wages.

    Pros

    After decades of running the business the same way senior management is discussing direction, purpose and focus on what will take the company to success in the next decade. Glad to see them having the difficult discussions that come with running a business. A lot of fresh talent has come into the company bringing renewed energy, outside perspectives and ideas.

    Cons

    A lot of tenured employees trying to ride out to retirement without wanting to put any energy into the future. Too much "just tell me what to do" mentality among staff.

    Advice to Management

    Pay and benefits structure is sound. Keep focusing on direction, better communication, swapping out stale employees with more energetic, driven ones to take the company to the next big era.
