    Respect is a two-way street that management does not understand

    I worked at Universal Consulting Services

    Pros

    The only good thing is the benefits but I expect in the coming years that will become similar to all other companies.

    Cons

    The company mainly hires managers that have no IT experience. Some have no managerial experience at all. If you do work here, be aware that you be required to give respect but you will not get respect. Be aware that some managers like to take off during lunch (2 hour ones) and do outside activities that should not be done. There are some managers that think that drinking, while on the job, is more important than getting the job done. If you attend the Christmas party, be prepared to see a lot of drinking and behavior unbecoming of managers and senior leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are going to be an IT company, then hire managers with real Information Technology experience not those with just a degree with it. It is sad when your tech savvy people have to completely brief managers on the planned technology prior to going into a briefing. You are only hurting the company by doing this. Saving a dollar by hiring someone without experience will not help the company in the long term but could potentially hurt it.

    Former Employee - TBI SME in Falls Church, VA

    I worked at Universal Consulting Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great experience and opportunity to work with military medicine teams involved in PH and TBI

    Cons

    The PD is written vaguely; thus leaving much room for various interpretation. TBI topics only consumed half my work day divided with program and project representation unrelated to TBI.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearly write PDs to reflect employees expectations and improve written professional growth widgets for advancement from the SME level.
