Great staff with incompetent management

N/A (Former Employee)
Scottsdale, AZ

I worked at Universal Laser Systems full-time for more than 5 years

ProsI would have to agree with the previous reviews, great staff, decent pay, and pretty good environment.

ConsAgain, I agree with the previous reviews. There is nearly ZERO advancement and the benefits are terrible (no retirement plan and horrible insurance). There are no reviews, therefore, you will never receive a raise, ever, whether it be for cost of living or performance.
The company only hires from without, which is an indication of how it treats it's employees. In other words, they hire for a position but then management believes that your ideas are worthless. This leads to EXTREME micromanagement and lack of direction. Imagine a ship at sea in a storm without a rudder, that would pretty much describe the management ethos and performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a great amount of potential in the employees that have been hired. They are your greatest asset, utilize them. Employees bring ideas and experience to the table, this in an incalculable asset to ANY company. It would be nice it management could see this and not grind this asset to dust under their micromanagement heel.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Conedy or Tragedy?

Marketing (Former Employee)
Scottsdale, AZ

I worked at Universal Laser Systems full-time for more than 3 years


Pros: Nice environment. Good neighborhood. Pay can be decent for the right people.… Cons: Executive level management is: extreme micro-management and no leadership whatsoever. Sometimes the proletariat can still do useful things, but most of the time they are… Advice to Senior Management: The formula for success at this company appears to be: 1-While accomplishing nothing, actually hurt the company. 2-Repeat the owner's ideas back to him in… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
