Pros

Very flat management structure. Very positive work environment to talk to senior managers. A lot of different areas of interest for the company, so you garner a breadth of experience.

Cons

As a small company, there is a slightly greater risk in your longevity, but management is very good about keeping employees informed about the health of the company.

    Pros

    Great company to work for overall. Very competitive benefits, great people.

    Cons

    Two separate offices geographically that still must coordinate their activities. This lead to some "us vs them" mentality that was a challenge to deal with sometimes. Regrettably, with the downturn in the defense industry, they have had some struggles gaining additional contracts, while the ones they do have are continuing to shrink.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to keep the corporate staff informed of activities at the two locations. Open lines of communication are a must for success in the future!

    Pros

    For about 85% of my tenure at USI, they employed me as a Country Manager in Afghanistan. While deployed, they took very good care of me both in compensation and benefits. While not deployed, they actively engaged in finding active work to keep me on as a full-time employee. 90% of the corporate operations staff is quite capable, responsive, friendly, and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Didn't follow through with regards to employee evaluations--not conducive to improving performance or building one's skills.

    Advice to Management

    Be loyal to the folks who deploy overseas to warzones by giving them the occasional bone, i.e. keep them on 1099 status to give them the opportunity to develop ideas for business development.
