Pros

The paycheck is above market average. They have multiple projects to run, the business is more stable than its competitors.

Cons

-lots of managers with no degree, rude to the employee, and have no respect to anyoe
-employess either worry about layoff or play office politics
-project management are poor, always have to wait the last minute to get response, than work overtime
-no promotion or raise until you complain. You have to be your boss's buddy to get promoted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

get rid of the old "Buddy System", promote people with talent and knowledge. Encourage training and industry knowledge share. build up a career development plan for every employee

    Pros

    Good talent in the technical pool. Pretty good responsiveness to project needs. Company revenue growth provides stable employment in any job class. New marketshare opportunities are opening new working locations. Many construction services and technical services opportunities exist with this company.
    Employee working with UniversalPegasus should expect to have a stable income position with benefits.

    Cons

    Poor company planning with respect to "company growth" and "career growth". Less than average performance in company directives/coorporate communications with employees. Less than average training and quality monitoring. Poor emphasis and support on career objectives and individual performance/growth hinders morale of leadership and technical staff. Most important goal is to meet profit targets set by financial company board of directors.
    Employees working with UniversalPegasus should expect to bill as many hours as possible to project budgets to "maximize profit" where project completion metric comes later.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate leadership and communication responsibilities to lower managers and follow-up to see if things are "filtering" to employees. Try to manage employees as a group instead of telling individual employees one-on-one. Try small steps with respect to receiving emplyee feedback on how best to help manage instead of direct employees.

    Pros

    In normal circumstances the pay is fairly good for someone with a limited education, but for the field it is very low. Decent job if you're desperate and need the short term money.

    Cons

    No great opportunities for advancement. A promotion means that you are in a higher position, but also that you have less experience in that position than someone else so you are more likely to be laid off with no chance to go back down to your original position. The work is unpredictable. They do not care about your performance when it comes to raises or advancement. It’s who your friends are in the company or just being at the right place at the right time. Regardless if it is your fault or not, if the job you are currently on is ending there is no reassignment based on experience, you simply get laid off. Paychecks are decent overall, but hourly is only a step out of minimum wage so overtime doesn't help all that much. For the past 3 years there have been no bonuses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. Base a person's wage and whether or not to be laid off on experience, not friends and luck.
