Pros

There is a pool of employees with an incredibly diverse range of talents. Projects are consistently challenging, the work is satisfying, and instances of pidgeonholing employees are rare. The work environment is extraordinarily flexible and accommodating.

Cons

For most positions pay is around 10-20% below industry standard. Professional development, while not inhibited, is rarely encouraged. As such, professional growth is largely an independent pursuit. Corporate incentives are either token or non-existent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

With only an exception or two, Project Managers are knowledgeable and wholly competent. Projects are run very cohesively and, as such, the quality of our results is demonstrable - for now. Senior management, however, is mostly disassociated from the workforce.

As of now company growth seems to be dictated by the whims of stockholders rather than projected industry demand. While there is certainly a need to grow as a company, the current directive is overly aggressive and poorly managed. As a result the quality of our products in certain markets has been steadily declining as we divert attention to attaining unrealistic expectations. Dissemination of corporate information needs to occur more regularly and with clearer, reasonable objectives. The average employee, on the whole, needs to be made aware of where we sit as a company and be given opportunity to grow within. The alternative is to continue watching the turnover rate rise and the quality of product fall.

    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.
