Pros

Good location within the city. Universal is focusing on better overall health of its employees and have provided seminars, contests, etc to benefit them. A recent reorganization has helped clear up the overall structure of the company. The company seems to have a good foot hold in the industry. Pay is good.

Cons

The HR group seems to have hands tied due to the buddy system that is still in place even though a reorganization has occured. It does not matter how long you worked with the company but how much you make the company. Promotions are only given if a vacancy opens or if you complain. They pay well to hope you put up with the lack of middle management. Training is not available to those who work with growing technologies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let HR enforce the company policies accordingly. Do not hire/lay-off based on billable hours but on work ethic and overall worth.

    Pros

    Good pay, relaxed work environment, friendly people. Pipelines are their bread and butter - they are good at that.

    Cons

    For work *not* related to pipelines - Poor work quality, managment and top employees have weak credentials so they are losing contracts to stronger competitors (Fluor, Bechtel, Jacobs, KBR, etc)

    I don't see how this company expands beyond pipelines. Favor loyalty over competence.

    Not the Same after Merger

    Pros

    I joined Pegasus when the two companies, Universal ENSCO and Pegasus International, were still separate entities. Pegasus was a very employee friendly company; the bosses were very concerned with the well being of its employees. It was like working in a family. Then, over the course of the last two years, merger talks were held under the auspices of an outside investor, systems were unified, departments streamlined and the two were made as one, except that...

    Cons

    ... from the point of view of the employees, things have changed a lot. The relation between bosses and employees have not been the same, especially after some of the old time management people left. Departments where the old leaders are still there seem to maintain their old relationships, but where managers have changed the atmosphere has turned a bit uneasy. Things will probably settle down after a while, but for the time being... not every one is loving the change!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Improve communications between different "divisions" of the company. The offshore people do not seem to know that there are opportunities in the onshore group they might be interested in. The onshore doesn't bother to advertise their projects to the other groups. The international group is oblivious to what is happening in the other areas.
    - Be honest in communicating expectations; do not say that there is bright outlook for next year and then turn around and let old timers go. This makes the employees feel uneasy.
