    The workers are helpful and most try to do their best

    Don't let your employees be taken advantage of by giving them more and more work and less time to do it in.

    Pros

    good back end support. time difference to Home Office was a problem but staff helped out

    Cons

    Very disorganized and always in flux. Never sure who was in charge lots of turn over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get people on the ground from corporate experience background rather than all new to company team who have no idea how company runs and available support

    Good People - Understaffed (DTZ on HMS)

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA

    I have been working at UGL Unicco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The site is separate from the company as a whole so this review is for Harvard Medical School's site only. At HMS the pay is competitive and your coworkers are good to work with.

    Cons

    The site is understaffed in many trades. The workload is much higher than what the current amount of staff can handle.
    Upper Management micro manages, looking into everything you do, doesn't treat employees well.
    There is a high turn over of Individuals. When people leave it takes up to 6 months to replace that individual, in that time others are given their workload making your job very difficult. This happens often!
    There is no growth. Each person has a job an they do that job and that's it. No chance of moving up, no sort of career path what so ever.
    I would not suggest this site as a place to work to any of my friends, or anybody i like. Do not work here.
    The FMC contract is up every 5 years so hopefully 2017 the next company will higher the correct levels of staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove a few key people at the top of the site. This will increase moral.

    Pros

    Management is very flexible with schedules

    Cons

    Watch your pay stub. All your hours may not be paid out in a timely manner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees need better encentives in order to feel appreciated better. Employee's work hard with little pay and no benefits for part timers. Management should offer alternative methods to keep staff motivated. Employees should want to make a career out of UGL instead of being just a job.

    Pros

    Training, training is one of the main essentials that going for the company, it needs to expand even further to be more site specific in compliance with the vendor.

    Cons

    There's to much nepotism, no matter how much you try and try to work around it and even if you bring it up to management awareness ........they give you that "dare headlight look".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    NO FRATERNIZATION with you employees! Keep it professional! On and OFF from the work site, it doesn't take much for someone or anyone to notice when your not professing who you are and don't forget who you WORK for, keep in mind who are you are representing.......look at the big picture.........be professional and you'll get your respect.
