Good People - Understaffed (DTZ on HMS)

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Boston, MA

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

ProsThe 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementRemove a few key people at the top of the site. This will increase moral.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Satisfied but could be better

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Milwaukee, WI

I have been working at UGL Unicco full-time for less than a year

ProsManagement is very flexible with schedules

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

Advice to Senior ManagementEmployees 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Eye opening, SURPRISE!

Maintenance Technician (Former Employee)
Memphis, TN

I worked at UGL Unicco

ProsTraining, 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.

ConsThere'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 Senior ManagementNO 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
