    I worked at UST Global full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    They will have the decency to allow you to recover once you are run through the grinder

    Cons

    Management does not believe or trust anyone. Bad mouths the client. Will work you on 2 accounts and ask you to bill 90 hours a week (45 each). They do not care if you do the work. As long as you bill the client, management will pin the work to someone else. So, do not be the reliable "someone else".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn to keep the work you have by delivering. Then you will not have to work as hard selling new clients.

      ii) like to climb ladder through favoritism than hard work
     iii) want off the books timeoffs

    b) Politics .
    c) Great technical people underutilized and abused.
    d) Middle Level Managers screw up the deliveries
    e) More powerpoints than deliveries.
     f) Offshore driven ,hence onsite teams will get enough opportunities to do "Just In Time" deliveries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lacking Professionalism and Ethics

    Current Employee - Account Manager in Bentonville, AR
    Current Employee - Account Manager in Bentonville, AR

    I have been working at UST Global full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good US HQ location
    Interesting ideas

    Cons

    Lack of professionalism
    Very unethical business practices
    "Sell your soul to make the deal" mentality
    If you are not in the " inner circle" good luck
    Sr. Management should actually be somewhat qualified to do the job - don't hire former recruiters - total joke
    Lacking process
    Really poor communication skills
    They never tell you the full story - shady
    HR- whatever!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure it out - total circus the clients like you only because you have cheap staffing, nothing more

    Pros

    Quality of work is good most of the times.
    Most of the time, work is decent enough to maintain work-life balance, but estimation is usually very poor, which ends up in a lot of extra hours.

    Cons

    Either too much or too little work load, depends on one's luck.
    Management (top to bottom) can't handle pressure, which in turn is placed on the resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve planning, estimation and transparency.

    Low pay for low expectations

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Bentonville, AR
    Current Employee - Project Manager in Bentonville, AR

    I have been working at UST Global full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    As long as you are willing to bill more than you actually work, management will give affirmation when you exaggerate your efforts to the client.  You can collect your paycheck while giving little effort and have an easy way to lengthen your tenure in IT.

    Cons

    No mentoring, no growth, and very few technical experts.  Subject matter experts are rarely promoted and rarely give accolades because they are shifted from project to project to often.  UST does not repay expenses.  You will spend about 2 to 3 thousand dollars a year in order to stay in the good graces of management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try transforming your employees lives for the better, not for the worse.

    Pros

    good co-workers.That all i can say. Sometimes you will get some time for your career development side. This depends on the account where you work.

    Cons

    No more a employee friendly , which was used to be once. Crap HR policies. No Hike in onsite and offshore. you can grow if you know polities. People doing their job are not at all recognized.They will always mentioned about their values and culture. But actually they don't know the exact meaning of those things.there are lots of things to be mentioned. But i need a day to write those. So i am finishing up now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to resolve the issue mentioned in Cons area. i still remember the company was employee friendly,gave good exposure in Technology side and also followed the values and culture.Please try to follow that again.

    Pros

    With quick growth of the company comes quick growth for good employees within the company. They listen to your views and suggestions and nowhere have I seen innovation so fostered and well sponsored.

    Cons

    Growing pains. Some administrative issues of an immature company. Hiring and HR are weak and not in sync with USA culture and practices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Completely revamp HR from top to bottom and rethink hiring practices - especially the concept of drastically low-balling each and every hire.
