    Pros

    Compensation packages aren't the worst. Salaries are average, health benefits gutted as of 2014.

    Cons

    Management by intimidation and verbal abuse
    Quarterly layoffs
    Myopic leadership shuns innovation
    Boys club reward themselves and fire everyone else on quarterly basis

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves instead of skilled employees so management that is actually competent can come in.

    Pros

    Pays good for what I do. Lost of work to be done and most of the people left are good people just worried alot.

    Cons

    Things are getting real close to rock bottom. Not alot of people left. No one left...but I am still replaceable with someone better.

    Advice to Management

    team work, team work, team work!...communication!

    Pros

    I survived the cuts and lay offs

    Cons

    Pay isn't anything to talk about. Communication is practically non existent. Worried if Ultralife will still be there next year.

    Advice to Management

    Tell your employee's what's going on. What is the sales dept. doing? Are we getting any orders? Why don't we have enough inventory in the plant?

    Loved working with the customers and felt rewarded by the value they placed on the service level they received.

    Pros

    Global company with wide range of diverse customers. Gained invaluable knowledge and experience in dealing with an international marketplace.

    Cons

    Too much restructuring and downsizing created unstable environment and large number of highly qualified people have gone by the wayside.

    Advice to Management

    More strategic, managed growth and better decision making. Need to place more value on employees.
