    Pros

    Flexible schedule (4-10s offered), supervisors and HR are personable, designing project specific, so a variety of different projects.

    Cons

    Internal office conflict. No collaborative thought between sales and engineering. No bonuses. Difficult to move up with company.

    Advice to Management

    Offer additional educational opportunities for employees. Encourage collaboration between different departments. Offer to match 401k investments.

    Pros

    Because it is a smaller company, if you have the initiative, you can get involved in a wide variety of projects and gain some great experience. Even when you are just starting out, you have the opportunity to tackle big things!

    Cons

    By the same token, it is a small company and sometimes you get stuck doing very monotonous work in between larger projects. You just have to out your nose to the grindstone until you can seize the next opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    With having consistent ownership, the culture seems to be very positive at work. Keeping communication open between management and everyone else makes for a great relationship between the two groups.


  3. Good Pay but Really Bad Management!!!

    Pros

    Good place to go if you plan on retiring in a few years. If a dull and boring career is what you like then UMC has it in spades.

    Cons

    High turnover rates of owners and CEO/Presidents? Only spends money on facilities when its getting ready to sell the comepany to the next investment group.

    Advice to Management

    For CEO/Presidents...don't unpack your bags. Others; don't follow the new hot managment style of the month. Think ahead a bit.
