Pros – UR invests heavily in its people and lets you do your job. Even though it's a massive corporation you still get the feeling that your voice is being heard. This is especially nice when it comes to being part of the strategy side of a business.
Cons – The only down side I have experienced so far is that for a diverse company we try to use a "one size fits all" approach to running the business units.
Advice to Senior Management – My only advice ( directed to the board level ) is to not settle or promote the "one size fitsa all" mentality. While I realize we need to focus on the overall health of the company I think this can be achieved by letting the business units have some autonomy in terms of how they operate.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Don't have any at all.
Cons – Super micromanagement. This branch has been set up to fail. First of the year they cut our wages and broke our contract, forcing us to work 8 days on, 6 days off at 12 hours a day. Transport equipment is older and constantly breaking down, severely short on mechanics so the guys on shift have to bust there ass all day to try to meet company demanded goals. Poor moral, everyone will be quitting soon.
Advice to Senior Management – None because they won't listen anyways.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Great Salary+Commissions
Nice Company Vehicle
Cons – Old Equipment
Push back and lack of new equipment
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to your people, encourage and mandate an open door policy. When opportunities arise INVEST, and conserve on areas that are recessed.
