    Pros

    There was potential to grow with the company. Managers was the most helpful to me. Talked to customers on the phone daily.

    Cons

    The shift was horrible, and it was going to take a long time to get moved off of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    Former Employee - Network Manager in Enschede (Netherlands)

    I worked at Universal Electronics (CA) full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was able to understand and learn how an international diverse organization used IPSec, a mix of Open Source and proprietary software and modern firewall technologies managed to create and maintain a very cost effective intercontinental network.

    Cons

    There was a rather difficult international political situation between the European and the US IT departments. This was caused by a lack of overall IT direction, the existence of a few ivory towers and several corporate acquisitions. Just before I left this issue was being addressed by fresh IT management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integration and cooperation!

    I worked at Universal Electronics (CA) full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Overall the company treats its employees well, with perks, nice accomadations and descent pay.

    Cons

    It really depends on who your manager is. If you happen to have a bad one than you will be treated poorly in your dept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let your subordinates know that they are appreciated by connecting with them. Make sure supervisors/managers are approachable. Train supervisors better, because if you have a supervisor that treats you respectfully then you will have a better team.

    Former Employee - Senior Accountant in Santa Ana, CA

    I worked at Universal Electronics (CA) full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary; will only get a bonus for non-managers if the company is doing well.
    The hours are actually not bad in the accounting department; some overtime during quarter end and year end but it's expected.
    People are friendly.
    Okay perks, some internal events and nice annual Christmas party.
    The CEO holds a quarterly all-hands meeting.

    Cons

    Because it's not a big company, growth opportunities are limited.
    Vacation sucks; 10 days to start, 15 days after 5th year, and 20 days after 10th year.
    Senior management = old boys' club.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.
