    I have been working at Universal Well Services full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The environment at UWS is rather laid back and most everybody knows everybody. All employees are nice and respectful and ones you can see yourself spending time with outside the job.

    Cons

    The benefits and payscale are not the greatest, but something is better than nothing. Advancing is extremely difficult to do too.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better opportunities for employees to advance, better health benefits and competitive pay wages.

    Except for a few isolated events, Universal has been a good company to work for and has treated me well.

    I have been working at Universal Well Services full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The majority of the employees are friendly and good to work with/for.

    Cons

    Benefits are lacking. Paid holidays seem to be at the bare minimum. Vacation schedule is not aggressive enough. There are no incentives for salaried employees. No compensation time for salaried employees that work long hours (60-90+/wk).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase holidays and vacation time. Review salary's compared to the industry. Implement more structure and consistency in regards to positions throughout the company.

    I have been working at Universal Well Services

    Pros

    The job comes with a lot of freedom. A self-starter can get a lot accomplished as long as it does not require collaboration with mgmt or other departments. Almost all of the employees are pleasant with good intentions.

    Cons

    The job comes with a lot of freedom. A person with no drive can survive with the company for a very long time with no negative repercussions. Mgmt lacks the use of tools like job descriptions, evaluations, positive reinforcement, deliverables, measurables, deadlines, disciplinary action, etc. Benefits are sub-par, especially for new employees, specifically with vacation and sick time. Compensation is sub-par when compared with competitors. Most of all, there is a stark disconnect between corporate and field level personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start managing employees. Set high expectations and concrete deliverables. Reward, discipline, or terminate accordingly. Communicate downward. Get back to the basics and build good management practices. Your employees worth keeping will enjoy the change.
