    I have been working at Uponor full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very relaxed office culture, with much flexibility when it comes to schedules. Many internal programs are offered to allow Employees to live healthy lives. Opportunity to work remotely, with flexible schedules depending on the department you work in. Great health benefits.

    Cons

    Flexible schedules are not consistant throughout the company, it depends on your manager and department. Salary is on the lower end of competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase greater training and developement for supervisors and managers. Reward employees wanted to "better" themselves by training/mentoring into upper level positions.

    Pros

    Immediate manager is truly amazing. A real mentor.

    Cons

    Senior Management in the U.S. and the senior manager in Canada are completely inept. They do not practice what they preach and focus on short-term wins vs. long-term growth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Senior Management Committee and the senior person in Canada need to look beyond the current week and concentrate on really advancing the organization, rather than just keeping their jobs.

    I worked at Uponor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    In comparison with Russian companies of the same size not bad social package and salary is allways paid on time. In some departments work is fine

    Cons

    In Moscow location is bad- far from metro and near railroads, low level sales staff, salaries are below the market, soviet corporate culture, poor communication between sales dept and others, often useless and even distructive back and forward changes in corporate structure. No high-profile managers who can be a teacher for young professionals and managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Russia is Edem for European companies because of many economy reasons, and Russian office is deserved stronger management team. Low level management team can't manage high-profile staff.

    Former Employee - Corporate R&D and Systems Manager Controls in Upplands-Väsby (Sweden)

    I worked at Uponor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    As long as I was working at Uponor I was very pleased and everyone seemed to appreciate my work. I left to start my own business in Finance, it could hardly be considered a threat to Uponor which is in the sewage plastic pipe business. I even made one of the Uponor directors business partner in my company, and it wasn't until after I removed him from my board that Uponor started screw me, so that's good.

    Cons

    Since I gave notice Uponor has removed my name from several international patents, ignored to pay any innovation rewards, and even refused to provide me with a certification of employment documenting my position and work. Thus, Uponor has violated both international patent laws and Swedish employment laws, but they don't seem very concerned. E.g. the Swedish CEO recently commented the missing certification of employment by writing that I should consider it sufficient to have good recommendations on LinkedIn...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As one wise man once commented "When a company starts to screw its own people it is too late for good advice.
