    Pros

    The coffee room was nice and so were the bathrooms. the office was set up, interestingly..

    Cons

    Reviews are useless. Pay inaccuracies. No upward mobility. No training provided.

    Advice to Management

    Stop and look at your most valuable asset. It is you people. Train them and listen to them. Stop finger pointing. Stop fault finding. Stop listening to third party people and do your own review of your own employees.


  3. lack of empowerment from managers, finger point, stressful and unfriendly environment, work overload,unrealistic goals.

    Pros

    The most pleasant thing about working for UTEC would be the opportunity to travel across the globe but you don't get to see or do much of anything while there.

    Cons

    Overloaded with demands to complete tasks that are unrealistic in a small timeframe. Lack of support and assistance other than a lot of finger pointing and call you out on mistakes you've made. We're only human, that's how we learn and grow professionally.

    Advice to Management

    Stop and take the time to ask how things are going and what can you do to help. I would stay away from this company since their company has been acquired recently and more unpleasant things will start to trickle down from the parent company. Made the mistake of leaving a good job but a bit longer drive to this company. Lesson learned, thanks UTEC but no thanks!

    Pros

    UTEC is a company which follows latest technology in the survey industry.

    Cons

    Cost control can be improvised to a certain extent.

    Advice to Management

    To carefully assess performance of an employee and not to take on board any observations from third party sources. Try and provide as much support to the project management / operations staff so that they do not succumb to pressures of work.

    Pros

    Nothing. Some co workers are friendly and helpful.

    Cons

    Dictatorship. Having an organization chart for show, HR/Admin does not know what they suppose to do. Backstabbing common. Rush work. People do not comply with rules esp. those close to the top management. Top Mgmt disinterested in the welfare or benefit of staff, only listen to one or two and never take time to verify the fact.

    Advice to Management

    Get your act together and start to operate like a proper organization not a family business; verify the fact before you make judgement, treat staff with respect and communicate more not instruct always.
