I have been working at United Conveyor Corporation full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-Competitive pay
-Good benefits
-Excellent work/life balance
-Relaxed environment for the most part
-Reliable job prospect in the long run

Good place to work, especially for someone who is a family person and prioritizes/values family time. The company has a very conservative culture which can be good or bad depending on person's values and priorities.

Cons

-Not much upward movement opportunities available.
-Very static work environment. Very narrow scope of work
- Provides very little training for the job, hence results in a very slow paced learning experience.
- Lacks on team work. All of the departments are so fragmented from each other

Culture is old, but changing in a slow pace. Complete loyalty, as well as "All American/wholesome" attitude are required to move up. Company should work to provide more dynamic work environment for their new engineers to prepare well rounded professionals/leaders.

Advice to Management

Company should focus on to provide more dynamic work environment for their new engineers to prepare well rounded professionals/leaders.

    Pros

    Modern leadership style. Very little micromanagement. The have a business casual work environment, on site health club. The have a profit sharing program, 401k with a match, half day fridays in the summer. Currently the company is in a major business boom. For an engineer (electrical or mechanical) or Project Managers UCC is a good place to work.

    Cons

    The company is small. In some ways the company is stuck using old processes. For example, keeping records on paper in cabinets. They are not the greatest on training. It is hard to get training approved. Until reciently they have been known for pinching pennies.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management is heading in the right direction. They are working to create change in the company.
