I worked at Universal Electric Corporation full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The company has had continued growth in this industry during my tenure. The average environment is good with their normal snags you find anywhere. The owners care about the company and realize, and I mean truly realize, the major component to their success is the employees getting the job done. Benefits package is awesome if you take full advantage. The owners and management agree that an employee informed about the company's standing and direction is an employee with a vested interest. This is serves in the matches mandatory company meeting.

Cons

The cons were not really that different from other jobs such as the drama between departments or shifts or employees. The big con that led to my departure was the time frame for advancement in the company, which I believe is due to the size of the company.

Advice to Management

Don't overlook ideas not filtered up through lifers. Have a possible route to suggest straight to the top.

    I worked at Universal Electric Corporation (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The employees ("do-ers") are a blessing to work with and are some of the most talented people I have ever met.
    The facility is new, very nice, and has comfortable working conditions.
    The owners care deeply about the company and the working-man (or woman).
    The company is investing a lot into equipment and processes.

    Cons

    Employees that go above and beyond get paid almost the same as employees that slack off and do next to nothing. (Good employees are not rewarded or appreciated)
    Most of management has been promoted into their roles due to tenure, not experience or value and this can be extremely frustrating at times, especially given that most of them are very self-serving.
    Sales says "yes" to almost any customer request, so a lot of times you are expected to build a product that is almost impossible to assemble. It also doesn’t help that Engineering’s designs have issues a lot of the time and their managers are never available

    Advice to Management

    Hire more experienced managers that care about more than just themselves.
