I have been working at Universal Electronics (CA) full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

* There is quite a bit of flexibility in how and where the work is done, as long as it is completed in a timely manner.
* The pay is average/decent, although I can't speak for others at the company.

Cons

* Managment is often unaware of the difference between "quality" of engineering versus "quantity". That is, they believe that throwing more engineers on a job, can get it done faster. However many of these engineers are right out of college and located thousands of miles away in India, which makes joint development projects difficult at best.
* Amount of vacation time stinks, it takes 5 years with the company to get the 3rd week.

Advice to Management

* Look for quality engineers only, and when one is hired that can't cut the mustard, let them go.
