I worked at UniversalPegasus International full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Great benefits and 401k, 9/80 work schedule, some really good people work there

Cons

Regular lay offs/poor employee morale. In a 6 month span there were 2 major lay offs based on loss of projects or no new business. Constant turnover/attrition of staff. Lots of baggage/attitudes still prevalent from the Ensco/ Pegasus days. Get over it, move on and for those that can't, show them the door.

Advice to Management

Get as lean as you need to be in one fail swoop. Then go out and land some decent projects and start to build your company again. There is a good core of some really strong people, but they need some direction and something to get excited about.

    I have been working at UniversalPegasus International full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you are a poor designer you will thrive here. The place loves people who are less capable as long as you have people skills and don't care about promotions. If you don't have much skill and are looking to retire while working here then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Huge management turnover. This company is a revolving door for designers, engineers and senior managers. Oddly not much turnover with project managers. Strange. Everyone around them is quitting. This is definitely one of the worst companies I have ever worked for. No wonder clients don't hire us for the big jobs. Because we screw them all up.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. Obviously no one in management is capable of bring this company to the level of Jacobs, Mustang, or Worely Parsons.

    I have been working at UniversalPegasus International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Money is near top pay. Delegation of work is challenging. No politics, Evolving culture, friendly environment. New management seems familiar and knowledgeable. I love coming to work.

    Cons

    Past has been unnecessarily up and down. Uncertain future, past loss of employees is still causing attrition due to uncertainty. Would have been nice if stayed on westside, but move not as bad as expected. Let's move back west!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the current course. Get back to better communication.
