Uncertainty
Random layoffs
Contradicting/puzzling memos from management

Advice to Management

Hire and keep good employees = restore confidence
Get good sales people/business developers and go out and get projects. No excuse laying people off for lack of work when other companies are desperate for people
The buddy system needs to go

    I have been working at UniversalPegasus International (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pleanty of opportunities for career growth. The company has seen a pretty remarkable turnaround this year with lots of new faces and new work. Pretty good atmosphere. New corporate culture appears to genuinely value doing interesting things with the employees.

    Cons

    Some of the longer term employees still harp about the "good old days at Universal and Pegasus". the merger was in 2008, they need to look at the company for what it is today.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees; employees have plenty to contribute to improving the company. and that isnt just the simple stuff.

    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.
