    Pros

    Quick Interview, never saw anyone get fired

    They are not great for helping you move up. They are client based jobs, so if you want to switch, they wont let you if the client wants to keep you.

    Work to evolve your staff

    pretty good place to work - standard just what you'd expect. Work hard. It's not too bad. You get what you put in to it.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at UGL full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great/Affordable benifits if you are in a salary/management position. Senior management allows site leadership run daily operation without micromanaging if account is turning a profit.

    Cons

    Salary not where it should of been for position but company vehicle made up for the difference. Lucked out on a company vehicle due the amount of driving required for my account. Otherwise only Direct of Operation positions and higher only qualified for a company vehicle.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate salary of management staff at site level.
