I don’t know how y’all feel about solution consulting in this bowl but I just wanted to give props to my company UKG real quick. Last week they sent out an email reminding us that they’ve been covering travel for medical or reproductive services for years, long before it became a hot button issue. Feels like it’s been important to them for a long time because it’s the right thing to do and not just because everyone else is offering it lately.

    Medical and dental coverage paid at 100%, decent stock options, 401k match has just increased, potential to work from home when needed.

    Lots of favoritism, buddy system is important and the way to success or advancement. Training is not great for employees.

    Poor leadership; No longer a great place to work

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Medical benefits are still very good, as are the 401k match and other many benefits. Below the leadership layer, there are a lot of smart, talented, and lovely people, who want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Ultimate Software wasn’t perfect, but its once-remarkable culture doesn’t exist anymore. Nothing remains of what made this such a special place where people were PROUD to work; and no one in a position of power seems to care. Communication from leadership (when it happens at all) is too little, too late, and is patronizing, inauthentic and uninspiring. Trust seems to be non-existent, instead we get micromanagement and marching orders, which are toxic to innovation and doing quality work as a team. Giving an appearance of busy-ness via vanity metrics has become more important than a thoughtful approach to progress. Blatant favoritism is widespread in recent promotions, decision-making and prioritization. Post-merger leadership (almost exclusively from the Kronos stable) has been incurious, distrustful, even disdainful of prior practices.

    Pros

    Great company and benefits with lots of potential to grow. Free breakfast every first Monday and Birthday cake every month. Employees are friendly and polite.

    Cons

    Middle management is a political haven. Best advice to anyone is to keep quite and your head down despite what they say about we are an open door environment, if you speak up it will backfire. Favoritism runs rampant and don't be surprised if you are forced into a different role than what you were hired for. Classic bait switch under certain management.......
