    I worked at Ulteig full-time

    Pros

    Employee owned company that is large enough to take on a technically diverse project portfolio and small enough to actually care about its employees. Ulteig has a casual dress code/ atmosphere and its employees make coming to work enjoyable. I loved working here.

    Cons

    Management seemed a little reactionary to under-performing orders targets and let a few people go during my time as an employee.

    I worked at Ulteig full-time

    Pros

    Great Pay. Great Benefits. Professional offices.

    Cons

    Walking into work on day one and realizing why the guy ahead of you left. Internal workings and interactions are cumbersome and archaic.

    Advice to Management

    None. You still have the great pay and great benefits. Keep it going. Its all about position.

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

    Pros

    The culture at Ulteig is wonderful. Casual dress code, great coworkers and management that cares. Competitive/above average compensation. Work/life balance is important and treated as such. Ulteig is consistently asking employees for feedback and always working to making improvements.

    Cons

    There is some misalignment with job titles and capabilities. I believe Ulteig is aware of that issue and is trying to figure out how to address it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the flexibility. Keep the lines of communication open from bottom to top. Employees are much happier now than they used to be.

    I worked at Ulteig full-time

    Pros

    Ulteig is a great company to work for. The team I served on (Substation Protection and Control) had some really great engineers and designers who taught me a lot about substation design.

    Also, being a 100% employee owned company, the ESOP plan is an added bonus!

    Cons

    No cons, just wish I could've gotten into 3D substation design.

    I have been working at Ulteig full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The PTO accrual rate isn't bad, but then there's a stigma that is associated with using it too. It's a good place to work if you're into routine design, but don't expect to innovate much.

    Cons

    There seems to be cultural differences between the offices. In some offices, the spoken culture is not what is actively practiced. This makes it difficult to understand what the requirements are to fit in.

    There seems to be a fairly old school system in place to deal with flex time, PTO requests, and work remote options. As a professional salaried employee, I feel more like an hourly technician, but without the OT benefit.

    Advice to Management

    Start practicing what you preach and lead by example.

    Pros

    Company poised for growth under superior CEO leadership team. Strong executive team that truly cares about its employees

    Cons

    None. Opportunities everyday to make a difference and showcase your skills and abilities

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course

    I have been working at Ulteig full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits/ESOP, company size, vision/mission, ambition

    Cons

    Not a lot of support, micro-manager culture, "billable, billable, billable", no respect to "flexible work schedule" claim, no comp time offered whatsoever, you are expected to work 50+ hours/week and monitor email 24/7

    Advice to Management

    "Strategic Planning" and "EMT" meetings are not beneficial to the company, you need to add resources
