- 5.0FEATURED REVIEWAug 23, 2023Associate Director, ConsultingCurrent Employee, less than 1 year
Ulteig prides themselves on their people-focused culture and is one of the main reasons I chose to accept a new job opportunity with the company after a long career at a large corporation. Often organizations publish and promote their values but struggle to exemplify said values. Finding a company like Ulteig, who maintains their commitment to their employees on their value system, is rare. Ulteig truly lives and breathes a people-focused culture; supporting work-life balance, growth opportunities and one of the most GENUINE work cultures I have ever been a part of. Every person you talk to and work with truly cares, wants to do a good job and is motivated to support the growth & success of the company. Ulteig is transparent, communicative about future strategies and really empowers all employees to socialize innovative ideas. My onboarding experience was incredible: From the very first call I received from a recruiter all the way to my first day, I experienced amazing communication, very clear expectations/next steps, clean hand-off between recruitment and HR, very organized instructions and to-do lists, and most importantly, I didn’t feel like another number being hired but rather the company cared about me, as an individual. Thank you Ulteig for an amazing first few months!
Too new to determine any cons.1Ulteig Response3mo

Many, many pros. A couple of standouts to highlight: Very high emphasis placed on valuing each employee - it is clear that I am an asset as an employee. Many opportunities to develop (vertical and/or horizontal), development is backed by robust support of managers and the company. Development strategies are integrated into your workload and align personal, company, and Client success (win-win-win). Very strong cultural values that provide real benefit to employees and Clients and enable business success. Values are achievable, applicable, and sensible, and thoughtfully reiterated. Leadership leads by example, regularly recognizing and rewarding employees that showcase Ulteig's cultural values. Work-life balance is exceptional. Flexibility to work remote, hybrid, or in-office, flex time and great PTO package. Leadership is transparent about business status and communicates frequently, including communicating forward looking risks and risk management plans. Leaders demonstrate strong technical, business, and personal acumen, and are a highly functional Leadership team. Ulteig also has an internal leadership development program to home-grow the next generation of high performing leaders.
Rapid company growth - this presents a significant challenge but is the "right kind" of con. While the business is evolving to support growth, a side effect is a lot of change and resulting confusion about how to do things as practices evolve. It is important to note that Ulteig leadership is keenly aware and active in implementing change management strategies to combat the impactful side effects of growth.2Ulteig Response3mo

Though I have been with Ulteig for less than 6 months, so far I have truly enjoyed working for such a forward-thinking organization that provides well thought-out resources for all employee-owners. It feels like a true team environment that values collaboration, where everyone's growth and career development is important, and continuous improvement is prioritized. I feel very heard by my direct supervisor and team manager and I've never worked for an employer that listened to employee feedback and actually did something with it so I especially appreciate that aspect of Ulteig.
Though there is a strong focus on building diversity at Ulteig, like most engineering firms, there's a lot more work to be done in that area. There's also room for growth in communication between departments and documenting new processes in an accessible manner in an ever-changing company and field. However, it seems that Ulteig is actively working on addressing all of these areas and senior leaders are transparent in sharing updates on steps taken.Ulteig Response2mo
Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review about your experiences at Ulteig. It's great to see your insights across so many different dimensions. I appreciate the comment about room for improvement in inter-department communications. I hope you've shared that with your leadership team, and please feel free to reach out to me as well to discuss.

Ulteig is a great place to work. There is great senior management a progressive and innovative culture and lots of opportunity for growth in both technical and managerial respects. The work is interesting and usually pretty meaningful. There are strong relationships with clients and we have good internal standards with a strong emphasis on continuing to grow and maintain those standards as well as the employees.
It's still consulting. There's always struggles with workloads, deadlines, team quality, and the normal consulting work. Ulteig has grown rapidly and some of the systems (resourcing in particular) are lagging that growth and there are times when it shows, however, all of the managers I know are more than willing to jump in and re-resource or whatever is needed to fix the issue. Doesn't necessarily take it away but shows they're aware and are trying to help solve the issue.1Ulteig Response2mo
Thanks for taking the time to write such a detailed review about your experiences at Ulteig. I think you've represented really well the positive aspects of our culture, the challenges related to a growing organization and the intentional efforts to prepare our organization and team members for the future.

Invests in their employee owners: - Often hires interns full time - Provides tuition reimbursement, supports professional development opportunities, covers professional licensure exam costs - Allows cross-team/department collaboration to give employees the experiences they desire Provides a flexible workplace: - Flexible hours are encouraged, it is well understood that everyone has a life outside of work - Supports working parents - Supports employees who are attending college Great culture, doesn't feel forced: - People genuinely want to get to know you and try to make you feel included - Employees go into the office willingly for connection opportunities - ERG's provide support to under-represented groups
One of the only negatives of working at Ulteig is the lack of paid holidays and time off in general. They offer the bare minimum time off. Ulteig is a great employer who appears to care about their employees so it's confusing why this one important benefit has been neglected.2Ulteig Response6mo
Thanks so much for taking the time to write such a detailed review about your experiences and perspectives at Ulteig. I appreciate your capturing the long list of Pros - they are well-aligned with the typical feedback we receive. With regard to the Cons you mentioned, we are aware that we have an opportunity with holidays, and we'll review again the opportunity to make a change for next year. For others reading this, and wondering about 'the 'bare minimum' time off reference, Ulteig starts full-time employees at 15 days of Paid Time Off (PTO). That number is increased as an employee's tenure builds. For new hires who have professional experience, we provide tenure credit when providing the new hire's PTO accrual rate at their start date.

First off, the culture here is fantastic. The team is full of supportive, caring individuals who want to see each other succeed. Everyone is willing to lend a helping hand and collaborate on projects to ensure the best possible outcome. Another reason is the opportunities for growth and development. The company invests in its employees and provides ample resources for professional growth. There are always new challenges and projects to work on, which keeps things exciting and helps everyone continue to learn and improve. Finally, Ulteig truly values work-life balance. The company understands that employees have lives outside of work and encourages them to take time off to recharge and focus on personal priorities. This creates a positive, healthy work environment that helps everyone thrive. Overall, I feel incredibly fortunate to work at Ulteig. The people, culture, and opportunities for growth make it an extraordinary place to be.
Not much diversity in the CXO team.1Ulteig Response3mo
Thanks so much for the positive review about life at Ulteig. I am happy to see how much you value the culture, specifically related to opportunities for growth, teammate support and work-life balance. With regard to your comment on CXO diversity, for those who don't know the terminology, the CXO at Ulteig represent its c-suite leadership team, two of which are women. It's an opportunity for change that we recognize.

Absolutely love being treated like an adult. I am allowed to be remote and still be very involved in team. I feel very included and welcomed even as remote employee. The folks i get to work with are bright and very helpful, I am learning a lot and plan on retiring here so long as they keep remote option.
I cant think of any cons, I have never been so proud and happy to work with a company like Ulteig, my work life balance is great 10/10 and my carreer development is great as well. You do have to be a bit proactive as remote guy but I think that goes hand in hand with being an adult and speaking up when you need help or work.1Ulteig Response3mo
Thanks for taking the time to write such a positive review about your experiences at Ulteig. I think you captured it well that hiring folks where they live and trusting them to work in the way that is best for them is treating them like adults. I appreciate your comments about the learning opportunities as well - we'll keep them coming!

I love the teamwork, the positive camaraderie, and the way Ulteig invests in employees. In the time I have been here, I have had opportunities to increase my pay, to earn promotions, and my bosses have sat down with me to discuss how I want to grow in my career and how I can partner with Ulteig to gain experience, identify roles I can work my way into and build relationships with others who will support my growth as well.
I wish I could see my coworkers in person more often. We are located all over the US, so it requires travel. Thankfully, we are able to do this at least once a year so far.1Ulteig Response3mo

Human element and culture of this company is bar none! They care about you as a person and your family when those times come you need to take care of your loved ones. The spirit of success surrounds you and the company will push you to be the best you can be in a very healthy and positive way.
None to speak of for this company.1Ulteig Response2mo
