    Pros

    Good people across the company, pay and benefits are competitive

    Cons

    Standard people issues. Honestly, you're going to find people that you disagree with wherever you go. Part of the job is figuring out how to work with others. I'm very surprised by the other reviews of USSI. It's been a very good place to work for me and I've been very happy with my experience overall
