    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ultra Petroleum full-time

    Pros

    There were some really nice people at the bottom working very hard to keep things going.

    Cons

    There was way to much work at people's desk and management has no idea what is going on. They usually push their work on to the people below them so they can schmooze or go golf and show little respect for the hard work of their employees. There is very little opportunity for growth or training and they use threats of withholding bonuses and raises to keep people working late and overtime.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees some respect and realize who is doing a lot of the hard work.

    I worked at Ultra Petroleum full-time

    Pros

    I wish there were some pros but beware, there are none. This place does not value its employees in the slightest

    Cons

    Be prepared to be just another replaceable employee here. The managers only care about themselves and will work you to the bone without recognition. There has been high turnover in several departments and HR does not care to reprimand the managers that create that problem. Terrible place to work. Do not be fooled.

    I worked at Ultra Petroleum

    Pros

    Great amount of work to do, convinced that Mike Watford is a good CEO

    Cons

    Middle and Operations Management totally out of touch and not demonstrating any vision for the scope of project size and the amount of FEED required to do things right.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at who's really getting the job done in your operations, down below your manager level.
