    I have been working at Unitek Information Systems full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    at least there are restrooms and small break rooms in the buildings

    Cons

    Do not work here if you are looking for long-term position.
    Poor management and executives seem to show no value and support to employees. There's no company culture or mission! I guess the only mission that they have is HIGH TURNOVER! Oh, they would open up a position and hire employees, however, they could get rid of the position the following day and of course employees get laid-off.

    Advice to Management

    good luck to your business

    Pros

    Management team has no clue about the business, especially the upper management. So if you are looking for a company to roam around for few months until you get a job in a real company, this is the best place for you.

    Cons

    Don’t even think of a long term career here if you are not friends with the management team. New CEO replaced all long time employees with her friends from home town. She even moved the corporate office to near her home. This company doesn’t even have a mission; I guess the mission is to hang out with friends. All decisions are made based on personal choice even if that is bad for the company.
    If you can’t get a job in Taco Bell; you should work here.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t act like you know everything, because you don’t. Your business book speaks for itself. Under this management Unitek is just counting days...

    Pros

    Some great people to work with, and made some great business contacts.

    Cons

    The company entrusts it's business to a management team that is unethical, and small minded, and the favoritism is incredible. Friendships, and family relationships have no place in the business world, and letting relationship of this nature govern your actions prohibits true talent from growing with the organization. The management team consists of bullies, more worried about protecting their own interests, and those of their friends than the overall health, and growth of the company. Employees cannot openly share ideas or ask questions without those ideas being immediately dismissed. Management is allowed to put people down in public form without consequence....It's just horrible.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone equally, stop playing favorites, stop promoting people simply because your buddies. Trust but VALIDATE, and when someone is in the wrong, hold them responsible...Just admit you made bad choices, and deal with it instead of covering it up.

    Pros

    Small set up so can explore and implement new platforms

    Cons

    Useless management. Too much politics. Full of favoritism. The management has their spy who keeps feeding them all screwed up information. Very bad paymaster. The COO- Nav Bawa is painful to deal with. Has his whole family employed in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Try to give better services to your student and stop just cooking your books.

    Pros

    - Great Peers
    - Free Training
    - Holiday observances
    - Cressey & Company has bought UIS
    - Company about to grow Nationally
    - Supportive Peers since almost all are in the same boat.

    Cons

    - Lowest Pay in region - not even touching the lowest ranges, quite embarrassing

    - Low-end benefits
    - Cheap craigslist/ebay equipment and resources
    - Promotions by friends not merits
    - One Exec has all the decisive power, rarely the right choice
    - Critical depts are severely under-staffed with underpaid good people
    - Over-charged & Under-Supported Students
    - Bootcamp to a real career, most can't stay very long due to bad pay.
    - 90% of people in upper management levels are from a specific country that is a continent between china and the middle-east. Also has its name as an Ocean...

    Advice to Management

    Cressey & Company, please replace the toxic policies and personnel that have chosen to take advantage of their subordinates and embarrass the company by refusing quality over quantity(turn-over.)

    Pros

    Parts of the company are doing well and carrying this part on their backs.

    Cons

    The way they treat their employees is not conducive to open and honest communication. There is a big divide between management and front line employees. Management does not know how to show appreciation or respect. This is evidenced by the revolving door; even management keeps turning over. There is no sense of security and now they are changing everything we once knew. And, they are doing it without talking to the rank and file to get their input.

    Advice to Management

    Change is good. But, change for change's sake is destructive. You need to find out what your employees need from you to be successful, what ideas they have for improvements and let them know your vision and what to expect next. Or...the door will keep revolving.

    Pros

    Its a small company but has a lot of potential for growth. probably one of the best nursing schools in California.

    Cons

    Managers are somewhat inexperienced and people often get promoted based on their complaints about other manger instead of getting promoted on merit and hard work.
    High turn over due to managers not being able to retain good employees.

    Advice to Management

    Please consider a fair performance review systema. Reward your career services department, they work tirelessly and are rarely appreciated nor promoted.
