    I worked at Univeris full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable employees and benefits are attractive.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management needs "management" training.

    I worked at Univeris full-time

    Pros

    Highly intelligent staff, a lot of bright people work there. A good place to learn a lot about the industry.

    Cons

    Upper management are always stepping over each others toes. No one wants to own issues. Things stay in the backlog for sometimes years. People don't stay for too long.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up your act, let the lower managers do their job. Move the focus onto fixing current workflow issues instead of trying to expect the latest and greatest thing to be implemented with zero scope on the realities of time frames.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Flat corporate structure with few barriers to upper managers.

    Laid back work environment with flexible hours.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover, with little knowledge retention and little-to-no job training.

    Company rarely recognizes employees when they go the extra mile... Also too "frugal" to throw a summer party.

    NO QA department! 'Automated testing' program is a complete let down, and is more about saving the company money IMO and less about building a qualify product.

    Each release is plagued with defects, which puts enormous pressure on staff to balance corrective maintenance work with new projects. Too often are projects incomplete when they go out the door and new features rarely work as expected.

    EWMS software is not intuitive and very overwhelming... Good luck if you're a new user.

    Advice to Management

    Think long term. Focus less on maximizing your bottom line today and put more emphasis on building a quality product that satisfies customers tomorrow.

    I worked at Univeris full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people, fast paced environment, ideas are welcome when they relate to the technology side of things. Improved benefits and certain organizational improvements have been put in place to increase employee engagement and retention.

    Cons

    Take employees experience knowledge and hard work for granted. Senior management has an attitude that everyone is replaceable and if someone doesn't like something, they are welcome to go because they can hire someone else. High turn over (more than usual in a tech firm). Huge issues within organizational and departmental structures, affecting the effectiveness of senior management.
