    I worked at Universal Electronics (CA) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There was potential to grow with the company. Managers was the most helpful to me. Talked to customers on the phone daily.

    Cons

    The shift was horrible, and it was going to take a long time to get moved off of it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Universal Electronics (CA) full-time

    Pros

    Decent salary; will only get a bonus for non-managers if the company is doing well.
    The hours are actually not bad in the accounting department; some overtime during quarter end and year end but it's expected.
    People are friendly.
    Okay perks, some internal events and nice annual Christmas party.
    The CEO holds a quarterly all-hands meeting.

    Cons

    Because it's not a big company, growth opportunities are limited.
    Vacation sucks; 10 days to start, 15 days after 5th year, and 20 days after 10th year.
    Senior management = old boys' club.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Overall the company treats its employees well, with perks, nice accomadations and descent pay.

    Cons

    It really depends on who your manager is. If you happen to have a bad one than you will be treated poorly in your dept.

    Advice to Management

    Let your subordinates know that they are appreciated by connecting with them. Make sure supervisors/managers are approachable. Train supervisors better, because if you have a supervisor that treats you respectfully then you will have a better team.
