    I worked at Universal Instruments full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I have rated this company 4 stars, for the amazing experience I had, working for less than a year. People are really helpful and cooperative to your questions and doubts.As a recent grad, I had a great learning curve working here.

    Cons

    The company is in such a good industry and can make a lot of profit if there are changes in the management. *No proper hierarchy in the roles. *Cannot retain good employees. * Lot of Book keeping. If you just want to learn, this is really a great platform to excel technically and professionally and then move on.

    Advice to Management

    The company has a great potential to grow largely, considering the industry it is in, only if the management cares about it.
