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

    Pros

    Great people to work with. The benefits were good until the industry went south. The pay scale was very good as well. Being acquired opened opportunities.

    Cons

    The downturn in the industry made employment extremely shaky for everyone. The benefits were cut just before the layoffs began.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time speaking with those that work in the various departments and strive to keep younger talent. Things will get better and you'll need people when that happens.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and good people. You have a lot of opportunity to learn because you work on all phases and aspects of projects.

    Cons

    Unorganized, sometimes unreasonable deadlines. Having engineering and design teams as separate entities along with flexible hours leads to a lot of time inefficiencies on projects

    I have been working at UniversalPegasus International full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salary, Benefits, Flex Time Work Hours, People are great here.

    Cons

    More Changes Coming? New Ownership may bring more changes, this company does not need any additional changes. In the past few years, Senior Management has changed quite a few times and with each come change in style of management. Not sure what the new ownership will bring.

    Advice to Management

    Need to communicate more about the REAL changes going on to employees at all levels.

    Pros

    Good health benefits, nice location in Houston. Offers participation in Charity work. Generous compensation

    Cons

    Didn't feel like a positive or collaborative environment. Couldn't really get a feel for company culture. Morale seemed lowed; company felt very segmented. Things could be better as there has been quite a turnaround in senior management staff since I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees. You are nothing without them.

    Pros

    Friendly and comfortable work environment with people that get along well. You can gain field experience.

    Cons

    The mentorship was very weak and they didn't do a good job of providing the necessary tools to succeed in the engineering environment. Not enough control over the client and their overall needs and always in a reactionary mode.

    Advice to Management

    Need some more strong mentors and better organization of tools and more structured use of the tools.

    I worked at UniversalPegasus International full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and 401k, 9/80 work schedule, some really good people work there

    Cons

    Regular lay offs/poor employee morale. In a 6 month span there were 2 major lay offs based on loss of projects or no new business. Constant turnover/attrition of staff. Lots of baggage/attitudes still prevalent from the Ensco/ Pegasus days. Get over it, move on and for those that can't, show them the door.

    Advice to Management

    Get as lean as you need to be in one fail swoop. Then go out and land some decent projects and start to build your company again. There is a good core of some really strong people, but they need some direction and something to get excited about.
