    I have been working at Uponor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I am amazed by how most everyone at Uponor is kind and funny in addition to being smart and innovative. It's difficult to find that sort of combination anywhere. There seems a genuine desire from everyone to do the best work and what's best for the customer.

    Cons

    While the managers are quick to promote work/life balance, the employees seem to have a hard time staying away (check email on PTO, etc.).

    Pros

    Great benefits and vacation to start

    Middle management has no clue what is going on and needs to be replaced with competent individuals.

    Pros

    The company truly believes the people are one of the best assets here and puts in the effort to make them feel appreciated, valued, and like their work. It's a great team environment with lots of open collaboration. People here know their work matters and it helps to keep morale up as well as keep employees invested in their work.
    Benefits are some of the best you'll find. They're a huge incentive to stay with the company long term! Very generous PTO plan, VTO (Volunteer Time Off), wonderful medical plan, rewards & recognition program for all employees, great 401k plan w/ 4% matching & 100% vested from day 1, the list goes on and on.

    Cons

    If you empty the coffee pot, please refill it. :)
    But seriously, there's really nothing bad to say about working at Uponor.

    Advice to Management

    Some growing pains from growing at such a fast rate, but most of the management is aware of this and taking care to minimize these pains.

    Pros

    The caring culture and close relationships that form, throughout the organization, really highlight the importance of people to this organization. The benefits are outstanding. The company is committed to excellence and continuously improving in all areas.

    Cons

    Seriously, if the biggest complaint is that people sometimes leave the coffee pot empty, things are really good here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in good people.

    Pros

    Fair pay and above average benefits. They make you feel appreciated, and the company has been in continual growth mode for many years (job security). They are continually expanding and hiring - many internal openings posted. There are many long term employees - very low turn over.

    Cons

    The growth and expansion has lead to many new job positions opening up. However it seems that they are creating job openings faster then they can fill them. Often we are understaffed, and the continually expansion and growth often feels like controlled chaos.

    Advice to Management

    Ever since I have been here, it has been continual growth and expansion. Not sure what the special sauce is. But Management must be doing something right, keep it up.

    I have been working at Uponor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The CULTURE is something unparalleled to what I have seen at other organizations. After starting and being new everyone was so welcoming and patient with my learning process.
    MANAGEMENT is great, they are transparent and the President knows your name. Great APPROACHABLE/FRIENDLY style.
    BENEFITS lead the industry by 30%, you will have a hard time finding a benefits package that meets the needs for you and your family. The offer FREE medical visits and provide excellent PATERNITY and MATERNITY leave! Plus, you get a 401K match at 4% and are vested on day one of enrollment!
    Coming to this company, that I knew was small but growing I am astonished by the learning OPPORTUNITIES that you see in all sides of the business. You really can grow in all areas.

    Cons

    None that I can think of :)

    I have been working at Uponor full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great org structure. Very flexible bosses. People here are really nice. The yearly holiday parties are great.

    Cons

    The yearly goals can be a bit goofy sometimes, pretty much the whole bonus and goals and merit increases have a really dense, confusing system of percentages, and levels, and so on. However, the end result has always ranged from fair to generous.

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate yearly goals among work groups more often so it's coherent and realize when you're getting caught up on the KPI of the year too much.
