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

    Pros

    Small office, down to Earth people.

    Cons

    Everyone there is on lockdown. New management tracks your every move! Better be apart of the 'in crowd' or you will get the boot! When they fire you, they send out a company-wide email saying that YOU decided to seek other opportunities!

    Advice to Management

    Treat your personnel better. Show more appreciation...even if it's just to say "good job".

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

    Pros

    The most pleasant thing about working for UTEC would be the opportunity to travel across the globe but you don't get to see or do much of anything while there.

    Cons

    Overloaded with demands to complete tasks that are unrealistic in a small timeframe. Lack of support and assistance other than a lot of finger pointing and call you out on mistakes you've made. We're only human, that's how we learn and grow professionally.

    Advice to Management

    Stop and take the time to ask how things are going and what can you do to help. I would stay away from this company since their company has been acquired recently and more unpleasant things will start to trickle down from the parent company. Made the mistake of leaving a good job but a bit longer drive to this company. Lesson learned, thanks UTEC but no thanks!

    Pros

    UTEC is a company which follows latest technology in the survey industry.

    Cons

    Cost control can be improvised to a certain extent.

    Advice to Management

    To carefully assess performance of an employee and not to take on board any observations from third party sources. Try and provide as much support to the project management / operations staff so that they do not succumb to pressures of work.
