    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

    The team is great and I am treated as part of it even though I am new. Many people go above and beyond to make sure you get settled in as a new employee. The company's HR Dept is very organized. Too new to add anything else at this time.

    Cons

    A few people should learn manners - swearing within earshot of others is not cool. Also, small items came up missing in my cubicle recently. I really do mean 'a few'. Most people are very professional.

    Pros

    UPI is a great company that allows you to achieve and grow as much as you wish. Do your job the best you can and you will reap the benefits. You won't always agree with every company move or decision, but that's true no matter who you work for and that includes "youself". UPI allows you the freedom to grow and prosper if you're talented enough and smart enough to grab hold before things pass you by.

    Cons

    UPI has always been a company of change and growth and like most companies, it sooner or later makes some bone-head decisions. How it recovers and overcomes those decisions is the real measure of the company future. As UPI has grown it takes longer to overcome some missteps. UPI can be a little too slow to show appreciation and a little too quick to throw out the baby with the bathwater.

    Advice to Management

    Despite the cons; I think management is really trying. I do agree with some of the naysayers that in the past poor (or lack of) management has been a real problem. That problem is not unique to UPI, but then this is not a critique of other companies. My advice to UPI management is that they continue to make sure they and their decisions are not the problems. To continue to pave that gravel road to success and to always keep an eye on the success of the team. And never, ever forget that the team is really just a bunch of individuals working towards a common goal.

  7. UPI is a company on the rise. They take care of their employees and they have a good vision of the future.

    Pros

    The environment is upbeat. My colleagues are second to none and always willing to assist in anyway. My compensation is more than fair. I am able to increase my knowledge and experience. Our managers are positive and strive to provide a great place to work; often asking for feedback. The corporate office is very supportive and communicates in order to keep us abreast of company business and projects. This is a good place for me.

    Cons

    As with “any” engineering or service group the work often comes down at the clients discretion which sometimes is the last minute.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the hard work.

    Pros

    Overall a positive work life balance. Some stressful times, but that keeps you charged. Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Can sometimes be so process oriented it can make the company appear inflexible and unresponsive. The past few years have been full of changes, and that may be unsettling. Utilization scrutinization can be very demanding, but it is understandable.

    Advice to Management

    Involve more employees in strategic planning and get their feedback and ownership of the overall plan.

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity for growth. Salaries competitive

    Cons

    Medical benefits are on the high side.

    Advice to Management

    Costs of medical benefits are way too high compared to other employers.

    Pros

    Company provides great benefits and good work culture. Open door policy applies to everyone in company and is a big plus. After acquisition by HII, company is more aggressive in market for various different and value added projects.

    Cons

    need better structure within departments.
