    I worked at Ubiqus part-time

    Pros

    This is a very flexible company that will not punish you if you call out, for example. If you are looking for a non commitment position or for some extra money and don't need this job to pay your major bills, it's not bad actually. The hearings can be very boring but people are usually nice and there are many breaks, sometimes longer breaks where you can even go for a walk as long as you are responsible enough to return...

    Cons

    There is no room to grow. They prefer to hire people from outside than invest in people who are already there, people they already know, which is strange. They simply assume that you are not fit for the position you apply for and that you don't meet certain requirements even though they can easily train you for any position there, really. Be mindful when accepting any position with Ubiqus because you will not grow and...

    I have been working at Ubiqus full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Would give 0 stars if I could. I work in the London office There's actually none to list, other than a FEW members of the company are easy going

    Cons

    Managing Director is ignorant, and stuck in his old ways and mentality, which results in a failing business, and does not listen to staff. The days are long 9-6 (40hr) which is so old fashioned, and if you are unwell, you have to use your annual leave to cover sick pay. If you do work from home, the 5 days you get a year, you must use your own equipment and install their cluggy system on your PC. Not sure how data...

    Advice to Management

    I have been here for 2 years and hate the fact that the company so rigid, it needs a strong update and to in line with current environments. We should not be here working in a freezing office for 3 days of no heating, its a basic human rights to be warm at work!

I’m disappointed to hear that you believe that you are part of a failing business as this is not the impression we have tried to give off, particularly as we have grown considerably ...

      I worked at Ubiqus

      Pros

      Flexible hours, interesting work and the opportunity to meet many interesting people.

      Cons

      Not enough hours, lack of communication from superiors, little to no training. Paid by the day which is good for shorter meetings, but some can take 9 hours, most of which will be spent in the waiting room between sessions. In these situations, you are seriously underpaid. No feedback on your work.

      Advice to Management

      More training, shadowing experienced employees would be helpful. Improved day rate, or variable day rate. Feedback on performance would be most helpful.

      1. SALARY SUCKS!!!!!! 2. The CEO clearly doesn't care about the employees or know what she's doing. She makes horrible decisions for the company and the employees are blamed when things don't work the way she wants or thought it would. 3. Extreme micro managing 4. Many of the supervisors don't know how to manage their team or how to interact with people which causes tension between employees and management 5. Hostile/...
