      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!

        Advice to Management

        Invest in your good employees by offering better benefits and better pay. Give more opportunities to advance (zero advancement at this company). Have certain managers take anger courses or at least not be bi-polar.

        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.
