    I have been working at Ubiqus full-time

    Pros

    Very friendly co-workers, ambitious employees definitely have room to make changes in their department and be earmarked for promoting. There's room to make the job as low-key or as dynamic as you want it to be. Management puts out a lot of initiatives to improve corporate culture and day to day enjoyment. Free breakfast on Mondays, free lunch on Fridays.

    Cons

    The departments are sometimes set at odds with each other, and management doesn't always do a quick job of handling underperformers.

    Pros

    The first thing you will notice about Ubiqus is the tremendous diversity and high level of collegiality, people enjoy working together. Every team leader has extensive experience and is a top authority in his/her field, you will learn a lot from the best. Ubiqus actively promotes from within, aggressively and regularly. If you look for advancement you will find it! A great place to work and plenty of opportunities to shine. - Excellent PTO (18-24 days) - Casual but professional atmosphere - Serious about producing a great work product - Exciting technology initiatives - Telecommuting - Flexible work hours = good work/life balance - New CEO cares about the success of his people and the business - Quarterly town hall meetings - 4 offices: NY, NJ, LA, Irvine - 4% 401K match, immediate vesting - Three levels of healthcare coverage, + dental, vision, etc.

    Cons

    - More structured training programs needed - CRM/ERP system takes a long time to learn and could be easier to use - Longer wait period (1 year) for 401K - Need more/better communication between international offices - Open floor plan can be distracting at times

    Thank you for the review of Ubiqus; we are happy that you are having such a positive experience. We are only as good as the sum of our parts and value the relationship with the transcriptionists working with us.

    I worked at Ubiqus full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have been working in Ubiqus, in the Waterford office for 3 years. It was supposed to be a short period for an experience abroad but it turned to be much longer. The team is the thing I miss most, very nice and smart people that on the occurrence work together to tackle new challenging projects. There is a "Social Club" as well, so that you can do nice activities after work (this is chosen by the employees with polls). I have to say I am very happy with the time spent there and with all the things I learned. I moved to Dublin for personal reasons otherwise I wouldn't have changed company. Being in a new company now I can see how all the things I learned in Ubiqus puts me in a position of advantage with my colleagues.

    Cons

    Industry is going a bit too much towards the MT / post-editing

    Ubiqus Response

    Director

    Thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback on the company as it is an important way for us to learn about our employee’s (past and current) experiences and make any necessary adjustments. We are glad that you feel it is a good place to start a career in sales but I’m sorry to hear that you felt like you were treated like a child in relation to any breaks or the finish time. Everyone has flexibility with when they take their lunch break and the idea that people take it earlier or later does in fact suit the team because it means that people are here in the office to deal with anything urgent, if necessary. As for the 6pm finish time, we make sure that our working hours are communicated to each employee before they commence work at Ubiqus, so we are sorry if this was not expected when you joined. We are a service business and therefore we have taken the commercial choice to provide opening hours that cover our client’s opening times in order to provide the best coverage possible for their needs. Every employee here has an important role to play and we encourage our team members to come with ideas and to challenge decisions that are made. We hope that this sort of mentality will create mutual respect between all employees within the company.
