Not a good work, life balance.
Company pushed to have employees work for free and long hours.
They are very rigid on employees working at site and 5 days a week even though some of the employees homes are 2-3 hours away and work for some doesn't need to be physically everyday in office. The traffic is very bad commuting to work. Offices are very cramped. They would expect employees to work late with no notice if needed but if employee wanted to flex-time to take off Friday or Monday for long weekend, they didn't allow it. The employee had to use their precious few, vacation days. Benefits are not good.
Support from management
No feedback or support from management.
Asked for feedback a few times, never received it.
Had a death of a very close loved-one in family and received no support or consideration regarding that.
I was left to myself to try to learn new programs with very little help, not even a manual.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Younger employees praised easily. Old ones were pushed hard and not many praised. 1 older employee brought a lot of work to the company and maintained bringing work from those companies. He was passed over for employee of the month many times by younger ones that didn't even do nearly as much for the company as this engineer did.
Career development is good for the young employees but not so much for older. This is typical in most work places.
Office / Work Environment
Very cramped. UEC lost an office space and instead of finding new office space, crammed us in very tiny office space together.
No flex-time or ability to work from home some days.
They work hard to develop quality, hybrid power and also medical equipment. They try hard to find cost effective solutions for the military.
Very high turnover
Really enjoyed the work. It was challenging and interesting. It was 1 of the main reasons I took this job even knowing there was a high turnover.
What I like about the company
1. Company uses good software tools and keeps up on the version of them.
2. The work is very interesting
3. Because it's a small company, it is more streamlined than large companies.
What I dislike about the company
Poor work-life balance. Company needs to realize it goes both ways. If they want their employees to work late and go the extra mile for company schedule, UEC needs to value and treat well their employees. This is why this company has such a VERY large turnover of employees. It doesn't treat majority of its employees/contractors well.
