  • Nothing I can think of at this moment.

What I like about the company

The culture. The team spirit and workmanship. The benefits and the office environment.

What I dislike about the company

The only negative (which isn't even a major negative), is the lack of healthier food options when celebrations occur.

Thank you so much for leaving this review!



Company Culture

The work environment is very good and I feel comfortable in the company.

Support from management

In general, all departments are congratulated by management at the end of each month or when the objectives are reached.

Teamwork

It strongly encourages companionship and teamwork through seminars, workshops and courses.

Freedom to work independently

The company gives each worker enough space to develop a good job.

Internal Communication

Meetings are often held to report problems or progress of the company's processes.

Gender Equality

Yes, in the company we all have the same rights and benefits.

Attitude towards older colleagues

All employees are treated in a friendly manner regardless of their age, sex or religion.

Career Development

The company trains its employees through courses.

Overall compensation for your work

I have a good job and I am covered by different insurance offered by my employer.

Office / Work Environment

All offices have good facilities to work comfortably.

Environmental Friendliness

There are always talks on the benefits of collecting garbage and recycling, is one of the values ​​of the company.

Work-Life Balance

The schedules are flexible and allow to have a good daily routine.

Company Image

For me it is a privilege to work in this company for everything that has helped me and allowed me to grow professionally.

Job Security

I feel comfortable with the work I do and the benefits I offer the company

Handicapped Accessibility

It offers benefits in terms of work and occupation but does not have the necessary spaces for these people to feel comfortable.

Workplace Safety

Often seminars and fire drills and first aid are held to be prepared.

Challenging Work

It is a bit challenging because I have to keep the information of the company updated and protected through technological services.

Inclusive / Diverse

This is something very important that is given in each department, listening to different opinions allows to do a good job.

Suggestions for improvement

  • What would improve my company would be to encourage more employees to take courses in preparation for their careers or professional degrees, grant longer break times to avoid stress or fatigue at work and recreational activities more often on the part of management and employees to build trust.

What I like about the company

My company has allowed me to grow personally since I work with them, they have allowed me to achieve financial stability thanks to all the benefits they give to their employees in matters of insurance, vacation payments, training, among others. The work environment is excellent and that allows a good job to be guaranteed, its facilities are modern and teamwork is essential. Another of its benefits is that it encourages recycling, social equality and equal treatment for all.

What I dislike about the company

I would like programs or improvements to facilities for people with disabilities to be made so that they feel more comfortable and comfortable in their workplace.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think more equity would lead to a stronger workplace culture. The 'work hard, play hard' mentality may work for some employees, but it's not that healthy. If we had less emphasis on rewarding 'high performers' and more emphasis on simply doing your job as well as possible (rather than as long as possible), I think that would be a great leap forward.

What I like about the company

It's a great place to work, and I really trust my manager to look out for me.

What I dislike about the company

The pay could be more equitable. They take great care of their employees, and managers and executives talk a great deal about how individual contributors are the ones who drive the company and create value. However, I'm only paid for about half of the value I create (though I want to note that this is a much higher percentage than most companies allow their workers to take home). Beyond higher pay, I think greater equity, behind simple bonuses, would be a great move forward for an already pretty great company.

  • I would reduce workloads so that employees could work a 40 hour week. Lower executive salaries would subsidize higher headcount so that workload is better distributed.

What I like about the company

I love working with the people on my team, and I feel like I am valued for the work I do.

What I dislike about the company

Compensation, especially in stock, could be more equitable. I understand the rationale for higher executive salaries, but the fact remains that the company only runs because of every single employee there. While the hierarchy of the company is fairly fl

  • I think overall it's a great place to work, but work life balance in practice would make it even better. There's a lot of discussion, but the practicality of our jobs makes it very difficult to take advantage of the generous policies.

What I like about the company

I love being able to work from home, and I work on a team of great people. My manager is never looking over my shoulder but always there when I need him.

What I dislike about the company

There's very much a work hard play hard, hard drinking culture. While we are encouraged to take time off, the workload and expectations sometimes make work life balance difficult. There's a lot of room and support for professional growth, both laterally and upwards, but few roles have anywhere to go up that's not a management position. While the total compensation is very reasonable, salaries are a bit on the low side, and there is significant inequality in salaries between high level and low level employees (though granted, much less inequality than most companies). An example is the 401k matching, which has a much higher cap than most companies (50% of EE contributions, no limit), practically speaking it's less if the average employee who can't contribute much. For comparison, a theoretically worse match of 100% for first 3% and nothing after is only actually worse if most employees can contribute >6% of their salary. A flat match percentage benefits higher paid employees even more, when percentages already do that in terms of real dollars.

  • I am happy with the company, culture, environment, and people. I wouldn't change anything.

What I like about the company

I am a virtual Employee (work from home) which allows me flexibility. We have 100% employer paid health-dental, so I don't have to worry about paying for benefits for me and my family. We have an unheard of 45% UNCAPPED match on 401k, so if I put in $19,000 the company will match for $8,550. We are alotted UltiService Days, which allows us to volunteer on a paid work day. I am scheduled to volunteer with a group of my virtual Ultipeeps on Tuesday next week and I'm excited because the company organized the event so we can connect with others in our area.

What I dislike about the company

We are going through growing pains, which is normal when you hire a lot of people very quickly. Career growth opportunities are at a record high, but it created competition among the team members. It's difficult for the managers to decide how many people to hire with the explosive workload, which impacts the team when we feel we need more people to manage workload but we may not feel like we hired "enough".
