    Pros

    I cannot say enough about how wonderful this company is and how they treat their employees, It is like working alongside family. They truly care about their employees and put us first.
    Benefits speak for themselves . Health, Dental, Vision are completely covered by the company, great 401k plan, you become a stock holder when you are hired, They have a wellness program that offers fitness classes, mediation, massages and so much more.

    Cons

    I have been working for Ultimate for 10 plus years and can't think of anything that would ever make me leave.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing - Listen to your employees and continue to care about them and they will take care of the business.

    Pros

    Great people, great mindset, great mission

    Cons

    Not a ton of opportunities for career advancement since there is very little turnover. It is nice to see.

    Pros

    The company offers a lot to their employees. It's such a great place to work. We play hard but we work harder. The company's culture is unmatched; they truly care about their employees at the executive top.

    Cons

    Some divisions that are acquired are slow to grasp to the Ultimate culture which has caused some areas to seem as if they are on an island. I believe upper management can do a better job with integrating acquisitions and ensuring that all areas (management specifically) have a true idea of what the company culture looks like and how it should be carried over.

    Outside of that; there are not many Con's and the one mentioned is very small in comparison to the overall organization as a whole and I believe this can be rectified soon because the executive definitely listens to employee concerns

    Advice to Management

    When I worked in the office; I would've like to have seen executive management from Ultimate when the acquisition occurred so that the company culture could have been present in the office faster than it was. It was hard for some of the upper leadership to grasp some of the amazing ideas the direction that was being presented from US so there was push back when there didn't need to be.

    Pros

    Telecommuting is really easy, they encourage PTO (plus we have unlimited PTO), the health benefits are phenomenal, the 401k match is great. I've gone through a few managers but they've all had my interests at heart and have been very transparent with things that are going on, and it makes me feel respected as an employee. When they say People First, and that they prioritize their employees, they are really telling the truth. I'm also in the Product Development side of the organization.

    I've yet to run into any kind of office politics at my level. However, while I don't experience it, I have heard and witnessed a bit of politicking at the senior leadership level (which I feel like is to be expected at any company). I would say the politicking at the individual contributor level is nonexistent, though.

    Cons

    There's typically a re-org once a year (since I've been here). So far it hasn't been very disruptive for my work, but it varies depending on the department. I feel they try their best to make things move smoothly. Fortunately all of my managers believe the People First philosophy, so although I've had a few managers, I've always felt respected.

    The career paths can be a little foggy for the product folks and poorly documented and communicated, at least in my experience.

    Advice to Management

    Please make the career path for product peeps/business analysts more visible! It seems like it's unique in every team.
