    Pros

    nice people, career advancement & training all possible, good benefits and flexi-time

    I worked at Ultra Electronics full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's full of very technically skilled engineers, who are always willing to help out when you need it. Even when they are working flat out to meet their own deadlines. The ground level staff and some heads of departments are exceptionally good to work with and very friendly and helpful which can, at times, contribute to a nice working environment. Ethics and employee welfare is starting to be addressed more now. Good place to work if you are a graduate for a few years. Canteen staff are friendly.

    Cons

    The site location is terrible. Car windows constantly broken into as there is very limited on site parking. Constant source of stress from upper management. Leadership (lack of) from inexperienced management. Technically challenging work with very unrealistic deadlines with unrealistic expectations for making sure to get the job done at any cost to the workers. Lack of communication, leadership and trust of the workers. Was a big blame culture, not by all, but still present by some management.
