Lab Tech 1 (Former Employee) – Melville, NY – 15 October 2016
UL is primarily an engineering company. They certify electrical products. Engineers will deconstruct a product and set up a testing program. Each product is a project and employees will be appraised as to how many projects are completed. The job ends up to be one of production with fierce competition between employees. There are many departments and each has its own management. These managers seem to have their own rules. Some definitely play favorites, some are fair.

Customer Service (Current Employee) – Camas, WA – 4 July 2016
The CEO is only worried about his pocket. He is not for his employees. He does not visit the offices or even try to get to know the people that keep everything running smoothly.
Recently they have fired people just because they want to cut back on budget. Their bonus program is a joke. Managers only approve those who kiss their butt. You can not survive on the starting pay. Positions here starting at $16 an hour, else where start at $20.00 it's a true dead end job with no room for growth. If you want to feel unappreciated work here. Managers are not personal and do not stick up for their departments/teams.
Communication sucks with management and managers show appreciation by throwing Pizza parties like people are in grade school. If this CEO cared he would reevaluate how he treats his employees and how he rewards them. The attendance policy is a joke as well. Management is so unprofessional they do not know how to approve vacation. Managers Tisha and Sonya walk around kissing the butt of manager Julie who never speaks to staff. These managers are not fit for these positions. If they cared they would stand up and demand higher pay for their departments but they do not care about anyone but themselves. Employees pull together to help each other because some have faced losing their homes due to crappie pay. Some can not afford to feed their families because the pay is so crappie. By far the worst company to work for!

Financial Services Supervisor (Former Employee) – İstanbul, T34 – 27 January 2016
My duties were more managerial rather than operational so I was making my day planning according to my meetings and conference calls. I always made time to coordinate and made plans with my team. I learned to manage people and be an effective team member at the same time. The hardest and the most enjoyable part of the job, at the same time, was working with a lot of people from all around the world. Working with different cultures made me more understanding and adjustable.
Engineers administrative assistant (Former Employee) – Northbrook, IL – 17 December 2015
A typical day depends on what you make it, there's plenty of work to do and everyone is there to help. Management was wonderful and so was the co-workers, the hardest part of the job is staying focus, with so much interesting activities going on, you sometimes forget you were at work
