While at Universal Pegasus International, I also had the opportunity to work on the Valley Crossing Pipeline prelim project. I performed various activities including: use of Trimble GPS products, staking for rights-of-way and centerline, collecting field data for encroachments such as roads, highways, overhead power and locating underground utilities. I also located property corners for boundary survey as well as staking for as built construction.
Vice President Project Services - As VP at UPI (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – December 7, 2016
My experience at UPI as part of the Senior Management Team was positive. A key aspect was the team-oriented work environment. I was entrusted with quite a bit of management responsibility, and was allowed to operate autonomously in support of overall company objectives,
This is a really good company to learn stuff. They give you different tasks to improve yourself. The working culture is also pretty good. Managers buy donuts every week as breakfast for us, and they also have bigger events once a while.
Have chance to learn a lot of stuff. Good working culture.
Either you are really busy, or you don't have anything to do at all. Once you start charging the overhead, you are about to be fired.

Engineer 2 (Former Employee) – 102 Asma Blvd., Suite 400, Lafayette, LA 70508 – January 23, 2015
I learned a great deal about the oil and gas industry and the programs involved in control automation. I give credit for that to the wonderful people I worked with. Being client driven work, there was always new and ever changing challenges to produce exemplary work for our customers. The management in the Lafayette office were always willing to listen and help me. The hardest part of the job were the impromptu times when going offshore were required. With my family situation, the people there made it a great deal easier to do that work. The most enjoyable part of the job was watching my hard work on a project pay off and a customer was pleased.
Relaxed atmosphere, wonderful people
down time in between billable projects, squeeze from upper management to be more profitable
Chief Substation Inspector (Current Employee) – Denver, CO – October 10, 2012
I am mostly out in the field to work with contractors constructing substations. Employees have excellent work ethics. Management team provides necessary communication tools for those working in the field like me. My co-workers are very helping to help you solving critical work related issues. The hardest part of my job is that I am out in the field all the time. The most enjoyable part of my job is the support I get from my manager.

-different events happening per day, some excellent, some bad -learned a lot about the working industry and its benefits -management was fair -friendly employees -when I'm told multiple tasks, it is confusing and it upsets one person or more, keeping track of projects organized from others, and a task that is not part of my title -doing CAD work relevant to project(s), printing/scanning sheets

too many overhead hours, lack of clients/project, not useful in many ways, certain clients not teamplayer
