Growing company - great place to work
Scientist (Current Employee) –  Wausau, WIApril 24, 2018
UAS is a growing company that is not without it's growing pains, but it's a collaborative and team oriented environment and a great place to work. An organization with many ideal team players, and looking for more. It's rewarding to work for a company that manufactures products that improve peoples health, and genuinely cares about their employees.
Pros
listens to employees, empowers employees

Great place to work
Production (Current Employee) –  Wausau, WIJanuary 9, 2018
This company is a great place to work. The people are great. There have been some growing pains. But if you come in and do your work and try to be a part of the solution rather then a part of the problem things go okay.. Employees who don't want to change for the better of the company don't stick around to long. That's more on them then it's on management. Management communicates to all employees - there are several meetings per year with the company president, and lunches are also provided several times a year. We get safety celebrations like a catered lunch after 1 year safe work. They also give yearly bonuses for all employees - not just management - if certain goals are met.
Pros
overtime, bonuses, fun people, 4 day workweek in production
Cons
more overtime than wanted at times

Terrible Leadership
General (Former Employee) –  WausauJanuary 5, 2018
Worked here for a couple years. Huge mistake. I have worked for some great managers in my day, but never have I worked for such unprofessional / irresponsible managers as I did at UAS Labs. Because management has no clue how to manage or communicate, they hire people to try to fix their many problems. Yet, as soon as employees speak up, question management, or offer solutions in an effort to make things better, they get fired. Very odd, unethical company to work for. Wish I would have left sooner than I did.
Pros
decent benefits
Cons
very poor management

Maintenance (Former Employee) –  Wausau,WIDecember 4, 2017
I worked here for a year it was good in the beginning and quickly got worse. My manager had was the most unprofessional person I have ever worked with. All the managers treat lower positions as lesser people. If you can stomach the bad attitudes and don't have a family you might want to work here.This is not a stable environment to work in the forecast doesn't look good.
Pros
Clean climate controlled environment
Cons
Management is made up of expired talent with bad attitudes

Fired over 20 people in the span of less than 2 years.
Nothing of significance (Former Employee) –  Wausau, WINovember 6, 2017
I would NOT recommend working here. They are horribly unorganized, work environment is chaotic with a lot of finger pointing. Everyone is walking on eggshells because of the amount of people fired.
There are amazing people working in the day to day jobs; wonderful people, but. . . not worth it.

very stressful trying to please the managers
Procurement Specialist (Former Employee) –  Wausau, WIOctober 20, 2017
Managers constantly micro-managing. Not allowed to do job without constant overseeing and criticizing - when certain managers were off work the environment was 100% better - more relaxed - things ran smoother
Pros
close to home
Cons
micromanagers

Extremely Poor Management
QC (Former Employee) –  Wausau, WIOctober 14, 2017
Poorest ran company I have ever worked for. Continually told things will improve (no improvement in over 2 years) and consistently lied to.A lot of throwing under the bus by management. Things were on the upswing for a split second until reorganization. It is currently in a catastrophic landslide that will not recover.
Non-management/supervisor employees are great to work with and have been put through the wringer. Everyone is scared for their job and looking for a new one.This is not the place to work if your looking for security.

Poorly treated
Encapsulation Operator II (Former Employee) –  Wausau, WIAugust 21, 2017
Typical day: every unorganized they expect the machine to have no errors
I learned right away that this place is very dysfunctional, supervisors have no idea what is going on. They use you where they need the most help and not on your job describtion. The FDA doesn't change their regulations daily or weekly in record keeping.
Management says one thing and does another, the company is losing business.
Workplace culture: Health Improvement
The hardest part of the job is being accused for others mistakes. The most enjoyable part of the job is standing up for yourself. This company suffers leadership and GMP's.
Pros
M-TH 10 hour days
Cons
unorganized and lack of knowledge to what was happening daily, promises always broken

Quality (Former Employee) –  Wausau, WIAugust 16, 2017
This company is horrible at communication.
If they don't like or favorite you, you will never be treated fairly.
Alot of things done the wrong way, then hidden or cover up.
This company is always playing the blame game, so it's always the employee's fault and never the company.
Pros
Fun co-works (production only)
Cons
Mostly communication and bad management team

Highly not recommended
Worker (Former Employee) –  Wausau, WIAugust 16, 2017
No training at all when you start
They throw you wherever they want you to go without telling you (even if that's not your position title)
Upper management make promises they can't keep
Bad communication between upper management and workers
Never have everything to get job done
They tell you there is room to grow but that's a lie
Everyone is getting fired or laid w/o reason or warning
There were bugs in the building and they still kept production running
Management favors too much if they don't like u they will hire someone to replace you without telling you and then fire you with lame excuses
They say you get verbal, written, and final warning before you get fired but you make one mistake you are out the door
This place isn't gonna last long no point of applying
You are not going to go anywhere if you work here
Pros
Great co workers and team work if you don't work in office
Cons

Enjoyable place to work.
Packaging (Former Employee) –  Wausau, WI 54401July 14, 2017
You worked hard for the most part and the time went pretty fast. The majority of the workers are of the Hmong culture and the hardest part was a lot of things were discussed in that language. I feel I could have learned things a little faster if it were explained more in English, otherwise everyone was really very nice to work with. Every one worked really hard and they are all a good group of people. Also UAS Labs went above and beyond as far as the extras went. Very generous. I really enjoyed working there. Was disappointed to get laid off.
Pros
A lot of fringe benefits and extras
Cons
Low job security.

Machine Operator/Line Lead (Current Employee) –  Wausau, WIJuly 1, 2017
Was a great place to work for in the beginning however in the end there was no accurate communication between management and the employees. Productions slowed and we were told that we did not need to worry about loosing our jobs, then a week later they started layoffs.

No Good
Encapsulation Operator (Former Employee) –  Wausau, WIJune 21, 2017
Very inadequate pay scale. Good work-life balance, but it ends there. Job was very stressful, powder everywhere, have to wear a respirator or you'll feel like you're choking. Horrible morale, back-stabbing, etc. Stay away, or you'll regret it. The office is the only thing that matters, and maintaining the highest profit-margins possible while stepping on the backs of the employees. They brag about doubling sales every year then tell employees there is a wage freeze.
Pros
Work-life balance
Cons
Everything else

Think twice about working there.
Technical Support (Former Employee) –  Wausau, WIMay 10, 2017
It was a fun place to work when it was a small company, because everybody worked together as a team and we all wanted to see the company succeed. It grew too fast, and it became chaotic.

Most of the management team are incompetence.
No one had a calm heads there. When something happens, upper management do knee jerk reactions and make knee jerk decisions, instead of thinking things though. Most problems were never as big as they were first seem. We were taught if you make a mistake, you need to owe up to the mistake. If upper management makes a mistake, they blame others. New managers will come in happy, and positive, and within a few months they turn negative and on edge.

There really is no job security, because they will let you go without warning. They will not warn you, or have meetings with you if they feel you not working up to par.

You are there one day, and out the door next.
Pros
Decent benefits for a small company
Cons
Incompetence Management Team
