This company found me based on my resume on here. I couldn't be happier. I worked my way up from a warehouse position to where I am now. Is selling electrical equipment a dream job? No, but I highly doubt anyone sets out in life to sell this stuff. What makes this place tick is the culture.
If you apply yourself here, you can make things happen. If you make yourself an obvious candidate, they'll work on training you to make that happen. I have been sent away to multiple vendor training classes to further my career. It has been pleasant.
The work/life balance here is great. They truly understand you have a life outside of work and that family comes first. I have a manager that cares about me and his staff. They know things can happen and work your schedule to accommodate.
On top of all of this, the company is an ESOP (employee-owned). You get 401K matching and shares from the ESOP. Can't ask for more!
I feel management has an open door policy here and will listen to you. On top of that, the amount of information shared from C-level is more than anything I've experienced at other jobs.
No place is without its faults, but UE seems to learn from those faults and the good far outweighs and negative.
Only con I can see, is if you're not willing to move, some times advancement in certain locations can take a good deal of time as it's a company with A LOT of people staying 20+ years. I do think the hiring process can be streamlined a bit more and this seems to be getting addressed.
Advancement, work life balance, training, flexible
Advancement can take time, hiring process
