After 6+ years of working here and accomplishing high levels of performance along with Outstanding Awards and a 4.0 Master's degree in Business Management I had consistently applied for promotion but when I got to the final interview I would be told that the company was under a hiring/ advancement freeze. I was continually frustrated by a management system that only promoted those with a Morman Church connection. Then the layoffs came and those of us who continually performed and were making above $50K a year were laues off and replaced with uneducated, untrained applicants who would take the job for $ 35K/ year. Once Sperling's son took over the company went to help in a handbasket. When UOP was sold 2 years ago those who were left live each day not knowing if they will continue to have a job every day they come to work. It is an unstable work environment where the management has lost control and has NO VISION for the future.

I just happened to find a permanent job that paid enough to compensate for what I would lose in leaving UoP. Nothing they can do about that.
