Nice place to work

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Huge projects are in the pipeline with the perspective of success in the future key projects in utility and new energy sectors. The management style is reasonable. The office environment is below the standards. The IT is the worst part of the company. I work in a collaborative team with a extensive experience in power industry.

Extreme level of micromanagement - no support or training - no flexibility - very poor salary - management will never acknowledge your hard work or efforts. I would never recommend anyone to work here.

It is ok for engineers but don't expect much support

Very reactive organisation and a bit old fashioned, they basically make problems for people working from home. Some of the jobs are very interesting and a lot of people very knowledgeable

They claim to care about safety but really couldn't care.

Had nothing but problems with this company. They have terrible management, terrible culture and pit everyone against each other and don't give procedures for high risk jobs so they can point the finger if something happens.


Good hours


Terrible management Terrible culture

Fast Paced and Dynamic Working Environment with strong leadership at the top.

UGL is an excellent place to work. Yes the work is demanding and during bids things can get a little hectic, but there is a definite collegiate atmosphere about the place where everyone works together through the tough times to ensure no-one is left behind. Over the past 12 months management changes, have definitely improved morale and the new MD is without doubt one of the best leaders that I have had the pleasure of working for!!


Executive Management Team is top notch Pay is excellent Office location is good Friendly staff


Can be long hours, Parent Company can be difficult to work with, Flexible working is still a "work in progress"

Assignments of uncertainty regards to shutdowns Covid 19 lockout measures


Can be long hours, but it's within satisfaction..and safe tolerances.

Very unorganised disrespectful

Not the top of the list , more worried about the image than the workers. You are treated as just a number. A lot of back stabbing in the management and a very high turnover of HSE staff.


Large project


Senior management egos

Insipid reactionary rabble

Over promised, underdelivered, mostly pond scum in management positions, though the odd person was very professional. Largesse is dolled out to family members, kuldos is an unknown.


I left


I should not have started, rely on your inner vibes.

Given the freedom to use the experience I have gained over many years

We had great managers, our back-up staff were fantastic.I was working on a FIFO project and the travel to and from sight was always well organized and if any problems occurred dealt with efficiently. Paid on time and correctly.The camp we lived in was fantastic and the staff could not be more helpful.


Our managers were fantastic, accommodation and camp staff fantastic.


Casual with 1 hours termination notice. No job security

Good area - free parking

i only work there before as Cad Drafter for combined Services. we were advised that we are to be discharge due to lack of work. However if they get new one we may be recalled but never did because our contacts have been replaced. Overall it was worthed to have worked with them.

Also, i got exposure to a vast area of electrical installation for Transformer, Conducting, Earthing, Network, Panel installation, FAT/SAT, QA, Instrumentation, SCADA etc...

Great work place culture

Supervisors were good and fair. The work was interesting and varied. Management was great...always really helpful. They let their staff know about upcoming work and kept in touch to see if you were interested in those jobs. Everything ran smoothly: from the first phone call to the medical and even to the end of the job. I met some interesting people while working away from home. That, great management and a good pay packet made my time with UGL both enjoyable and rewarding.
