    I worked at UDP full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people are great! They were all kind and, with a little time, I grew to care about them and now I miss them. I was able to help start a board game night, which I feel brought people a bit closer. Free company lunches made me feel like I was part of something a bit bigger. Health insurance premiums are fully paid. HSAs get monthly deposit (to make it equal to the other plan). Copays are $25/55 for the the standard...

    Cons

    You might get stuck on a project for a long time. I was converting Cobol to C# my whole time there and I wouldn't do it again. I rarely got to work on more interesting things and, at the time, I found those things difficult to understand. There isn't any training, because anyone who would be able to review your code or help you is typically too busy. People are willing to help, but getting that help can be difficult...

    Advice to Management

    Improve benefits where you can, research entry level software development pay rates, create a training and advancement plan to better utilize employees, and implement, at minimum, cost-of-living pay bumps. Also, thanks for the opportunity!

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at UDP full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I loved having my own office and covered parking. Good people work there and most people have been there a long time. No cost medical insurance.

    Cons

    1. The main issue about working here and maybe it is common in small companies, but there really is no career advancement opportunities. You could work the same job for 20 years and have no chance to move up. 2. 401k matching is very low. 3. Pay raises are hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    I have been working at UDP

    Pros

    Co workers are great and very helpful. Working conditions are nice and they have free covered parking for all employees. Work can be complex. Most areas have a highly competent knowledge expert.

    Cons

    Recent cut in benefits. Staffing is inadequate for proper coverage. Development/Improvement to systems is lacking. Most employees get caught in application "silos" with little or no chance to cross train. Most new development is done by contractors.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and smell the coffee! The advantages you have had in the past are rapidly disappearing. Biuild and cross train your staff and give them the training to keep current.
