    I have been working at UGL full-time

    Pros

    They had a contract which provided a good lifestyle roster

    Cons

    As soon Corona kicked in the already not so great organised situation became worse. Basically, within minutes several hundred employees were told they would be stood down (without pay), redundancy followed soon. Hard to say if that was a necessary action or if it reflects the way UGL thinks of their employees. No response (positive or negative) to internal applications within this time and the CIMIC group also tells something about ethics and professionalism.
