Universal Technical Institute Employee

"Patterson UTI is an energy company operating in 2020. They're pretty standard as far as low-tier oil nat/gas companies go. Ancient equipment, and even older management styles, this company is not one I'd recommend working for, if it wasn't for the excellent pay."

"worked for Patterson UTI for 3 yrs. with multiple changes in management. Ultimately the last changes resulted in extreme "micro-management", which is a direct conflict with what they claim to be their core values"

"Good company people are great. The only bad thing is, it to the corporate office you are just a number. They will help you when you need it but it is in personal."

"Company has gone downhill in recent years due to leadership changes. Direction is lacking and there is way too much conflict internally. I went from a great place to work to a depressing one."

"On the positive side (and that is the only positive side), this company is very easy to get in. Pay is alright, they have promised a lot of interesting work and I fell for that. It turned out to be one of the worst jobs I've had. Work mostly consists of solving various administrative roadblocks: acquiring tools, cross-team communication, corporate processes, etc. Even figuring out how much time off you have left (unless you keep track of all the days you have used yourself) is a problem.Technologically, company's mindset is stuck in mid-nineties, there is little to no respect to new technologies and tools, 'permission over forgiveness' attitude dominates in all aspects. Software that is currently developed does not honor parallelism and not built with scalability in mind. Large chunk of the system is built using outright wrong tools (TIBCO). The problem is made worse by abundance of people with little technical backgrounds at all levels of UTi's engineering ladder.Very poor communication and miserable working environment: administrative staff and managers are rude and unprofessional, constant verbal fights between employees. Management is pushing for better performance while technology misuse and lack of tools make even the most basic tasks hard. Permanent feeling of being set up to fail."

"UTI's industry relationships and manufacturer programs have allowed me to build a nationwide network of companies and dealerships looking to hire our graduates. I enjoyed working face to face meeting with owners, general managers and service managers during OEM dealer trade shows to articulate the value of hiring MMI graduates. The company's culture is one that cares about employee's work life balance."
