businesses. They are nimble, fast-moving and open to your ideas.
You’ll be in the forefront of business information services. Our companies create
content and deliver products and services through a variety of channels, relying

UCG companies seek out and reward strategic thinkers-innovators who have talent,
industry-experience, and boldness to help increase productivity, hike revenues, and stay ahead
of the competition.

... Them Apples
Our employees consume some 200,000 pieces of fruit annually, everything from red
and green apples to kiwi, oranges and bananas, delivered every day to every
person on our ubiquitous fruit cart.
... Off the Wagon
On certain days the fruit cart transforms itself into an ice cream sundae bar or into
a hot apple-cider wagon, even a pastry stand, dispensing red, white and blue cupcakes
around the fourth of July.
... We Like to Celebrate
We like to celebrate! We celebrate our successes. We
celebrate milestones. And we celebrate the little things too! It may be a baseball outing or a crab feast, or a private showing of a summer blockbuster.
