SANTA ANA, Calif., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Universal Services of America, one of the largest providers of security services to the commercial real estate market in Arizona, California, Colorado, Texas and Washington, placed within Orange County Business Journal's top ten places to work list in the large company division. The award, divided into three categories based on the number of employees, honors outstanding employers whose staff love to come to work everyday. The Best Places to Work of 2010 award recognizes leading workplaces in Orange County and is given based on surveys from the company's employees. Companies with excellent communication and respect for their employees topped the list, and were honored by the Orange County Business Journal for their ability to help minimize the impact of a rough economy.



"Working for Universal is like being a part of a big family," said Laurie Mose, Payroll Supervisor and employee for 21 years at Universal Services of America. "I've seen a lot of changes over the years, all of them for the better. I wouldn't want to work anywhere else."

Employees were asked to rate their companies based on categories such as fairness, flexibility, benefits and values. Universal knows employees are the cornerstone to their continued success and views them as their most valuable assets. Universal's benefits, training programs, contests and profit-sharing plans are all part of the packages their employees receive. The Orange County Business Journal's Best Places to Work of 2010 award is an honor that Universal is proud to accept.

"We are proud to receive the accolades again this year. We try hard to establish our culture and make the company the best it can be," said Brian Cescolini, President/CEO of Universal Services of America. "Without our employees, who buy into our culture and commit day in and day out, we couldn't be successful."

"I am extremely proud of all of our employees and that they continue to passionately express their satisfaction with working at our company," said Steve Jones, Executive VP/COO of Universal Services of America. "Unlike other organizations that manufacture and sell some type of product, our product is people, so it is great to know that our people feel valued."
