I worked at United BioSource full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
I worked in the Operations side of the house (HR, Finance, IT, Facilities) for many years and survived multiple acquisitions. There are a number of dedicated, smart and talented people there who care about the quality of their performance. These are the people that helped me keep my sanity.Cons
Unfortunately, the cons FAR out-weigh the pros. Many of the Sr leadership have left the company, some due to the chaos and nonsense being owned by a Fortune 25 corporation has introduced. Other key personnel have left because Sr leadership have left. The environment is draining, constantly chaotic and unpleasant because most people are unhappy working there. Many of the remaining Sr leadership within UBC, I feel, are shortsighted and do not demonstrate appreciation for the people that keep the business running. Employees are very often forced to figure out how to increasingly produce more and more, with less and less resources.
During the time of my employment, I was not unhappy with my compensation. However, once I started learning about the marketplace for my skills, I found that I was being underpaid. Health insurance quality has steadily dwindled, in terms of price for value. Options for 401k investing are unusually poor.
Overall, I felt like the big guy was constantly looking for new ways to take advantage of the little guy.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Stop and take a step back. Reevaluate your strategic thinking and consider how your decisions affect the employees' ability and desire to do their jobs well. The job market is not what it was in 2009-2012, and talented employees do not have to settle for mediocre-at-best employment.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
