I have been working at UCB full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Great mission, great benefits, very diverse and inclusive, great employee perks (i.e. discounts, on-campus gym with free classes and membership, on campus car wash, and on-campus dry cleaners in the Atlanta location).

Cons

long work hours, hiring freeze (so must work a long time as a contractor first with no benefits), lots of training (mostly due to FDA regulations and SOP changes).

Advice to Management

I had a wonderful manager, but this is not the case for everyone. Overall, I think management is great here, but my advice for some managers would be to make sure you are utilizing everyone's talents. I saw on other teams where people with PhDs were only compiling reports from databases (no analysis necessary) and making copies for a living. And that can really lower morale. But if you make sure you bring this up in your interview, management seems pretty accommodating.

    Bizarre political atmosphere, often contrary to good business. Distinct operating culture between Brussels and US. Often leadership will defer decision making until the rest of world has passed it by.

    The US affiliate is a leading source of innovation. This is where the investment belongs
