No sense of work life balance here

Research Associate (Former Employee)
Bethesda, MD

I worked at United BioSource

ProsInteresting work, opportunities to travel, budget and time allocated for staff to attend conferences, nice colleagues (aside from management), great support staff

ConsLong hours, frequent cycles of staff turnover, lack of training for new hires, upper management without experience in management, lack of mentoring, unfairness in promotions - lack of consistency in promotions, emotionally unstable research leaders who curse at staff and send derogatory emails to the teams. Poor communication from senior management. Less generous benefits since MEDCO acquisition. Unrealistic utilization rates given work responsibilities.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe responsive to employee's feedback.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
