Bracket is a complete grind

Project Manager (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsFlexible work arrangements
Very good people
Biotech industry with a focus on Technology
Diverse set of clients within the industry

ConsProject manager job is a complete grind
The work amounts to customer service a 2nd tier technical support
Actual project management is a relatively small part of the job

Advice to Senior ManagementStop with the band aids and look at organizational and process change. This is no longer a small company. The turnover here is way to high for a company in a good industry, that pays competitive thought not great salaries. The workload is uneven and most of the time unbearable, largely do to the poor distribution of work, the burdensome SOPs and the lack of ability to resource work effectively.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Unrealistic deadlines, Project Managers who promise the world only to disappoint clients

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at United BioSource


    Pros: Always something to do. Boredom is not part of my vocabulary here. Salary was above my… Cons: Resourcing is horrible. Project deadlines unattainable. Excess work means working weekends, holidays and even having to cancel vacations.
