  • Culture & Values
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Research Associate in London, England (UK)

I have been working at United BioSource full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Overall a good package although salaries are below average. Environement is the best, people is friendly and wanting to support. Flexible hours though always benefitting more the company. Interaction and possibility of transfer to other locations.

Cons

Loads of irrelevant training with litle time for it. Long working hours. Some senior staff are not so knowledgable. Tight deadlines, last minute rush and underbudgeted proposals that make you stress out uncessarily, I guess that more of the same that is out there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management can be improved, it should be taken by someone only focused on management.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, decent benefits package, smart employees and fairly interesting work

    Cons

    Hard to say if the same problems exist today as during my tenure, but often senior management was not transparent and tended to be gossipy.

    I have been working at United BioSource

    Pros

    Early responsibility
    OK work/life balance
    Lower than industry-average salary for reasonable hours and little travel
    Relative freedom to manage own time

    Cons

    Unclear promotion structure / room for advancement
    Not a meritocracy
    Decentralized structure so there is a lot of office-to-office variability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to integrate the company and give people a clearer path forward. Reduce operational inefficiencies. Paying people better wouldn't hurt either.
