    I have been working at UCB full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits, flex time and working from home, patient centric company.

    Cons

    Too much turn over at the top as they can't keep a President longer than 1 year or so . No vision and middle management doesn't listen to the concerns of the hard working employees. A lot of favoritism and if you're not in the "in" crowd, you will not get ahead no matter how hard you work. UCB HR is awful and CANNOT be trusted. They are for the company, NOT the employee. Beware of this if you are interested in this company. You are on your own if you have any issues there.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your talented, hardworking employees. Stop throwing around stupid little perks like dry cleaning and car washes (that we pay for). You are not sitting in our situation yet you make decisions without thinking of the consequences to us. Eliminate the awful management you continue to keep - you know who they are yet you do nothing!! Shameful to say the least.
