Closer than you think

Next time you open your medicine cabinet or raid the cupboard for chocolate or even jump in the car, the chances are our technology has played a part. Our data management software is used by household names such as Danone, L'Oréal, BASF, Sanofi and Total. And our customers come from industries as varied as pharma & biotech, consumer goods, food & beverage, energy, academia, agricultural sciences, chemicals and healthcare.

Imagine a different kind of career

Whether you’ve got a background in science, software or corporate services, we’re always looking for motivated, exceptional people who’re looking for a different kind of career.

We’ve been doing things differently since 1989 in the scientific data management space and it’s reflected in who we are as a company. We’ve kept our start-up mentality, but work with big-name customers and brands. We’re tight-knit in our teams and our common goals, but operate on a global scale, with offices in the UK, Europe and the USA. We support our people in developing their careers and skill sets, but don’t box them into rigid job tracks.

    Graduate Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ID Business Solutions (Alameda, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional.

    I was contacted through email after 2 weeks of applying online. The email stated that my background seemed to align well with the qualifications for the position, and that they would
    like to schedule a short introductory call to discuss my background and their open position in more detail. I replied with my availability and we scheduled a call time. When the day came, I waited for 1h after the agreed time to receive the call, but none came. I then emailed the recruiter (instead of her emailing me) asking if there was a misunderstanding or if anything had happened. She replied saying that she had a connection problem, and rescheduled the call. At this second agreed time, I again waited for a call that never came.

    I really do not understand this unprofessional behavior, and based on other Interview Experiences posted here, it seems that this is not the first time they do this. If you are not interested in an applicant, let them know. I could have used the time I spent preparing for this call in preparing for other, more professional companies that are considerate of their potential employees.
