I worked at UCB (More than a year)
Great company with good pay.
Difficult if not impossible to translate internship into full time opportunity.
Advice to Management
In the US it would be good to have intern pay at US rates. Comparing yourself to industry standards UCB pays far less than competing organizations.
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at UCB.
Booked me to fly into Atlanta on the day a hurricane (irma) was projected, and was, over the Atlanta area. Rebooked my flight for the next day to still make a late interview with same day turnaround. UCB Never even reimbursed my expenses for making a serious effort to change plans to get there. Interviews were typical background and experience. Competed an “exercise” and was told that it was the “right answer”. Was asked about experience with specific databases. Couldn’t discern how navigating, extracting, or analyzing these specific datasets were particularly any different than any other application environment that couldn’t be learned in a day. Requested follow up multiple times to minimal to no answer. A simple no thanks would have been appreciated.
UCB was just named to the "Innovators 2015: Companies" list by PM360 for our focus on creating value for our patients. Thank you to all our colleagues who live this mantra every day. http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vImPO
Precision medicine is a hot topic in the healthcare world. But what exactly is precision medicine, and how can it help us accomplish our goal of delivering the right treatment to the right patient at the right time? http://glassdoor.com/slink.htm?key=vIG2v
