    I have been working at UCB full-time (More than 10 years)


    The clinical department at UCB in RTP is a very much like a family community, everyone cares about each other and are always supportive.


    We're still a little challenged by timely communication and decision making but it's improving.

    Advice to Management

    Lay all necessary ground work and finalize plans before implementing new processes.

    Clinical Operations Job Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience


    Thoroughly unimpressed-applied for a job I was well qualified (actually perfect) for, had outreach from HR recruiter asking to set up phone interview. Attempted to get something scheduled with no luck (recruiter kept pushing back week by week) only to find out that recruiter had obviously trolled my contact list to find my current colleagues in same role and reached out to multiple of them, including actually speaking with them (which she never actually did with me, even though initially requested). I have no issue with having other candidates, but follow through when initially asking for a call and don't make the candidate have to come back to you to see what is going on.

    Precision medicine | UCB

    By Marshall Spearman There is a saying in medicine: "Give the right drug to the right patient at the right dose at the right time." Sounds simple, right? In reality, defining the optimal treatment for a particular patient can be anything but.
