I worked at UCB full-time
Great team members. Great benefits.
Training could be improved upon
The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at UCB in March 2018.
After speaking with a recruiter and the hiring manager on the phone, I was invited for in-person interviews in Smyrna, GA on March 29, 2018. The interviews were strange to say the least and I was told that they will let make a decision in about 2 weeks. As of yet, I never heard anything back.
In addition, although the interview started at 8am and I was coming from out of town (3-hr flight), I was told that the company's policy was to fly you in and out the same day, which is ridiculous. I came in the night before and paid for my own hotel room, and submitted an expense report just for the transportation charges (to and from the airport). This was 6 weeks ago and as of yet, I am still waiting for the payment. I followed up by email and phone 3 times and they completely disregarded me. After this, I even wrote to the company's CEO and received a call from their HR department stating that they had trouble sending my information to the accounts payable group and then trouble entering my information in the system - for a month! She was going to "start the reimbursement process" a week ago and then mail me a check - via snail mail, probably so they can then blame the postal service for me not receiving the check. I asked that she FedEx me the check...of course I never received an answer back, nor did I receive the check. I wrote another email to the CEO last night and asked if they are in such financial difficulty that they can't reimburse candidates for their expenses - a meager $170. Radio silence. I am speechless!

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
