I worked at UCB full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good Salary. Good Benefits. Decent product to sell.

Cons

Big Pharma environment. Emphasis on bean counting when it comes to calls, programs, and spending lunch budgets. Shifted from experienced reps to newbies that would take lesser pay.

Advice to Management

Stop allowing managers to hire their friends from former companies.

    Pros

    Solid vision and patient focus. Good people with a passion for what they do. Challenging environment makes for a highly interactive and fast paced environment

    Cons

    Management direction is at times inconsistent - requires nimbleness and agility. Capital structure limits investment in near term projects.

    Advice to Management

    While we always need to ensure current performance, we should also work on consistency of message and forward thinking.


  2. "UCB, not the place for me, not the place (probably) for you"

    Pros

    your employed with a pharm company and you have a good base salary and a co. car.

    Cons

    low level pharma company that poses as something greater. nothing new in the pipeline, no novel products, just 'me too' products that offer no real solutions to healthcare providers.

    Advice to Management

    just give it up and shut down. dont use the current economic situation as leverage to get employees to do whatever you want. It is a pathetic tactic used by the pathetic management.
