    I have been working at United BioSource full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    hands on leadership style that help you learn, much better than useless training videos. Competitive salary, bonus, 401k, sharing options, healthcare, and additional benefits. Well rounded project tasks that help you learn the company quickly. Despite other comments, I find that there is a good work life balance and I have never had much issue with this

    Cons

    Can't really pinpoint too many cons in my department. Perhaps, too much differentiation between departments and company does not choose to work as a whole.

    Advice to Management

    More inter-department collaboration on projects.

    Pros

    Interesting work, opportunities to travel, budget and time allocated for staff to attend conferences, nice colleagues (aside from management), great support staff

    Cons

    Long hours, frequent cycles of staff turnover, lack of training for new hires, upper management without experience in management, lack of mentoring, unfairness in promotions - lack of consistency in promotions, emotionally unstable research leaders who curse at staff and send derogatory emails to the teams. Poor communication from senior management. Less generous benefits since MEDCO acquisition. Unrealistic utilization rates given work responsibilities.

    Advice to Management

    Be responsive to employee's feedback.
