    Pros

    Free electronic screen wipes and coffee in the break room. Work from home 2x week but not a Friday with a following Monday (strictly). That’s the best that can be said about UBC.

    Cons

    Too many to mention. A couple of examples...

    - you reserve a conference room for a client call only to find that a VP or the Pres. has stolen your room without telling you, so you need to find a new space at the last minute. You and your team are late for the client call. Frequent occurrence, not just once in a while.

    - your contract requires a technology implementation. Your management signs the agreement knowing there are not enough IT resources to implement said project. Client is dissatisfied because their implementation is delayed. Finance and sr. Management is unhappy because revenue is delayed since you couldn’t bill the client for the project on time.

    Everyone is extremely overworked and stressed. Overall, a very unpleasant place to work. AVOID UBC unless you are desperate for some temporary income.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps do an employee survey to pretend you care enough to improve the environment.

    Pros

    Free pretzel Tuesdays, the team I work with

    Cons

    Very stressful, lack of cooperation and response from internal team members including Senior Management, only employees who worked together at another CRO with the president move up the ladder and are able to ride the wave without putting in much effort

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect, do not overload the employees who put in the most effort and actually do their job because those employees are sure to leave

    Pros

    Group worked in was best in class. Supportive management and director and colleagues.

    Cons

    Upper management only concerned about themselves. Very mismanaged and doesn’t care about their employees, only wanting to focus on money. Very emotionally immature executive management. Not leaders.

    Advice to Management

    None. Karma - what you sow is what you reap.

    I worked at United BioSource full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Insurance, 401K and PTO, and some good co workers.

    Cons

    The leadership team doesn't know what the word "lead" means. Can't trust anyone because leadership will use their "favorites" to get information they receive and harass and fire you. Working long hours, including massive overtime with no appreciation given.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the CEO of this company is to really look into who you have on the leadership teams. Make sure they know how to do their jobs and run their programs accurately before they can tell their staff how to do theirs. Employees shouldn't feel like they are working for slave drivers by tracking every move that they make from their desks and at their desks!! Stop forcing so much on employees when they can see the leadership team sit around and talk and laugh and play while we all are suppose to be working. Then when you make mention of it they cover for each other and make sure their "friends" get promoted to hire positions that aren't even qualified for. Many people are leaving by the masses because they are simply tired!! Get it together to be a better company for the ones who have to stay.

    Pros

    Flexiable at times, insurance

    Cons

    I am not saying anything new by adding to the point that this entire company clearly plays on favoritism and who has been there the longest. Management does not personally find out how people are doing but will rely on the incompetent misinformation given to them by those they promote(friends) who are truly the ones who do no work! There is no job security, as they have had two major lay offs in the past year alone and no one..at all..cares about your growth and will throw work at you, WITH NO TRAINING WHAT SO EVER and without any regard to your current work load! I would NOT recommend anyone applying for a position here.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention, be kind, we are not just numbers and you are going to continue to see good people leave if the culture does not change!
