      Upper Management is delusional - stay away!

      Pros

      Work from home flexibility - while it is still available

      Cons

      Upper management is detached from reality No career development opportunities once you max out in your current position Upper Management will keep getting their bonuses and drive their expensive cars while the people who actually do the work sacrifice personal time to make deadlines. Taking away PTO carry over one week before end of the year is one of the most idiotic moves in the history of this company.

      Don’t work here!

      Pros

      Only pro is work from home flexibility which is being threatened by a new HR team who is out of touch with the industry and reality.

      Cons

      Overworked, underpaid and recent directives by upper management clearly show workers are not valued. Get the experience you need and get a better job elsewhere. Would not buy a used car from the CEO.

      Lacking diversity and Career growth

      Pros

      I had a good Functional Manager before the lay offs

      Cons

      There is no room for growth and no diversity (specifically black people) in upper management or in other departments. Issues like these are never addressed even though the President and company are well aware of these issues.

      If you are looking for a place to grow your career....don't work here!

      Pros

      The Pay is decent and some of the people are great to hang out with after work. Middle Management is supportive Company has given out annual bonuses since I have been employed here

      Cons

      Upper Management is unsupportive and demanding. The general consensus is that there is no work life balance. It's all work and nothing else. The company consistently fails in providing goals that are clear to the entire company. There is a huge shortage of employees in all departments, but only the PM group is actively being recruited for. The quality of the product produced by UBC is lacking because staff are not given enough time to effectively complete projects.

      Originally great company--not so great under Express Scripts--yet?

      Pros

      IN being an Express Scripts company--a fortune 100 company--one would assume lots of growth and opportunity. Great people to work with, flexible schedule and work from home. Decent benefits.

      Cons

      Not enough resources for all the work coming in--getting way more overworked on top of the already standard CRO overwork. Although I have plenty of PTO--can't find the time to take--work/life balance is struggling. Not enough support from upper management to line managers.

      No sense of work life balance here

      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.

      Very dissatisfying place to work

      Sep 19, 2011 - Senior Project Manager in Blue Bell, PA
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Only positive is some nice coworkers

      Cons

      No feedback about job performance. They set you up for failure before you even begin with no support from upper management for what you need to get the job done. Position not as portrayed in interviews, management changed, job description changed, salary changed shortly after starting. Work not recognized. Senior management takes credit for the everyone's work internally and to client. Any effort to escalate issues or request support to get what need to do the job ends in direct retaliation from the upper management member not doing theirs. This feedback is consistent among all PMs and people in other departments as well. Advice to anyone looking at this company - don't. They misrepresent the job and company in interviews and will sabotage your career.

      Pros

      Only positive is some nice coworkers

      Cons

      Job totally different than what is portrayed in the interviews. Job description, management, and salary changes shortly after started. No upper management support for what is needed to get the job done (despite what they say in the interviews). Upper Management takes credit for the work of others. Direct retaliation when several employees go to HR or managers with feedback of no support from upper management. Company structure set employees up for failure before you even start and will sabotage your career.

      Pros

      Most people were good to work with They care about their patients Could listen to music while processing paperwork Insurance is good and doesn't cost that much to have 401k matching

      Cons

      Management was not that great Hard to move up unless you were a guy or friends with high up people They do not care about their employees that are ranked under a supervisor position Mostly women If guys work there they are usually a higher up supervisor or upper management
