    I have been working at United BioSource full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Overall a good package although salaries are below average. Environement is the best, people is friendly and wanting to support. Flexible hours though always benefitting more the company. Interaction and possibility of transfer to other locations.

    Cons

    Loads of irrelevant training with litle time for it. Long working hours. Some senior staff are not so knowledgable. Tight deadlines, last minute rush and underbudgeted proposals that make you stress out uncessarily, I guess that more of the same that is out there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management can be improved, it should be taken by someone only focused on management.

    I worked at United BioSource full-time

    Pros

    Friendly colleagues who naturally leave the company very soon

    Cons

    Highly complexed and inadequate management, nepotism, favouritism, no clear career path, LIES that are too obvious, little money, micro-managers, people who seem to be appointed in roles randomly, irrelevant training, substantial training not offered at all, unrealistic expectations since all the wrong choices are made

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes and ears to what employees say. When they leave a group massively there is always a good reason for this (inadequate manager anyone?)

    Interesting varied work. EU processes need work. Remuneration could be better.
