Nice diversity, forward-thinking management. Good, genuine CSR programmes not just mere tick the box exercises. The CEO is a genuine person who doesn't show any form of arrogance.

At the time I was working at UCB, it was a confusing time with multiple re-organizations and strong-willed managers without much management skills. Colleagues were demotivated, stressed, and burned out. Things turned for worse when I came back from a maternity leave. Nobody new how to deal with the situation. I hope things are better now, but if I had to rate the company from my experience at that time, I wouldn't recommend it unless you just need a well-paying job in Belgium for personal reasons.
Pros
salary and benefits
Cons
toxic work environment

Dix années dans cette entreprise qui m'ont permises de changer de poste mais surtout de managers.
Excellente rémunération, beaucoup d'avantages extra-légaux. Délocalisations et pressions des actionnaires ont mené à de nombreux licenciements depuis 2008. Les attentes de l'entreprise ne correspondant plus à ma vision du poste d'assistante, j'ai pris une orientation professionnelle différente en réintégrant le milieu enseignant.
Pros
Excellent salaire et avantages
Cons
Trop de changements (délocalisation de services entiers à l'étranger)

Whilst there are some extremely dedicated and professional employees, In the IT Dept - there are some less than savoury characters in management positions - which have been allowed manage their teams with intimidation and a certain level of maliciousness.
The company does have a great focus on Patients and bringing solutions and cures that can significantly improve their quality of life.

At management level there was quite a high level of meetings, which were not always that productive.

There is not really an open culture of communication, speaking the truth or giving your opinion to the wrong person - could easily land you in trouble.

Most people are afraid to speak out because they have seen what happens to individuals that do so.

I can not be sure, but I think that departments outside of IT, might not have the same bad management issues.
Pros
Good employment package
Cons
Weak senior management and HR functions, for dealing with rogue managers

Being a part of the Formulation and Process Development Unit, I participated in a project based on evaluating potential CNS effects of excipients in vivo. Playing a role in the design and accomplishment of various experiments individually or as a team, I became competent in various in vivo techniques including actimetry, rotarod, and catalepsy.

I loved working there. A typical day I would call on physician and promote products to them. I learned that you need to build relationships. The hardest part was trying to see no access physicians.

UCB was an incredible company intern in, and an overall fantastic company to work at.

The headquarter building is great, with fantastic on-site (and affordable) canteen facilities, a gym, and a good-sized staff parking (as well as being easily accessible via public transportation).

There is a great atmosphere among workers and everyone is very friendly and helpful.
Pros
Great facilities, good atmosphere among workers
Cons
Not necessarily easy to get to know people
